"Key Words" describing my Daycare:
Very loving, gentle, fun, silly, patient, lots of personal attention and sincere love. I feel we create a loving family within our home Daycare, allowing the children to feel very comfortable and inspired to unfold and become the wonderful little people that they are from exploring the many classes, activities and free play each day. Lots of holding, loving and singing to babies and one on one.
