Best Friends: Toddler Time, Preschool & Daycare

9689 Pickerel Lake Road, Petoskey, MI 49770

Daycare center


I have an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education. I worked for Head Start Preschool for the past 5 years. I worked for many different daycare centers before that in infant toddler rooms, preschool and after school programs. I have taken everything I learned... likes and dislikes!... to make my preschool/ daycare the best! :) I went to a conference last fall and have plans on making a Nature Explore playground...very excited about that! I love going to conferences and workshops, we learn so much!
We have an experienced, loving staff! Our preschool teacher was a Head Start teacher for 20 years, I worked with her in Head Start and am excited to be working with her again! Our ideas for what a preschool should be is the same, lots of hands on, flexible, being name a few things!
I have my mother working here, she also worked with Head Start and runs the nursery at her church. She is retired as head supervising cook at Inland Lakes Schools. So we have some great meals around here! :) Oh, we do provide all meals and snacks. My daughter is working here as well... she is a cosmetologist and is taking time off to be with her 5 month old baby. Kids love her! Parents who came to the salon would compliment her on her skills with their children. I love having them both here!
