About

Hi! I'm Melanie, and I run Blue Sky Daycare, my warm and inviting in-home daycare. I've been involved in child care for more than ten years, and I'm still learning new things from the children in my care every day. I love to pull from a broad spectrum of educational theories to create lessons that nuture each child as an individual, and I'm especially drawn to the gentle, rhythmical practices of Waldorf education.
My love for childcare began during babysitting experiences in high school. From there, I was inspired to get a B.A. in Childhood Education from the State University of New York, and during my time in New York State, I worked as a preferred substitute teacher in the Saranac Central School District. I married, and my husband and I moved to Illinois where I had the excellent opportunity to be a substitute teacher in Libertyville School District 70. After the birth of my first child, I began working as a lead teacher at KinderCare, where I worked with infant and toddler groups. I opened my home to care for children in 2010, and Blue Sky Daycare has been a great place for kids to learn and grow ever since.

I continue to follow research in the field of Early Childhood and enjoy attending conferences and reading professional articles to keep a current understanding of best practices in the childcare realm.
