Daycare center



I have BA degree in Education with graduate level courses and 20 years of experience working with and taking care of children as a Pre-K Teacher, Elementary School Teacher, Day Care Supervisor and 5 years running my own business. I'm certified in: First Aid, Infant/Child/Adult CPR, Emergency and Disaster Preparedness and SIDS Awareness. I'm up to date with all required courses and trainings the New Jersey Department of Education requires.

I have an approved child care facility for infants (starting at 6 weeks old) and children 2 - 5 years.
I have dedicated the first level of my colonial house to my child care facility that is secure, safe, clean, pet and smoke free.
I offer full time, part time and drop in care.
I have a secure, safe, clean, fun and nurturing indoor environment and a small playground to play outside. Learning time and activities are fun, engaging and developmentally appropriate for young children. I have a professional curriculum purchased from an educational company and meets the standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children.

The activities for Infants/Todders includes: Literacy (books, story time, colors, shapes, vocabulary enrichment) and dramatic play (sensory art activities).
I also provide Music (songs, finger plays, nursery rhymes) and curiosity (peek-a-boo, hide and seek.) Construction (blocks, connectors) and physical development (indoor/outdoor) are available every day.

The activities for 2 years old and preschool includes:
- Literacy: Circle time, language development, phonics, alphabet, letters sound/recognition, reading, writing.
-They learn Mathematics: Number recognition, one-to-one correspondence, classification, early geometry and spatial sense, patterning, measurement, puzzles, blocks, first steps for adding and subtracting.
-I teach science such as: Observation, classification, experimentation, science concepts, curiosity development.
- Social Studies are part of my program: Manners, community work, share, take turns, virtues.
- Art is one of the children's favorite. I use a variety of materials to develop creativity expressions and fine motor skills.
- Music and dramatic play are very important for auditory discrimination, memorization, rhyme, play instruments, follow the beat, self-expression, dance, vocabulary, development, cooperation, and role identification.
-We practice indoor and outdoor motor skills.
