Playground In The Pines Daycare

25 Forest Dr., Holland, MA 01521

Daycare center



My child care services "Playground in the Pines Daycare", were created to meet the needs of working parents and young children between birth and school-age. My home day care is not structured as a school but as a rather fun place to grow, learn & discover and to have every child feel as it's "home away from home". I am open Monday-Friday, 7:30-5:30 p.m. I try to be flexible to meet the needs of working parents. I provide a wide variety of appropriate developmental activities and experiences which foster a child's social, self esteem, self expression, social competence, emotional, intellectual and physical growth and development as well as cognitive needs and school readiness. They will also be great foundation for future learning experiences. I recognize each child as an individual, with individual needs and strengths. I offer flexibility and creativity, individual and group activities.
I also recognize that although a child may spend many hours at my home daycare, many other things are happening in a child's life. I am committed to working closely with each family in order to form a meaningful partnership which will enhance each child's experience and help each child to become the best at whatever they can be, and to do the best they can do. I provide age and developmental well-balanced curriculums of specific, planned learning experiences that support the social, emotional, physical, intellectual and language development of all children. Children will learn to play and play to learn. Each day activities that are entertaining and age-appropriate will be introduced to your child/ren. Since I have a small and cohesive group, children will have plenty of attention and hands on experience. Children will have a variety of indoor/outdoor play time activities to choose from including sports, constructive play, sand and water play, movement, science and games. Each day after lunch there is a "quiet time" designated to meet the individual needs of each child. Some of the children may nap while others may be involved in coloring, a movie, or reading a book. Other activities include story time, art time, music time, drawing, dramatic play, play dough, puzzles, block/trucks which encourages exploration, experimental and discovery. These are just a few of the interests children enjoy. Educational television shows, movies and videos such as Imagination Movers and Bunny Town, will be shown but limited. Occasionally, we may have a field day trip to the beach, parks, playground,
petting zoo or other fun places. I provide an abundance of toys for all age groups to choose from. I offer planned activities and crafts including cooking. Children love to be creative and imaginative! Children have open-ended playtime each day where they can explore and expand on their own special talents. Computer programs, games, educational workbooks and activities will be available. Children will be
encouraged to participate in grade level, phonics, letters, numbers, colors, shapes, reading, math, etc. as well as self help skills. Homework help and research will be assisted.
We also help explore and celebrate different cultures which many children are involved. Learning about how they celebrate special occasions, holidays, traditional foods they eat and clothing they wear has brought on great interest in minds of children. I have a Parent Handbook available which includes information on any questions you may have pertaining to my daycare program, rates, general info., policies as well as my background and references. To request a copy of my Parent Handbook, Enrollment Packet or to arrange an interview, please contact me..
