Daycare Center

Rose Buddies Home Daycare

293 Pokorny Road, Higganum, CT 06441


My name is Crystal Stephens and I am married to my wonderful and very hard working husband Nate. I am also the mother of two amazing daughters, Riley, age 3 and Olivia, age 2. We have lived in Higganum for the past 3 years and I have been extremely lucky to be a stay at home mom. I have enjoyed being with my girls on a daily basis, including teaching, guiding, and having fun with them.

One of the reasons I decided to start Rose Buddies Daycare was to be able to stay at home with my children but also experience the working atmosphere which I have missed over the last couple of years. As far as my background and experience, I have always wanted to work with children. I worked at a daycare for four years, three of which were in the infant room. While I was working at the daycare I went to school to become a medical assistant in hopes of working in pediatrics. When I became pregnant with my second daughter shorty after beginning my work in the medical field, I decided to become a stay at home mom. I remain a certified medical assistant and am CPR certified. I have many other certifications from working at the daycare and taking classes. I also have experience working with children with disabilities.

I hold the following certificates:
The Power of Positive Guidance
Factors Influencing Child Development
Individualizing Curriculum To meet the needs, strengths, and Interest of each child
Establishing mutually productive relationships with families
Advancing Children's Social and Emotional Development: Temperaments of Infants and Toddlers
Providing a Safe, Healthy and Purposeful Learning Environment: Curriculum Themes, Projects and Activities
Advancing Professionalism in School-Age Child Care
Assessing Children's learning and development
Advancing Children's social and emotional development
Advancing Children's Physical and Intellectual development: Learning through play
Developmentally appropriate practices
Mandated Child Abuse Reporting procedures

I have the love and desire to work with children and help them form their personalities while letting them create, explore, and learn through play. I hope to be a good match for your family and for your son or daughter! I recognize each child is an individual with unique needs. I will always strive to nurture, recognize, develop and cherish each child and his/her personality.
