Hello Everyone! My name is Nancy. First of all, I am a home daycare, Care.com has me featured as a daycare center. Just wanted to clarify my daycare is in my home. I have been married for 30 years. I have a son that is 29 and a daughter that is 27. I am a grandma (Mimi) to a sweet little girl. I enjoy scrap booking, doing projects around our home, cooking, being outdoors and my husband and I are involved with the make a wish foundation. I love spending time with my friends and family. I was a stay-at-home mom when my two children were young but when my youngest entered kindergarten, I got a job working as a second grade teacher's aide at their school where I taught for 10 years. During summer vacations, I had a summer program for children, kindergarten through sixth grade. After my 2 children graduated from eighth grade, I decided to open my daycare. Having my own daycare has always been a dream of mine. I have always felt a love for children, and I enjoy teaching them and watching them grow. I enjoy being home, and I feel that a small home daycare environment is good because it helps provide them a sense of security starting at a young age and also helps them develop social skills in a setting like their own home.
We do daily crafts, circle time and music time. As a daycare provider, I teach them many things. The children learn their shapes, colors, numbers, and letters at an early age. I feel that this helps with their overall confidence.I start potty training at age 2. Although some children are not interested until a later age. When children reach the age of 2.5 years old, we start our daily educational workbooks (some children are not ready until approaching 3). They feel great pride when they complete their books and can't wait to share them with their families. I encourage children to do what they are capable of doing. The children in become good friends in daycare. They look forward to seeing their friends each and every day. I provide a hot and healthy breakfast, lunch, and 2 snacks throughout the day. Each child has a bucket that they bring to daycare daily, Each child also has a daily journal to let you know how your child's/children's day was. I believe in positive reinforcement and being kind to others. We play outside daily (weather permitting). We have a variety of toys as well as ride on toys, and water tables.
