Smarty Pants Playschool is a licensed home daycare that operates Monday-Friday, 7am to 5pm. As our photos show, the kids are having fun while learning. I'm proud to be called Miss Rochelle, the owner of Smarty Pants Playschool.

My home has been transformed into my daycare center with attention to detail providing a safe, loving, caring and (non-smoking) environment with the objective of making learning fun through creative and innovation that comes from over 15 years experience serving my kids. (I'm sure my parents don't mind me calling them my kids because we are family.) I have excellent rapport with all my daycare parents and they have rated me the highest ratings as indicated in my reviews.

The kids I care for are lovingly supervised by me. My qualifications simply stated are:
*Early Childhood Education Degree,
*Current Type 04 Certificate,
*15+ years of experience,
*DCFS Licensed,
*CPR and First Aid Certified,
*DCFS Approved Continuing Education Classes.

Here at Smarty Pants, my kids are provided with:
Nutritious meals,
Fun, loving and nurturing environment,
Attention to each individual students' cognitive, physical and emotional needs,
Weekly themes and activities,
Learning is made fun and exciting,
Interest seeking nature walks.

It is my goal to ensure that all of my students are performing at their highest potential. With my commitment and dedication, my students are definitely prepared for kindergarten.

My students are reading, writing, counting to 100, using tally marks to add and subtract, telling time using a digital and analog clock. They know how to tie their shoe laces and use sign language as well. I utilize the Hooked on Phonics Program, ABC Mouse, Bob Books and Khan Academy and much more.

I invite you to call to set up a time to visit our daycare to see for yourself.

*Note: If you need evening or weekend care, that can be arranged individually.
