Aunt Molly's is a dynamic home daycare run by a social worker and now adding an elementary teacher. We have over thirty years of experience working with kids and families. We are in a large, single family home right on Bluemont Park with two large, sunny playrooms, separate nap room, a deck, patio,and endless backyard! Our focus is on twenty months to four-year-olds and the developmental stages they go though during this age.
Please note that I do not accept infants.
To learn to love learning, kids need to have fun and feel good about themselves. We offer a comfortable home environment where your child will have lots of opportunity to play and be a kid! We believe that children should have an early period in their lives when they can experience the world at their own speed in a non-rigid environment. We offer young children the opportunity to run and play and express themselves in their own special way. My program is small, so we can get to know each child and offer them the attention and time they deserve.
Here your child will enjoy learning the life skills and the preschool basics they need to start school.
My program provides nutritious food (2 meals and snacks) with lots of variety as part of the USDA Child Nutrition Program. We teach healthy eating habits with lots of outdoor activity and daily exercise. I keep a clean home but know children learn through sensory experience. Here they will be allowed to dig in to learning and get messy while doing so. They will also learn to clean up after themselves!
Along with playing and learning, we read, listen to and play music, do arts, crafts and imaginative play, take nature walk, learn how to follow rules, listen to adults and to be considerate of others. I respect and love children's individuality and will support you in developing your child's sense of self esteem. We go on regular field trips to the park and take the time to enjoy the fun of childhood!
I believe in being considerate, committed, consistent and disciplined. I am somewhat old-school in terms of rules and respecting adults and believe in constant positive reinforcement to keep negative behavior at a minimum. I treat children with respect, love, lots of fun and wackiness,while, as my niece says: Aunt Molly runs a tight ship!
