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.
