Michelle's House Child Care
5407 Driftwood Road,
Starting at $200/wk
I have a great group of children that are looking for a new playmate to share smiles, laughter, and fun. I have one opening for ages 1 1/2 to 4 years old. I am looking for a family with low contact or no contact employment that takes social distancing and all Covid guidelines seriously. I am striving to keep all families in my care safe and well while Covid-19 is a threat.
I have been providing child care in my home for 35 years. I began by caring for a neighbor's child while I was at home with my own young children. My plan was to enter the work force after the children began kindergarten, but, before they began kindergarten, another family in the neighborhood needed child care. And so began my career in child care. As the years went by, my children went to middle school, high school, and have finished college, and I still have "children at home". I fell into child care by accident, but after all these years, I still find it a fun way to spend each day!
I strive to ensure a safe, nurturing, and homelike environment for the children in my care. We have a wonderful playroom for the children. This provides a fun and safe area that is just for the children. Our backyard offers outdoor fun for all! The yard is enclosed with a 6' privacy fence and the play area is mulched with lots of play equipment. There is plenty of grassy area for running and playing. Our home is smoke-free, pet-free, clean and well-organized, while still being welcoming and comfortable.
Our day is routine and lightly structured, I keep meals and nap times on a consistent time schedule. During the "school year", we have planned learning activities. Our activities are pre-planned and are included in the monthly newsletter and calendar. I try to keep the learning fun, age-appropriate, and engaging for all ages of the children in our group. I provide the extra attention that home based care provides, along with preschool activities that promote early learning in a much smaller setting.
I was registered with Action for Children 1989 through 2016. Sadly this program has been discontinued. My husband and I have been fingerprinted and have background checks with local and federal databases, including the sheriff's office and a background check with Children Services. I have also completed over 200 hours of training in many aspects of caring for young children and the business of home based child care.
