Education should feed curiosity. Don't you agree?

Our goal has always been to gear children toward independence. In the process, our extended family has continued to grow for over a decade!

Our licensed family home day care offers a program loosely based on Montessori education in a safe, clean, loving home environment. We seek to cultivate every child's natural gifts and multiple intelligence individually, and to balance instruction with natural discovery so that learning becomes intrinsically rewarding.

We feel a home daycare is the perfect transition between the safety of home and a structured school program. We use ABCs, colors, numbers, shapes, months, seasons, planets, states on a daily basis to develop children's intellect. We use free play, puzzles, pretend play, and dress up to develop their imagination. We use outdoor play to develop their bodies, coordination, large muscle motor skills. We use arts & crafts to develop their hand and eye coordination, their small motor skills, and to fuel their creativity. We also use Montessori tools to drive children's understanding to a deeper level and slowly build skills that raise confidence and leadership.
