Ms. Mercer's Mini Monsters

516 South Street, Elgin, IL

Costimate: $206/wk

I own an in home daycare called Ms. Mercer's Mini Monsters Day Care in Elgin! I grew up in a home daycare and feel it created a unique opportunity. Home daycare is not babysitting. It's not comparable to any child care center. It's families in relationships with a professional care provider. Its an environment that by design becomes a second home where a bunch of people are coming together to care, trust, educate, and listen to each other. I truly believe that children are our future and when they are put into an environment that fosters creativity and growth they can do amazing things! We have two Yorkshire Terriers and a tortoise. My husband works as a union painter. I graduated high school in 2007 and then went on to study the IT field. I fell in love with the childcare field in high school working as one of the daycare teachers for child development class credit. Each child will be given 1-3 meals a day, depending on the hours they are in my care, and two snacks along with drinks. Each meal, snack and drink will be free of GMO's and be of good nutritional value for a growing child. I will be familiarizing the children with sign language, Spanish and German. Children will begin to prepare for kindergarten by learning basic math and the alphabet. I will ensure the children learn appropriate ways to express their emotions and opinions. We will have crafts along with fun science experiments and projects. I will also be taking the children on field trips such as the nature center, Epic Air, Monkey Joe's or library to broaden their horizons and keep them active. In the past we have gone to the Shed aquarium, Sesame street live and Ice skating. I have a zoo membership that will be used often for daycare outings. In summer we are in my huge backyard as much as possible. The backyard has a pool set up that we enjoy as much and as often as we can! We also have lots of cars, power wheels, a bubble machine! and a sand station. By taking no more than three children at a time I am able to give each child the care and attention they deserve. I know a child is a parent's everything and promise to treat them with the care, respect and dedication that they need. From the second your child walks in my door I make sure that they become scientist, explorers, Feel respected, loved, and important, but most of all! know that they are the reason we are all here ,together, at daycare!
