I am a professional In Home Day Care Provider and have been in business for 33 years now. I very much enjoy all of my kids I do believe they are the funniest lil' characters in the world. They bring so much joy every day just being their little selves, we have the best time and every day is a new adventure. We can learn a lot from our kids if we just pay attention they have a lot to say and I love listening to their stories with all that imagination. We are living in Tempe and really really loving our new neighborhood, we moved here on May 21st and my daughter is in high school. We're so stoked about her starting with this new school ,Metropolitan Arts Institute and I'm excited to get back to work. I ran my own in home Day Care for 33 year's in Sunland CA. But due to covid-19 just about everyone I know lost their clients including me, and my clients either had voluntary furlough, or knocked down to 3 days a week for their job and working from home.We weren't going to move here until July but I thought, well we may as well go early and establish ourselves in our new home, we couldn't be happier now. I have been a Day Care Provider for years and I absolutely love my work, all of it makes me very happy. So hopefully, everyone will be able to get back to their life and careers very soon, I am super happy about getting back into our normal daily life. If you should need Day Care even if it's just part time that you need Please let me know and I will be oh so grateful to help. I also provide all meals and all the arts and crafts, birthdays and Holiday fun stuff that we do,I will be opening as of August 3rd., I am CPR trained and Live Scanned, I am not Licensed,but I will only be taking 3 to 4 kids and here in Arizona you dont need a License unless you take in more.I will also do a back ground check no problem, please feel free to do this.I can also give quite a few references if you need I'm happy to give you..Thank You for taking the time to read my profile, hope to hear from you soon..

Reviewed by Jacquie 5/5 stars
Melody is such a loving and caring individual, and took great care of our 3-year old. We feel so lucky to have had her while we could. We had a previous bad experience with a different daycare, and coming to Melody's daycare was like night and day. Our daughter had so much fun there. She learned a lot, and they did so many terrific arts and crafts that she took home and was proud of, and also they worked on preschool skills like letters and the whole alphabet! She did something creative every day. Melody took the kids on walks and to the park, and they always got to play outside every day as well. She has a very structured schedule for the day, and our daughter really thrived there. Melody's daughter also was a huge help and our little girl looked up to her like a big sister. We miss Melody a lot since she moved to Arizona! Any parents will be lucky to find her because she will care for your child like her own. Thank you Melody!

Next Horizons

4525 S College Ave, Tempe, AZ

Costimate: $167/wk

Next Horizons is founded on the philosophy that childcare programs are an extension of home and family. In accordance with this philosophy, the center provides a family style environment that is warm and nurturing, as well as educational and stimulating. We believe that childhood needs to be a time of fun, joy, and exploration. Our goal is to partner with families to provide a safe, healthy and enriched environment for each child.

We follow a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Developmentally appropriate curriculum is based on the premise that play is the primary medium through which young children develop intellectual, social, and perceptual motor competence. Structuring the environment and planning activities for self-directed play is a fundamental part of the education program. Curriculum activities include pretend play, open-ended creative and sensory experiences (painting, sand and water play, modeling clay, collage activities, etc.) construction activities with blocks and manipulative toys, mathematics and language games, gardening, cooking activities, and science experiences.

The program also includes daily teacher-led "group times" during which time the children gather for creative movement activities, musical experiences, stories and games.

Next Horizons also aligns its curriculum to match Arizona Early Learning Standards and Infant Toddler Developmental Guidelines.
