"Buttons & Bows Daycare" has a motto when it comes to curriculum and that is; making learning fun and enjoyable by being creative. Being in a "home" sets a relaxed atmosphere, I feel children are more comfortable with the familiarity of the environment which promotes concentration, and overall a more secure and stable child. I believe in a structured schedule just as a school offers. A daily schedule offers little or no guesswork for the child; they can literally tell me what the next activity is. A daily schedule is provided along with the registration paperwork. Here is a few examples of what we do: Meals-breakfast and lunch, p.m. snack (all nutritious and delicious), Music and Drama (using instruments, singing, and playing "dress up"). Arts and Crafts, signing class even infants can participate in, storytime (using puppets, and visual aids). In the summertime, we walk to the nearby parks and create masterpieces on the sidewalks as well as have picnics and playtime. In the backyard we enjoy water activities and look for bugs to catch and release.
Let me tell you a little bit about my husband and I. My name is Shanan and I am a "kid at heart" and love being around children, playing, laughing, hugging, or just smiling at them. It is not out of the ordinary for me to make a silly face just to get a child to smile. That is just "me." I have had a passion for children my whole life. It's what I love to do! My husband's name is Scott, and he usually joins in on the activities and fun in the afternoon. We are a blended family, and by saying that, we have the capacity to love other peoples children. which I feel is a "gift." (our children are all grown up, living out of the home) Together we provide a peaceful and loving home. Scott is also my emergency backup just in case. He is CPR and First Aid cert.
As far as holidays go, I am off most federal holidays. Sick day policy is to provide parents with plenty of notice if at all possible. Calls or texts will be made by 6 a.m. However, I do communicate earlier if I feel the need. In the past 6 yrs of business, I have only called in "sick" twice. All of these policies are written out in my registration form which is handed out at orientation.
In closing, I want to thank you for taking the time to consider "Buttons & Bows Daycare, LLC. as a potential place you would like to visit. I really don't think you will be disappointed!
