Miss Karen's Learn & Care Preschool
565 Robin Dr.,
Santa Clara, CA
Starting at $65/day
I've been a childcare provider for 30+ years and have worked with hundreds of preschool and school-aged children.
I have taught at public and private preschools, public elementary schools, and family daycare centers including Santa Clara Unified schools, Bowers, Washington Open, Wilson, Briarwood, Hughes, and Montague.
I raised six children of my own and was an active parent participant at their schools and extracurricular activities.
I have 40+ child development units, 130+ hours of professional development training, and an associate teacher's permit.
I am certified in pediatric CPR, AED and First Aid. I have Live Scan fingerprinting, a background check, and am a mandated reporter. I have extensive experience with English language learners.
My licensed family daycare facility (license #434411459) provides a full classroom environment for a variety of learning activities including math, science, cooking, music, sensory development, small and large motor development, conflict resolution, and outdoor play.
Our large classroom includes dedicated areas for reading, art projects, playhouse and dress-up, building, puzzles, science, and cooking, as well as outdoor spaces for biking, water play, climbing, and sports activities. We go on walking field trips to nearby parks and libraries.
I prepare a daily educational curriculum with activities centered around a theme. For example, Letter Jj Day, Counting & Sorting Day, Patterns Day, Cooking Day, Sewing Day, Color Green Day, Feelings Day, Nature Walk Day, Book Day, Measuring Day, Bubbles Day, Exercise Day, Opposites Day, Rhyming Day, Gardening Day, etc.
I provide breakfast, drinks, snacks, teeth brushing, and laundry services. Children bring their own lunches. Each child is provided for individually based on his or her dietary needs.
A report is sent home each day outlining foods eaten, nap times, and the activities that each child participated in.
I am open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. I accept full-time, part-time, and drop-in students ages 1 year and up. Children do not need to be potty trained.
The children in my program are a very large part of each others lives, as well as mine. It is very much like a family.
