I earned a Bachelors of Art degree in Pre-K/Primary education. My journey in education began in 1992, as a senior in high school. My first job was as a 6 to 6 teacher. While earning my degree, I worked in several areas of education starting as teacher's assistant, and working my way up to Kindergarten teacher and then a Title 5 Preschool director. I am grateful for my degree and even more grateful for the employment opportunities I had while in college. Soon after I started my first teaching job, I realized I wasn't fulfilled and I missed the preschool age group. In 2004, I decided to take a risk and start my own business. I am so happy about my decision! I absolutely LOVE my job and I am tremendously blessed and grateful to do what I do everyday.
My program is play based with appropriate learning materials. There is a strong emphasis on Reggio Emilia philosophy. Each child will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of tasks that will allow for a balanced daily schedule of individual and small and large group activities.
A large portion of our day is based on language and literacy. Children love circle time and read alouds. My home will become your child's home away from home, therefore we prepare your child for social environments they will have to encounter. We teach your children manners and social etiquette. We model appropriate behavior and language, always emphasizing being polite and kind to others. An example of this is our approach to meal time. We all gather together to enjoy our meals. We model appropriate eating habits and graces. We hold conversations with children and model family style dining. We build on team work by asking others to pass food and encourage all to try new things. We also work hygiene into our daily schedule. The children brush their teeth before nap time. Because we have pets, pet care is also a part of our daily routine. Children learn how to care properly for our pets. They learn to recognize pet boundaries and how to use gentle touches. We believe that there is a learning experience in everything that we do and we like to take full advantage of all of our opportunities to do so. The world is our classroom.
Facility Includes: Two classrooms, One large living room, Large playground (swing set, climbers, play house, bike path, trampoline, bikes, balls, water/sensory table and sandbox), 12 Passenger van for field trips,Child sized furniture.

Healthy Toddlers Care mission is to provide a program which considers the intellectual, creative, social, emotional and physical development of the whole child while fostering curiosity, confidence, and compassion in an academically rich environment that inspires a lifelong commitment to learning. We believe that a safe, stable, healthy and culturally relevant environment is crucial to a child's growth. Through the cooperative partnership of parents and staff, we provide a model of community that will sustain and enrich our children throughout their lives.


Q: What age range do you accept?

Generally, we only accept infants who are 18 months and older. However, we may make an exception for a child who can walk and feed him/her self. If your child doesn't have these skills, it's best for you to sign up for our waiting list. However, we will except school age students for drop-in purposes. We understand that families need services when their school may have an extended holiday break or school closer dates.

Q: Do you have a cut off age?

Yes. Our enrollment cut-off age is four-years-old. We strongly believe that children need to graduate from childcare to preschool at age four. Just as students in an elementary, middle and high school are usually grouped by age, we find that the four-year-olds are ready to break away from the toddlers and infants to prepare for kindergarten.

Q: Do you accept part-time enrollments? I was thinking of using a childcare service for two or three days a week.

As a family childcare home, we have a limited number of students we can enroll. It doesn't make sense for us to allocate space for part-time students. You are welcome to enroll your child on a full-time basis and not send him/her every day. But we do charge full tuition for every child regardless of the number of days he/she attends.

Q: What are your hours?

Our regular hours are from 7:30 to 5:30. Ther

Jen, and her family/staff took excellent care of my baby girl full time and my boy after school for years. Our daughter had a lot of allergies and I felt at ease knowing she was getting personal care. We are extremely grateful we found a quality home daycare for our littles. We have years of fond memories and friendships.
