Sottosanti Family Childcare

1909 Triumph Street, Vista, CA

Starting at $250/wk

Hi, my name is Theresa. I am a licensed childcare provider with 30 years of experience offering a loving, safe, and educational environment for all ages. My goal as a provider is to provide the perfect balance of discovery oriented play with structured learning opportunities in a setting that is safe, stimulating, and fun. My childcare business opened in Oceanside in 1990, I then moved to Murrieta and continued childcare for 17 years, holding both a small and large facility license. Newly licensed in Vista (Shadowridge) area and ready to enroll children in my program. Open from 7am to 5:30pm.

At the heart of my program is the idea that learning should be fun. We do this through the integration of structured educational activity and ample time for discovery play. Play is a critical part to the healthy growth and development of a child. Children develop socially, emotionally, and physically through play. The children will engage in both free-play and structured-play throughout the day. In addition to free and structured play, I participate in the Mother Goose preschool program which is a professionally planned preschool curriculum for ages 2 and up.

Another part of my philosophy as a provider is not only focused on free time for discovery, but providing this time within a structured daily schedule (however, this schedule can be flexible when needed for your child). Through my 30 years of experience, I have learned that children thrive when there exists organization, structure, and routine in their days. I have developed a specific daily schedule and activity flow that works exceptionally well and has alterations for all ages. Although I focus on a structured flow, I provide many variations in activity types in order to keep the children engaged and excited!

I look forward to meeting you and discussing your childcare needs. I truly love caring for children, and my many exceptional references are a testament to this. Currently I have a infant opening (a baby under 2yrs) and one for a child over 2 years old. I strive to ensure that each child in my care feels safe, loved, happy and is constantly learning. I look forward to meeting you.

Our Family Home Daycare, Gardening and Exploring with Children, are committed to providing a health and safety environment with children and meeting their own individual needs. We give good quality care and respect each child's individuality. We also provide community resources for families.
Teacher's Role:
Teacher will provide food and nutrition to the children, toothbrushes and toothpaste for each child, and a safe environment. Teacher will provide activities for children to engage using play materials. During small group, there will be hands on activities with art, puzzle play, role play activities, gardening, bird feeding, and much more.
Child's Role:
The child's role is to learn and explore through play. Children are capable of learning and experimenting their own objects as a part of their own particular interests and understanding. They are given a variety of choices of their own interests. Many activities that children follow the lead of the child and allow them to expand on their learning and interests.
In our Family Home Daycare, Gardening and Exploring, children will explore using their seven senses for their own developmental needs. They will be learning nature as a part of science, math, biology, and children will learn language development. They will be planting seeds, and watch them grow as part of their sensory development. I will be using the Reggio Emilia Approach as part of our curriculum.
I have twenty-five years working with children. I worked at MAAC Head Start and Early Head Start.

Elayna is just amazing! I was recommended to her through coworkers and couldn't have been more thankful. I was fortunate to be able to get a spot for my daughter that aligned with my plans to go back to work, which made that transition just a little easier. As a first time mom, I was nervous leaving my three-month old daughter with someone new - but with Elayna, I never needed to worry. Every day, I saw my daughter growing and thriving in her care. I loved catching up with her on our daily pick-ups, and felt comfortable seeking advice from her, which was great given her tremendous experience with babies and that she actually knows you and your child. Elayna is so full of love for all her babies, she treats all her kids (and parents) like they're part of her family. Even when it came time to part ways due to age, Elayna and I had open conversations about what would be best for my daughter. Her advice played a critical role in our new daycare selection, and I couldn't be more appreciative that she cares enough to help us navigate the many options out there. Elayna creates a warm, loving environment for all her families and we were so lucky that our first daycare experience was with her (she set the bar high!). Truly couldn't have asked for anything more - she's the best!
