Costimate: $307/wk

(14)
Danika's Home Childcare (facility #304312499) hours are Monday to Friday 7:00am to 6:00pm. It's affiliated Children's Home Society, Department of Ed, and Social Services for subsidy payments as well.
I started out in my profession as an Assistant teacher, eventually moving up to Lead Teacher in the Corporate Child Care field. I was there for more than 10 years. I loved what I did in the education/child care field; but wanted to take what I truly enjoyed doing down to a smaller scale. When the opportunity came in 2013, I said good-bye to the corporate world and said "Hello" to Family Child Care. I received my license in August, 2013. I am continuing to teach a combination of the corporate-level curriculum that I found to be most beneficial for comprehensive learning while still maintaining the guidelines set by the State of California.
I have been teaching/caring for children in my home now for over 6 years! I love what I do! We have a lot of fun. Right now, I have Toddlers and Pre-K enrolled. We have been learning the basics starting with the alphabet, numbers, colors, various themes, outside play, and our favorite of celebrating various Holidays/Seasons. As they get older, we will gradually progress to Phonics, Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, with more advanced/challenging curriculum. Currently, I have been incorporating these topics by teaching through play, as well as doing a "Circle Time" - type daily lesson plans. Our meals/snacks are Family Style - where we all sit down together at the table to eat. I offer Breakfast, AM snack, Lunch, and a PM snack time.
I am fully licensed with State Clearance. I have my Associate's degree in Child Development and Educational Studies. My child care is licensed for 6 weeks old to 10 years old. I am being fully certified in Infant/Pediatric/Adult CPR/First Aid, Health & Safety certified. I am affiliated with the National Association of Family Child Care (NAFCC); Children's Home Society of Orange County (CHS); the City of Irvine; and Orange County Association for the Education of Young Children (OCAEYC). I can also take CalWorks on a case-by-case basis.
I currently have children under 24 months old enrolled; however, one of my children will be turning 2 years old in a few months.
I also have back-up teachers on-call for when I am out ill, doctors' appointments, vacations, etc.
My hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday; will be closed some days due to holidays, etc. Please inquire for more information

A Wee Lil Tots Daycare

5005 Goodwin Dr, Plano, TX

Starting at $150/wk

ONLY ACCEPTING AGES 3 and 4 years old. 3 years old and older MUST be potty trained or training almost complete.

Your child will be well prepared for kindergarten, with a great combination of curriculum as well as maintaining a schedule for consistency. From 9:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. is an organized classroom like schedule and these are some of the things we cover daily.
*Monthly curriculum that covers more than basics with worksheets and projects.
*Math-Touch Point numbers - a great basis for numbers and math. Base Ten Concepts - math system used by most school districts.
*Reading program that has your child reading (phonetically) by kindergarten.
*Amazing writing skills by school time.
Note: Former graduating students have all been quickly placed into the "Advanced Placement" classes after entering the school system.
I strongly encourage mastery of self-help skills, independence and socialization, however, play promotes progress for developmental milestones. A means through which children learn, socialize and express feelings. Play is critical to child development!
I put a lot of time and energy into my daycare/preschool, as well as the daily care of the children.
It is a great combination of home and school environment, minimizing the stresses of your child being separated from you.
The school curriculum and schedule will help in establishing a more relaxing transition into kindergarten for your child.

I would love for all ages to benefit from this program, however, I do not provide care for infants so that my days are devoted to the appropriate activities for the older toddler/pre-k age group. I am well established, with a spacious playroom, a ridiculous amount of toys and a large backyard.

The backyard includes play equipment (climbing, swings, slides), 18 x 8 sandbox, and plenty of running room.
We do have water activities in the summer to help deal with the heat, enabling outside play time.
