I hold 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.
