Thirty plus years Experience, caring for children newborn through 6th grade. (and up to 18 for special needs children) for the "big kids" We provide rides to and from school, help them with their homework and give them a snack as soon as they walk through the door, Mother Goose Time preschool for our toddlers and work extra with the 4 to 5 year olds during nap time/quiet time to make sure they are ready for kindergarten.
We provide Breakfast, lunch, and snacks. Do special Birthday celebrations for your child including a gift, balloon, card and special dance party, have themed Fun Days, and holiday parties including goody bag and a project or craft for your child to make.
We pride ourselves on being the kind of place, your child loves so much they cant wait to get here and come running through the door. Where moms and dads leave their children and feel good about it knowing every day we do several structured activities like crafts, play dough, baking, games, dancing,singing,and preschool (from 9:00 - 11:00). We play with the children not just watch them play. We read at least 3 books a day and play outside weather permitting. We never let the T.V. Babysit them.This is the place where they are nurtured by a mom and loved and cared for as if they were my own.
When I hire my helpers I look for someone with a lot of energy to keep up with and play with the kids. someone sweet and caring I usually hire a college student choosing a career around caring for children like early childhood education, teacher, or social worker. I always get a background check.
During summer we go on Field Trips every other Friday to places like the Pumpkin Farm, ZOO, Movies, Bowling, Swimming Pool, Splash pad, Chuck E cheese, and picnics at the park. At the end of summer we have an open house/BBQ so families can get to know each other. Last year we brought in a petting zoo.
