I am a licensed, home-based group daycare/preschool provider. I have a Masters degree in Education with a specialization in Child Development. I am CPR/First Aid certified. I continue my professional development by taking training workshops in child development, child safety, effective methods of nurturing positive growth and development in children, proper nutrition for children, and craft ideas. I am also listed in the database of the YWCA Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) program.

I have been licensed by Illinois Department of Children and Family Services to care for children in my home. This means that, after investigating my background, visiting my home and collecting written references regarding my character and abilities, Illinois Department of Children and Family Services has given me approval to care for children in my home. In addition, I must adhere to their strict standards/guidelines for excellence in child care.

The program curriculum includes developmentally appropriate learning materials and activities to promote learning and development for all children. Children grow and develop at different levels and the program curriculum is adjusted to meet each child's individual needs. Children also learn through play and are given opportunities throughout the day for group play and free play.

I also believe in positive family-school relationships, which helps support the child's learning and development.

At Smart Beginnings child care we have the philosophy that "If a child can't learn the way we teach, we teach them the way they learn." We strive towards using our medical backgrounds to develop plans to nurture the mind, heart and the body of a child through education and physical activity. Our goal is to provide a safe and comfortable environment in which a rigorous curriculum is taught, while our specialized gym provides opportunities for physical development and growth.

As part of our goal to keep you involved in your child's progress, our teachers will keep you informed of their activities and their routines, and any changes made to them. Not only will you get updates on what they learned throughout the day, but also updates on their behavior and their interactions with other children, their eating habits, their interests and any/all academic achievements/milestones.

Although our door is open to you, to walk in and to check on your child and our services at any time, we have also created a handbook to familiarize you with our policies and guidelines of our school, which will be provided to you at the time of enrollment. The policies and guidelines within the handbook adhere to the state licensing standards, Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and their accreditation standards, along with guidance from various practicing physicians.

If you have any questions or concerns about the guidelines and policies of our organization, we encourage you to come and speak with us, and we will gladly have our Director or one of our Board Members provide you with clarification on any topic, or answer any questions you may have. If any changes, or revisions, are made to the guidelines and policies we will be sure to provide you with prior notice, and reasonable time before the policy takes effect or impacts your child and you.

Again, we look forward to having you be part of our Smart family, and putting your child in our capable hands. We hope that our relationship will be a fruitful and harmonious one, and mutually beneficial - we hope to create lifelong relationships with you and your child. Come and grow with us...
