Family focused, early learning program in a STAR 4 setting in the South Hills of Pittsburgh.
As a family child care program, we strive to provide care with a loving, safe, and fun environment. We offer the opportunity to develop a consistent trusting relationship with your family. We respect each child and family's unique characteristics and welcome the chance to enhance our learning through your child's eyes. We offer continuity of care and work to build a lasting partnership with your family that frequently lasts long beyond the child care years.
Family style care provides a loving and learning environment for infants to school-aged children. Children are given professional care by two caregivers with an intent of developing their minds, bodies, and spirits. Older children enjoy helping the younger children while the younger children look up to and enjoy learning from the older children. Our time is spent in a play based environment doing developmentally appropriate activities that inspire children to want to learn and keep busy but allow time to watch the clouds float by. Children should be loved, held and hugged and afforded stable, long-term relationships with caring adults and children and routines that give structure as well as flexibility.
Bi-weekly themes give a centered direction through art, crafts, cooking, games, books and field trips. Reading to and with children is of utmost importance. Art and dance/exercise is a priority although teacher-led activities have their place in teaching children to follow directions. Children thrive in the fresh air of the great outdoors.
Our physical environment is part of our home. We serve healthy, home cooked snacks and meals. The children have access to art materials, science and math tools, a library, a dramatic play area, a block area, train table, and water/rice box. Just outside, the children can see a pond with goldfish and horses grazing. The outside area includes a grassy area with a stone path to sand/water tables, a natural playscape with a climbing area and slides built into the hillside, garden paths on a terraced hill, a digging area, and a stage with ramps.
Our preschool curriculum familiarizes children with written language, numbers, and developmentally appropriate learning objectives. Assessments, work samples and photographs are used to create a portfolio which is shared with your family. I appreciate that you allow me to share the responsibility of your child.

Sheryl has been helping to raise my child for the last 3.5 years. He started going to her home at the age of one. My husband and I are transplants and Sheryl is our family in a town where we have none. I can't reiterate enough that when your child is taken care of by Sheryl it isn't a cookie cutter daycare experience. What he experiences at her home is an environment to learn, grown, explore and imagine. An inclusive environment where he can feel safe to grow into the human he is meant to be. He loves to paint and draw, is proud to tell anyone that will listen about the weather or the phases of the moon, will explain how you build a pond, or how to comfort his friends when they are sad. He loves to tell me all the yummy food he's had each day, how to safely navigate the pool, what exciting discovery he made on a creek hike or what book was read to him that day. I could go on and on. We are thankful everyday that we discovered the magical world of Sheryl's house and there is no where else we'd ever send him to be loved and taken care of.
