I want to keep educating myself and incorporating the latest technology, lessons, and all of the new things that are coming out all the time about the development of children. I love helping the larger community within my home. I look forward to expanding my space over time and being able to teach many children over the years.

We open at 7:30am and we begin the day with free play with a variety of toys. Then we clean up and wash hands and go potty before breakfast at 9am. We have a curriculum we follow to learn letters, numbers, colors, and shapes, before we go outside weather-permitting. We love to go out and be with mother nature whenever we can! After that, we come back in and wash up for snack time and prepare for circle time. We love circle time and reading stories. After that and some more free play, the children help with setting the table for lunch at noon, and help clean too. From 1 to 3pm we have nap time. For those children who don't rest, we have quiet play or we sit and chat quietly with each other. In the later afternoon we go outside once again weather-permitting and maybe go for a walk. Then we have puzzles, games, and singing until the kids have to clean up and get ready to go home for the night. It is a fun, packed day of learning and exploring for the children!

There are many important aspects of Family Child Care to me. one is an engaging and development-oriented curriculum. This is enhanced by my learning of how to be a better educator. I am also incredibly attentive to healthy eating. I want to make sure the children are nurtured and that everyone is happy and smiling. I love that my program is family oriented. The children get the care and the love in a smaller group that they wouldn't necessarily be able to receive in a larger setting, yet the daycare center structure and philosophies are all still there.

SolBe is an early learning center that re-imagines traditional notions of child care and nursery school. Our name defines our purpose: "sol" from the Spanish word meaning sun and the English word "be", combining into a name meaning "to be full of light". Learning is not the filling of a cup, but the lighting of a fire.

We aim to create the highest quality early learning experiences through a seed-to-table nutrition program, thoughtfully designed facilities, especially-trained-for-this-work educators, and a school culture influenced by the Reggio Emilia approach integrated with Spanish immersion.

Your wellness and the wellness of your child shouldn't be a question of either/or. SolBe is an early learning center committed to yes/and. Our dynamic program continually adapts and improves as we nurture healthy, engaged lives for children and adults.

The SolBe educational philosophy is heavily influenced by the Reggio Emilia approach; we believe children to be competent and capable citizens of our society. As such, we are careful to craft experiences and learning opportunities based on what we observe about children. We constantly look for opportunities to scaffold children s learning, which encourages them to be active participants in their learning experiences. This means allowing children the freedom to play and explore on their own accord, and the educator taking a role as a guide instead of the traditional gatekeeper of knowledge.

Our educational philosophy also encompasses best practices related to language immersion education. We are a Spanish language immersion program, which means that our day-to-day activities happen in Spanish. We value bilingual learning- and the cognitive and social-emotional benefits which bilingualism promotes.

Attention has been paid to the interactions between the physical learning environment and children, as well as how the environment impacts the interactions between educators and children. Our spaces have been intentionally designed to shift to the changing needs and emotions of the humans who use them. We re inspired by the Montessori method and its attention to beautiful home-like environments, which is reflected in our design.

Our seed-to-table nutrition program is another element of our educational philosophy. Research shows that when children are active participants in the growing and preparation of their food, they are more likely to try, and enjoy new foods. Children participate in a food preparation task daily.

Our absolute biggest challenge prior to attending SolBe was finding an early learning center with educators who would love my child and work with our family to care for him as we do. We want him to be seen as an individual, known by his peers and staff, and to be cared for in the ways he needs as he grows. This challenge made us feel like our son was just a number, just another child in a crowded class. No one had ever taken the time to get to know him. Every child deserves to be seen and heard and assisted in their individual space to learn and grow. We didn't feel like we were getting that. It's heartbreaking to see your child not be cared for, just to be brushed along in a herd. At SolBe, my child is loved. His needs and wants are nurtured. He's learning and growing at alarming speed because he is being heard, his abilities are being applauded and creatively challenged to grow. He's comfortable and happy. SolBe is a positive reference and a place our son requests to go on his days off. Our son sings to us in Spanish and requests to see his friends and teachers when he is home. He doesn't cry or panic when I leave him at SolBe. He tells me he loves his educators, unprompted! He is confident around other children and adults in ways he was not before. To somebody on the fence about attending SolBe, I'd say that investing in your child's care and wellbeing is worth it. This place is special, you'll know when you see it. We've never been more confident or calm about our child's wellbeing and growth than we are in the hands of SolBe.

Our son, JR, who is featured in the Featured Image above attends BOPN for three days a week and he is in heaven. He calls it nature school and loves his teachers Ms.SarahBesse and Ms.SaraMurray (all one word!). The teachers are truly phenomenal, so thoughtful and he has grown so much since they started. We are so thrilled with the program. They have amazing pictures of the kids every day which include our son hiking tons (we love that!), coloring with blueberries, being in nature, reading stories, exploring and generally having a lovely experience as children. The research that has come out about the benefits of kids being in nature is so huge and we are so lucky to be in the initial BOPN class.
