O'connell Family Childcare

If you're looking for a loving and warm caregiver to watch your kids- you've found her! I am a loving SAHM looking to care for your children in my home. I have three wonderful children of my own. A 12.5 year old daughter, a 8.5 year old daughter, and a 5 year old son. They are all sweetnatured and well- behaved. The girls will be in school for a full day come Fall and I will only have my 5 year old son.
I have 5 years experience running a daycare out of my home. I have worked with babies, toddlers, and preschool aged kids. I live in a quiet, friendly neighborhood with a playground in the backyard. I am conveniently located off of Route 3, Main Dunstable Area.
As a Childcare Provider, my goal is to create and foster a loving and safe environment for your children. While your child is in my care, a typical day may include: Playing indoor and outdoor games, reading, free play, cooking, crafts, puzzles, circle time, music and movement, and gross motor play. We also like to take field trips to the park, the library, the mall, indoor playgrounds, museums, zoos, and go on nature walks and other special places like farms.
Since my son is 5 years old, I plan to implement a kindergarten curriculum that I will teach to him and any in-coming children. The focus will be on counting, identifying numbers, Identifying letters and their sounds, simple sight words, rhyming, learning to write your name, social skills, learning to share and also more hands on learning like planting a seed and seeing what it becomes. I also like to cover character principles: learning to be kind, to share, to be helpful, patient, etc. Plus, we will be working with play dough, kinetic sand, and art supplies to help strengthen their fine motor skills for writing in the future.
I also have a finished basement filled with toys and activities for children, with a large area to run around and get their energy out. We usually have a lot of fun and the day flies by. I would welcome your children into our family and would treat them as my own.
