My philosophy:
I believe that children learn through exploration and play. Through play based activities, your child will grow socially, emotionally and mentally. I model and practice important skills such as how to handle conflict, how to be a good friend, how to be respectful and how to be social and open to new experiences. I believe in nurturing children through a caring and loving environment that supports the whole child.

Before returning back to work, my daughter did extensive research to find just the right full time daycare for her 9 month old daughter. After meeting with Debbie Muniz and touring her home, she knew she had found the right daycare and couldn't wait to tell me all about it. She was very impressed with how clean, safe and organized Debbie's house was. She really appreciated that Debbie made fresh cooked organic meals since my granddaughter had a few food allergies. She also liked the idea that the children get plenty of fresh air and play in the fenced-in backyard whenever possible. I know first-hand that Debbie does a great job teaching. My two year old granddaughter has good manners, knows all her colors, can count over 10 and is already learning her letters and the alphabet. Debbie also teaches by offering unstructured playtime (no TV) allowing the children plenty of time to play and interact with one another. Developed social skills is very important before starting preschool, and I believe my granddaughter is already prepared. Occasionally, over the past year, I have picked my granddaughter up from Debbie's home and have witnessed the genuine love she has for the children she takes care of. My granddaughter always wants to give Debbie a hug goodbye and says, "see you tomorrow ." It's obvious to me the children really are her extended family, and they feel the same way about her. I have gotten to know Debbie as well this year and love when she sends me a surprise picture or a text letting me know my granddaughter is having a fun day! Most of all, from a grandma's point of view, I love that Debbie has over 25 years of daycare experience. I highly recommend Debbie's Daycare Home to anyone who is lucky enough to have her take care of your children. She gets this tough grandma's seal of approval!
