Home Away From Home Childcare
121 Halcyon Drive,
Starting at $200/wk
I am a Type B in home provider and have been operating out of my home for over 6 years now. I am experienced with children of all ages. I am conveniently located close to I-70 by the Amazon Fulfillment Center. I am available between the hours of 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
I provide a safe and clean environment where your child(ren) can grow, play, and learn. Rest assured that your child(ren) will be well taken care of and treated no different than my own while in my care. Ratio is small, no more than 1:6, to ensure one on one personal attention and care, where quality far exceeds quantity. Our playroom is located on the first floor, where most of our activities occur. Our day focuses on an organized routine that allows for well-balanced structure and fun, both inside and outside (weather permitting); free play in the morning to accommodate drop off times and providing breakfast, circle time with craft/worksheet, outside play if possible, lunch, story time, quiet/nap time, the one and only "scheduled" snack time after nap, and free play throughout pickups. I provide preschool age children with a curriculum, involving daily circle time (which covers months/date/year, days of the week, weather, alphabet, shapes, color, and numbers/counting) and craft/worksheet/activity covering a topic on the circle time board, to help prepare them for kindergarten. Our circle time board is rotated weekly to ensure there is routine ample exposure to the material(s) during the week.
Rate is based upon state mandated ratio for in home providers, level of care, and offering the childcare tax credit. Rate also includes breakfast, lunch, and snacks (there is no regulated snack schedule, meaning if your child is hungry at any time they will be fed); all food is provided unless there is a specific dietary need. I do ask parents to supply any diapering necessities.
My home is smoke free and open to visitation. I have references from both previous and current clients upon request. I am approved through the state, via federal background check, to provide care for children in the foster care system (references available to confirm this as well because background check was sent directly to the agency since it was requested by them). Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Thanks!
