My goal is to provide a safe, happy, and healthy learning environment where children can grow physically, emotionally,intellectually, and socially. I believe children learn best through play and when activities are developmentally appropriate and relevant to them. I provide a supportive play-based atmosphere so that each child can feel safe to try new experiences and learn at their own pace. In this way, I can protect the integrity of childhood while still preparing your child to enter school. Because I have a multi-age group, your child will have the benefit of both learning from older children and mentoring younger ones. Children will also be taught to respect each other, adults, and property. I strive to develop an open and trusting relationship with the families in my child care. It is my objective to develop a partnership with you in order to provide the best possible care for your child.
