“Play is the highest form of research” – Albert Einstein
Our childcare space is divided into 2 rooms: 6 months to 3, and 3 and up. Most of the year, we only have kids 6 and under. During school breaks, we welcome kids up to 10 years old.
In the baby and toddler room, the focus is learning through play. The kids have a theme for the week and explore the theme through new toys, crafts, and books. Babies sleep as needed, and the toddlers have nap time form 12:30 until about 2. The classroom is breastfeeding, formula feeding, and cloth diaper friendly. The class ratio is 4 kids to 1 teacher (the state standard is 6 kids to 1 teacher).
In the preschool room, the kids work their way through the Zoophonics curriculum with Mrs. Chantel, and as well as working on crafts, rotating centers and real life play. When it is under 90 degrees, the class also goes outside to our gated play area. Preschoolders that need to nap can do so in the toddler room from 12:30 until about 2. The class ratio is 8 kids to 1 teacher (the state standard is 13 kids to 1 teacher)
Snack is provided everyday at 10:00 am and 2 pm. Lunch time is at noon. please bring your child a packed lunch if you plan on staying around lunch time.
Moms are welcome to check in on their kids at any time.
All of our teachers are CPR/First Aid certified, and have fingerprint clearance background checks.
Meet our Teachers:
I have been in childcare for over ten years. I’ve run a home daycare, been a Preschool teacher and everything in between! I love being with the three to five year range. They are so smart and watching things click for them and their little “big” personalities develop is my favorite! When I’m not lesson planning, I love to spend time with my husband and kids. I also enjoy reading, photography and all things Color Street.
