Licensed by the State of Connecticut, we follow State regulations but go above and beyond what is standard. We are CPR/First Aid Certified; I am EPI Pen/MAT trained, hold a Child Development Associate Credential (CDA) and attend Child Development courses regularly.
I want my home to be a happy place for your child to come and spend the day. My first priority is keeping them safe and well cared for; when the day allows teachable moments, I will take every opportunity to help them grow not only physically and cognitively but also socially and emotionally.
Every month we have a theme, a color, a number and a shape. Using age appropriate activities, they will be exposed to information needed for preschool and kindergarten readiness; allowing for developmental growth and expanding their confidence, social skills and independence.
Our daily schedule manages a balance of tending to basic needs, play and exploration. We make time to keep bodies healthy, clean and rested while enjoying our day learning. Please call or email for more information about our daily routine.
Our Elements of Education
We foster a love of language, reading and communicating using books and songs to engage and encourage participation from every child.
We foster problem solving skills by introducing shapes, patterns, counting and sorting.
We foster artistic expression through crafts, music, dance and pretend play; allowing for every child to express or discover their talents.
We foster an appreciation of science using everything around us to encourage exploration, curiosity and experimenting.
Our Healthy Bodies
We encourage healthy eating habits and physical activity as we lead by example, offering nutritious snack and meal options and gross motor skill activities.
Our Big World
We recognize the diverse culture of all the families we serve and encourage every family to introduce their traditions and background. We teach tolerance and acceptance of the diverse world around us, respecting people and our environment.
Our mission is to provide a safe, nurturing and educational environment to all children in our care. We will strive to be an extension of support to each family to achieve affordable and high quality care in a home setting. Our efforts will provide each child with the tools needed to develop cognitive, social, emotional and physical development in a loving environment encouraging each child to develop at their own pace through play and exploration.
