About the Provider

Description: I welcome you and your family to contact me if you have any questions concerning Cathy’s Daycare. My name is Cathy Cruz. I've been a Fairfax resident for over years and I've had my in-home daycare for most of that time. I would invite you to check out some of the information I am providing you on this site. I ran my first in-home daycare for 5 years while my oldest four children were growing up. I have many happy parents from over twenty five years of providing my daycare service. They would love to tell you about their experience with me. I am very skilled at caring for children and managing their behavior in a positive, effective manner that builds their self-esteem and gives them confidence. If you are interested in a positive, loving, in-home environment for your child, contact me. Nothing takes the place of face-to-face communication when you are trying to get a feel for what type of person your caregiver is. I am looking forward to seeing and hearing from you.

Additional Information:

I have a certificate in Early Childhood Education and am currently working toward a degree. Childcare Providers and everyone living in the home have to go through rigorous criminal background checks, fingerprinting, fire inspections, and health department inspections before receiving their licenses. Everyone living in the home must also have a physical. We are re licensed every year. This requires a new application and a visit from a licensing specialist. We also have off year surprise visits from a licensing specialist. Fire inspections are done yearly. We must have a first aid kit that is kept well stocked. We must also have a substitute in case of an emergency. However, I have five substitutes. One of my substitutes is my husband, Mike, is also a substitute if needed. I keep in touch with many of my past daycare children and I have enjoyed watching them grow into young adults. I hope that your stay with us is an educational and uplifting experience. As a caregiver to children, it is often difficult to reach the phone. Please be sure to leave a message and your call will be returned as soon as possible.
