About the Provider


I provide a small group setting that offers each child one on one attention in a developmentally appropriate environment with just a few children. This smaller group will afford me the opportunity to work with each child on his/her various levels of development and also encourage a safe and secure child/caregiver bond. I will supply the time, materials and guidance for each child to succeed in their learning journey. The importance of the first three years in a child's life are finally being factually represented and because of this I have decided to focus on this most important age of development. The children are engaged daily in a variety of activities that are intended to develop good social, emotional, cognitive and physical development as well as lay a strong foundation for language and reading readiness skills. Consistency and creativity are key elements in my program allowing for unique learning styles and developmental needs. My goal is to provide the best quality child care using proven resources that enhance each child's daily experience. The children are exposed to fun activities that encourages creativity and discovery in environment for gaining friendships while encouraging self-esteem and confidence.
