About the Provider


It is my philosophy that kids are little people that are doing there best to learn the way of this world. I am a strong believer that kids need redirection, guidance, and  encouragement  to be successful.  We provide a safe, secure and relaxing envirnment for your child to learn and grow. Here at LITTLE ROUSTABOUTS, every moment is a learning moment. We offer a fruits and veggie garden, along with a rose and flower garden for children to pick flowers from. Arts and crafts are offered 3 times a week. If it is sunny your will find us out side in the back yard. We provide preschool year round. From time to time we go on field trips. We frequently go to the local park and library. I also participate in "Kid Care Nutrition", so your child is granted to be getting healthy meals. 

Additional Information:

I do offer a preschool program 5 days a week. you kids will have structured play time, story time, as well as free time. I offer 3 meals and 3 snacks a day and provide, most of what your child will need while they are in my care.

keep your kids safe Mar 12, 2017

Very fearful for anyone willing to take their kids here! The cops are there at least once to twice a week, her own to children ( boys) are very unpredictable and in constant trouble with the law . There's drinking and partying at all hours of the day and night and mind you this is a 24 daycare! Stuff stolen from around our neighborhood vandalized and even as far as trying to kill the small animals is just a short list of what her own children have done. Strange men in and out and have even been seen left with small children . Have also seen small children left alone outside in the front of the home. Have reported but somehow still has a daycare ????? If you want you kid in a safe place this is NOT it!!

I am appalled this provider is still in business, My child was left in her care and when I returned for my child she was not even there, she had left him with another person I did not even know, Her home is out of control, her own kids are in constant trouble with the law.. I am fearful of any child left in this women's care, on top of that she herself has been charged with domestic violence..DO NOT TAKE YOU CHILDREN TO THIS DAY CARE!!!

I have toured this provider's facility, but have not used its services

Since I can not select no stars I have to at least place one. I am very fearful for anyone who dares bring their child here. Despite the fact when walking up to the house and hearing this women I never met at the top of her lungs screaming the house was a complete mess. There were 2 older boys running around so wild I did not know what to think. I had never heard children talk to a what I assume was their parent like that and to be allowed these little children was something of a huge concern. Needless to say we wont be returning. Please Parents really put your kids first think of them do not put them in a place where they could be in danger and you are not there this place is not safe for ANY child

Ranae is very welcoming. My children love it at her house. They tell me about all the phone they have with Ranae from making play dough to baking cookies and picking flowers in the garden. Ranae has helped my children to learn and grow. She teaches Spanish and sign language to the children. I feel so blessed to have found such a great provider for my children. Her rates are very reasonable compared to others in the area. She is very dedicated to helping parents raise great kids. She has definitely made a positive impact on my children and our family.

It is clear to me that Ms. Ranae has dedicated her life to childcare. Her home is impeccably well kept and she has an awesome play area for the kids. My son loves coming here every day. I like her attention to detail, caring nature, and the fact that she is so welcoming. She is professional and communicates well. She also devotes time to learning, reading, and makes so many activities fun. She has supported us in potty training and my son learned quickly. I have all the confidence in Ms. Ranae and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Do don't come here. She is very unprofessional has outrageous rates, and takes personal time off during the week when she is needed. As a babysitter she is suppose to work around my schedule not hers. I would take my children to a more experienced and professional sitter or daycare center.

I can't say enough about this provider. her home is always clean and she always feeds my child healthy meals and snacks. She has made potty training easy for my son and he love it at her house. It is the first child care place I have been able to leave without hearing my child cry and scream for me. She get them ingaged in learning and makes it fun.

I highly recommend her!!!!!
