About the Provider

Description: Choosing childcare is one of the toughest decisions a parent makes in the early years of parenthood. Despite all the research that a parent does to make certain that they are making the right decision, after all the checks and balances are performed, the choice often boils down to the gut feeling that you have when you feel that you are simply in the right place. When I started Magic Moments, the vision was rooted in the "extended family" concept. The primary principle behind this concept is the belief that together, Magic Moments and each family we serve, are committed to creating a better tomorrow for the children in our lives. While this may sound a bit idealistic, it is my belief that each day we are blessed with an opportunity to do just that, make each brighter that the day before. With this principle as our guiding light, we endeavor each day to create smiles, give hugs, and impart lessons that will serve our children for the road ahead. Many of the lessons that we teach our children come in the form of a structured curriculum that is supported by daily activities that help them to learn the concepts that they will need as they enter kindergarten. However, there are many lessons that are taught simply through daily living experiences that create "magic moments" where children learn how to become good citizens, create friendships and discover the infinite possibilities that exist within their imagination. Our job is to teach them how to transition dreams into reality. These moments are especially precious to me because in these moments we are making deposits into the lives of children that will touch generations to come. This is an honor that I treasure for I realize few people are afforded the opportunity to touch the future in this manner.
