I will be opening my day care home mid-February 2016. I will provide a safe, fun and friendly home environment. I live in the home where I was raised with 9 siblings and where I raised my son. I have loved being around children my whole life. Besides caring for her own children, my mother did day care for over 35 years. As we got older we helped with our younger siblings and the daycare children. As an adult I was her paid assistant from 1982-1985 until I started my own daycare home which was in business for 1 1/2 years. I am a volunteer at St Peter Church, once a week, teaching Religious Education to 2nd Graders. I was a den mother for several years. I have numerous nieces and nephews. I have worked outside the home at the same company for the last 21 years. I am ready to be back home taking care of children full time, helping them learn through play. I believe children learn through every day activities and do not need to be in a structured ‘school’ setting. That being said, I will be doing story and reading time, music, arts and crafts, games, outdoor play and other learning activities as time allows. I have a large yard and parks nearby. I am in the process of becoming licensed for child care through DCFS. Meals will be provided. I am in walking distance of Harrison Street School.
