PICS (tripod.com) TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA, OF WHAT THEIR PLAYING AND CREATIVITY ARE LIKE.
I promote learning from creativity and socialization. Music/Dance, Reading, Art, Building, Sharing, Caring....When the
age and moments are right i work with the children individually on numbers and letters, so that it is more naturally
included in their day to day routines versus a forced learning period. You have to catch children during their natural desire
to learn during these ages for memory retention.
With the day to day sanitation needs in a daycare and the
in ability to find Lysol out there, I have done tons of research to learn about what others are doing out there. My cruise
line recently put out a memo on the product they will be using and i learned it's pretty easy to make. Salt, Water and Electricity!
Of course I went to Amazon to find the machine that does this. But it's safe to eat and destroys viruses and bacteria alike.
I am tagging the machine I bought as well in case you would like one for your homes as well, since Lysol is a long time coming....
Now a little about
me: I remember worrying daily when my oldest was in daycare: is she happy? Does she really like them?
Is she safe? Did the daycare provider stay up too late last night? Will they give her something to drink when she's thirsty?
Will they force her to eat what she does not like? Will they discipline her harshly? Will they make her nap longer than she
needs? My heart was left with my child each day. I always checked the daycare out before enrolling,but with my child so young it was impossible to truly know what her day was like. I promise the children
in my care that I will keep them safe, love them as my own, treat them and their wishes with respect, and gently guide them
when they make mistakes. I will encourage play, creativity, independence, sharing, empathy, teamwork, and learning. I promise
the parents of my children that they can know without a doubt their children are being cared for in an environment that will
help their children grow into happy, healthy, and confident young adults!
An important factor to consider when choosing daycare is the type of learning style and overall
philosophy of the facility.
THAT ALL CHILDREN ARE INDIVIDUALS, EACH CHILD LEARNS AND DEVELOPS AT A DIFFERENT RATE. I TRY TO AID THEIR DEVELOPMENT ON
AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. PEOPLE LEARN THRU 3 METHODS: DOING, READING, SEEING AND A COMBINATION OF ALL 3. YOUR CHILD WILL
NAP AS NEEDED INDIVIDUALLY AS MOST CHILDREN HAVE VARYING SLEEP SCHEDULES. CHILDREN WILL LEARN BASIC CONCEPTS PENDING ON THE
NEEDS AND AGE OF THE CHILD: SHARING, CARING, CRAWLING, WALKING ETC. TABLE MANNERS, EATING AT THE TABLE. NO JUMPING IN CHAIRS,
ETC./ SAFE PLAY PRACTICES. POTTY TRAINING WILL COMMENCE WHEN THE CHILD SHOWS AN INTEREST AND AFTER YOU HAVE BEGUN THE PRACTICES
IN YOUR HOME. KIDS MOVIES WILL ALWAYS BE AVAILABLE, HOWEVER I FIND THAT MOST KIDS WILL ONLY STOP OCCASIONALLY TO VIEW THEM
THE REST OF THEIR TIME IS SPENT PLAYING. WE DO SOME READING, DANCING TO MUSIC, OUTSIDE PLAY AS WELL.
OUT IS USED FOR DISCIPLINE, TYPICALLY ONE MINUTE/AGE OF CHILD.
THE BASIS OF MY DAYCARE
IS OPEN PLAY THOUGH, AND AIDING THE CHILD IN THEIR DEVELOPMENT AS SEEN, AS NEEDED.
IT IS NOT THE PURPOSE OF MY DAYCARE, TO TEACH AS IN PRE-SCHOOL
MY KIDS LEARN HOW TO BE THEIR OWN INDIVIDUALS, INDEPENDENT, CONFIDENT, MAKING THEIR OWN DECISIONS, CORRECTLY. IF
LOOKING FOR A PRE SCHOOL ATMOSPHERE I MAY NOT BE RIGHT FOR YOU, BUT IF LOOKING FOR A PLACE FOR YOUR CHILD TO HAVE
FUN, MEET FRIENDS, AND GET INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION VS. GROUP ATTENTION, I'M YOUR DAYCARE PROVIDER.
of my children have gone on to pre-school and been complimented on having the communication level of a 5yr old)
* AGE APPROPRIATE EDUCATION- YEAR PRIOR TO KINDERGARTEN YOUR CHILD WILL PRACTICE WRITING THEIR ABC'S AND NUMBER'S
ON WORKSHEETS, SENT HOME DAILY DURING THE REGULAR SCHOOL YEAR IN AN EFFORT TO PREPARE THEM FOR THEIR SCHOOL ROUTINES. SCHOOL
APPROPRIATE BEHAVIORS ARE ALSO EMPHASIZED.
click for link to bev bos Heres an excerpt from
the Preface from the Authors Thirty years of working and playing attention to young children and their families has nudged
the two of us to express our concern about environments for childhood. Have we gone too far past remembering how to care for
our young children? Have we tumbled over the edge? Children are spending their early years in habitats designed for adults
instead of spaces of places that honor and respect the needs of growing, learning, exploring children. Cities, towns, houses,
condos, apartments, parks, streets, malls, school and most public places are planned and built for adults. The needs of children
are sacrificed. . . . We must advocate for places where children wonder, discover, imagine, construct and learn by trial-and-error
so that from their experiences they can develop their own framework of knowledge and firm sense of self. We hope to strengthen
your commitment to children and to support their right to play.
SOME THOUGHTS ON CHOOSING
YOUR CHILDCARE OPERATOR.....
THERE ARE THOSE WHO DO DAYCARE BECAUSE THEY TRULY CARE TO ENSURE KIDS ARE SAFE AND HAPPY
AND THERE ARE THOSE WHO SIMPLY DO IT FOR THE MONEY OR SO THEY CAN STAY AT HOME WITH THEIR KIDS.
ASK IN YOUR INTERVIEWS QUESTIONS LIKE: HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SITTING? WHAT ARE YOUR EMPLOYMENT PLANS FOR THE FUTURE? WHY
HAVE YOU CHOSEN TO DO DAYCARE FOR A LIVING? ON THIS WEBSITE I HAVE A LIST OF QUESTIONS THAT THE DIVISION OF HEALTH AND SENIOR
SERVICES IN CHARGE OF CHILDCARE GIVERS IN MISSOURI HAS FOR YOU TO ASK: ON THE REQUIREMENTS THAT MUST BE MET PAGE IN THE BOTTOM
RIGHT CORNER, CLICK ON MY ANSWERS AND YOU WILL GET THE QUESTIONS, THEY SUGGEST YOU ASK ALSO.
SOMEONE IS PLANNING ON STAYING IN THE BUSINESS AND HAS ACTUALLY THOUGHT THEIR DECISION THRU IN THEIR CAREER CHOICE THEY SHOULD
HAVE GOOD ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS. THEY WILL LIKELY NOT QUIT ON YOU IN 3 WEEKS TO 6 MONTHS. SOME PEOPLE HAVE THE PATIENCE
FOR THIS JOB AND SOME WOULD LIKE TO BUT FIND OUT THEY DON'T AND YA DON'T WANT TO WIND UP HAVING TO SWITCH SITTERS DOWN THE
LINE AS IT STRESSES YOUR CHILD AND YOU.
CHOOSING YOUR CHILDCARE PROVIDER IS LIKE CHOOSING
YOUR SOUL MATE - THIS PERSON WILL BE EXAMPLE SETTING DAILY ROUTINE AND CHARACTERISTICS FOR YOUR CHILD DURING 8-12 HOURS OF
THE DAY 5 OUT OF 7 DAYS OF THE WEEK. YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO KEEP SKIPPING FROM ONE SITTER TO THE NEXT. CHILDREN NEED CONSISTENCY
TO KNOW THEY ARE SAFE.
JUST A FEW THOUGHTS TO HELP YOU IN YOUR DECISION MAKING FOR YOUR

AGES BIRTH - 1 YEAR
HOLDING SPOTS FOR INFANTS DOES REQUIRE A DOWN PAYMENT WHICH YOU RECEIVE
BACK ON YOUR 1ST 4 WEEKs. Sorry but this policy is necessary to ensure my families budget is not impacted.
When available, I do accept infants.
Keep in mind, the state
licensing requirements enable me to only have 2 children under the age of Two. If i have openings in this age group it will
be announced on THIS PAGE.
My home does have the Ultra Violet lighting in the Furnace which
eliminates I am told about 75% of the germs in the air.
All infant supplies are supplied
by the parent, therefore the price does not change for this age group.
One of the specialties
I offer for infants is a tracking chart, upon request only.

Should the State of Mo decide that facemasks are mandatory. (To date these are not required in the Family
Home Daycares.) You will have to purchase and maintain those. As a business owner, I will not be responsible for the purchase
nor maintenance of facemasks. This is too huge of a liability risk. This daycare business follows the Rules and Regulations
set forth by the Department of Health and Senior Services of the State of Missouri.
