More.... We have a daily schedule / routine that includes physical activity, reading/other learning activities, and group activities. Interaction and learning good social skills are very important to learn at a young age and we focus on that here in this small group setting. Enrolling in a daycare program is also excellent way for your children to develop friends of all ages that they can learn and play with throughout the day. We also have 2 friendly cats in our home. I am a licensed provider so all children in my care are up to date on shots, my children/pets are too. I am certified in infant, child, and adult first aid & CPR. I am also a member of the USDA food program. Learning good nutrition is so important to do from the start. My home is totally baby proofed, soft foam blocks in the main play area and gated the off limits areas. We have lots of toys to enjoy and encourage a general love of learning in our home by reading often, playing games, puzzles, draw/color, and discuss the days events. We also like to stay active: dancing, ball games, push toys/carts, parachute time, etc. There is a play ground right across the street from my home and many nearby. We also have our own mini soft play area in our basement complete with ball pit. When possible we spend time outside enjoy stroller / wagon rides, neighborhood walks, water table play, riding in our cars or push bikes and possibly going to the spray ground - anything outdoors, even going to the store or a car ride we make an adventure! I have been babysitting children as early as I can remember. I am a college graduate with a BA in Psychology. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me, or call me. I have excellent references! Thanks! Rana

We thought a small home daycare environment suited our baby boy better since he was cared by a nanny and wasn’t ready for a big center. After visiting many home daycare facilities in this region, we chose Ms. Rana’s place since it is not located in a basement, has a big yard, and is not over-crowded. Our baby boy was with Ms. Rana from one and half to two and half and he loves her! Ms. Rana has lots of experience in child-caring and lots of... more

Rana is fun loving, down to earth and takes good care of our 6 month old daughter. She is great at working with our LO on developmental goals, sleep schedules and somehow gets her to eat like a champ! I feel very comfortable and at ease leaving my daughter in her care. When I pick her up, Rana always has a detailed summary of what my LO was up to during the day, which is much appreciated. As new parents, Rana has always provided us with helpful... more
