About

OPENINGS: We have a short-term opening for any age until June 20th, 2021.
Hello, I run a state licensed, pet free, smoke free and family friendly home daycare. The house is very convenient to reach since it is right on Lee Hwy. I have twelve years of experience in child care and have been running my own day care facility for the last two years. We are open from 7:30am to 5:30pm and care for children 6 weeks to 6 years of age. For the safety of the children the daycare is peanut free environment. The children in my care are provided healthy and nutritious meals including breakfast, morning snack, lunch and evening snack. The experienced and certified staff works hard to provide a safe, nurturing environment for the kids in our care. The staff is CPR/First Aid and MAT certified. Our focus is to maximize each child’s learning potential in all areas: cognitive, social, emotional and physical. The home has large areas for the children to actively engage in learning and playing. There are lots of toys for children of all ages to explore and learn. We incorporate fun activities including painting, arts and crafts, free play, music, reading books, educational projects, etc. Our focus is to give each child early head start in education therefore a parent gets a homecare facility with corporate daycare’s curriculum and experience.

We've had a wonderful experience ever since we enrolled our child. The teachers truly go out of their way to make sure that the child and the parents are at ease. They are so engaged and invested in the childs development and growth and are just as excited as the parents about the childs achievements and milestones. They are so patient and understanding in working with the children and work with each child to help them grow and thrive. Their... more

Our son loves going to “school” and gets so excited when it’s time to leave for this provider's place. We feel fortunate to have found such a qualified and caring provider and could not ask for better!

My child loves going to daycare here. Just at the mention of it he gets really excited and knows that he’s going to have an awesome day. She fills the days with activities that keeps my child mind engaged and keeps me updated throughout the day on what he is doing.

This is our first child so we were new to the whole process of looking for a child care outside of family. Several things stood out as we were checking this place: 1) basement is large and has a lot of space compared to others; 2) children look happy and that was a good indicator; 3) the provider is on top of things. We enrolled our son when he was 17 months and he adjusted quickly. Our son has been here for 11 months and counting and he loves... more

We cannot express how grateful we are with this provider for taking such a good care of our daughter since she was only 5 months old. We were looking for a place with a homey feel, and this home daycare has gone above and beyond our expectations. After almost 2 years we can confirm that our little one feels at home when she is at the daycare, she is welcomed every morning with a huge smile and she runs inside as happy as she can be. This... more

We heard nothing but good things about this daycare before our daughter started there, but our expectations were still far exceeded. Our little girl is always excited to go to daycare, and that’s the true test in our eyes!

I love the care that my son received at this daycare. My son has developed in many ways since he’s joined this early learning program. At the age of two, he knows his colors, days of the week, counts to 30, ABC’s and knows numerous nursery rhyme songs. The team is very efficient & courteous and the daycare is very clean. They work very hard and really care about all of the children. I highly recommend this early learning daycare.

If you are looking for a loving and attentive daycare, look no further. My son has been with this provider since he was about seven months. She is incredibly communicative with parents, caring, assertive, and pays attention to detail. She gives a detailed written report everyday, has a warm and loving environment with lots of toys, and provides the children with the special attention they deserve. She greets us each day with a smile and loves to... more

My daughter started here just before her one year birthday. She absolutely loves it! She gets exited to head to school to see her teachers and friends of all ages. She has progressed developmentally due to this provider. Highly recommended. Willing to be contacted for any inquiries.

This provider and her assistants are wonderful with the children. Our son was with her when I went back to work and she cared for him as we would have. It was so nice to have someone we trusted caring for our son. She worked with us as we transitioned to solid foods. She is an excellent care giver and we would have kept our son with her if we hadn't had the opportunity to have him with our older ones.

My husband & I had moved twice in a little over a year. We had gotten so close with our former day care employees that we were apprehensive when changing our son's routine. Liam warmed up to the providers upon their first meeting. With just the perfect amount of structure and play time, he has learned and has grown so much. His vocabulary, letter & number recall has tripled, and he receives wonderful meals & snacks. My picky eater has tried and... more

My daughter started going to this day care since she was 9 months old and she loves it. It provides a warm and friendly environment. Ms. S follows strict county rules. She makes kids do weekly projects, has daily circle time and takes good care of kids. She is very prompt in sending daily updates to parents. I like when she sends photos and videos of some of my daughter's beautiful moments. I would definitely recommend this day care to anyone... more

I would recommend this daycare to anyone! My super shy 2 year old son was a tough customer. He would cry when we would leave him with anyone! When it was time to start daycare, we wanted to ensure that he was in a smaller, more personalized environment so he could get the attention he needed while making the transition into full time child care. The provider took the time to meet my son where he was at. She taught him his ABCs and 123s,... more

My baby has been at this daycare for 10 months, since he was 4 months old. This home daycare provides a warm and friendly environment for all the kids. The provider not only reads to my baby, teaches him sign language, and works on art projects, she also teaches all kids good behavior. She strictly follows County rules and regulations, and keeps me informed about my son's daily activities. We are very happy with this home daycare.
