Tender Tots

Aletheia McCaskill is a licensed family child care provider in... Baltimore, MD. Aletheia Mccaskill cares for children as young as 12 weeks through 12 years old. About Us: Tender Tots is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. We are committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals. We have created an environment filled with patience towards the understanding of your child's needs. We encourage positive goals and help develop self-esteem and awareness. We have extensive experience with children with special needs including gestational tubing (feeding tube), mild-severe handicaps, apnea monitors, behavior disorders & speech/physical challenges. We welcome outside programs such as Maryland Infant and Toddler Program to aid in the full potential of our children. I'm Aletheia McCaskill. Many call me, "Miss Pooh", an old childhood name & easier for the children to pronounce. I have been married for almost 20 years & the very proud mother of 2 very special young ladies. I have my Bachelor of Science in Information Systems and my Associate of Applied Science in Early Childhood Development, Magna Cum Laude. After 7 years of serving in the private work sector as a computer analyst/programmer, I diligently began serving the child care community. It has been a wonderful journey for the past 17 years. I am an active member of NAFCC (National Association for Family Child Care), SEIU, Local 500-Child Care Division [currently serving as a Leader on Bargaining Committee and as Chairwoman, Baltimore City/County Regional C.O.P.E.], Level 6 of Maryland Child Care Credential, Maryland EXCELS, Certified in Emergency and Disaster Preparedness and I provide support services & child care to local homeless shelters several days a week. I truly believe that it takes a village/community to raise a child. I commend the curious child. Self-discovery and building social skills are as equally important as learning the fundamentals of reading, writing and math. My passion for early child care doesn't stop here at daycare. I love mentoring & my newest adventures are advancing state government policies that pertain to early learning/child development & writing children's books (only in the mental process for now). My philosophy of education is extensive. In the largest sense, I believe education serves many purposes. It builds character & connects us to the unknown. Yes, to some degree, education can lead to financial prosperity. But, the measure of wealth can only be defined by an individual's character. Please send an email for more information.

Montessori Luna Bilingual Day Care

Montessori Luna Bilingual Daycare strives to guide children through... their unique pathway toward their full potential by: Enriching the quality of children educational and developmental pathways of life. Providing a structural environmental designed to promote academic learning within the framework of respect and responsibility. Understanding the commitment to our global community. Creating a nurturing environment that provides a sense of self-worth and independence. The curriculum is taught in English and Spanish. Practical Life: Through the exercises and repetition of “practical” skills, children learn how to complete work from beginning to end by following a sequence of performance steps. These activities include many of the tasks children see as part of the daily life in their home such as buttoning, zipping, setting the table, watering plants, preparing food, arranging flowers, etc. Grace and courtesy presentations help children to understand the practice of culturally appropriate social behaviors in a fun way. Sensorial: The Sensorial materials serve as tools for development. The materials in this area include various activities to teach the children shapes, colors, spatial relationships and logical thinking skills. By touching, seeing, smelling, tasting, listening, and exploring children learn to order and classify the physical properties of their environment. Such activities increase the child’s awareness and provide a repertoire of sensorial experiences through which they will use to perceive the world around them. Language: growth is vital to a child’s development. The Montessori environment is rich in oral language opportunities, allowing the child to experience conversations, stories and songs. Beginning with the sandpaper letters, children link sound and symbol, encouraging the development of written expression and reading skills. At the next level, the children move on to reading comprehension, sentence structure, vocabulary development, and writing skills. Math: materials help the child learn and understand mathematical concepts by working with concrete materials. This work gives children a solid understanding of basic mathematical principles, prepares them for later abstract reasoning, and helps to develop problem-solving capabilities. This area includes a range from number recognition, place value, subtraction, addition and ordinal counting; all the way to multiplication and division. Art: Finger paint, clay and lots of hand on activities will help the child to develop their fine motor skills. Cultural Studies: include geography, biology, botany, zoology, physical science, art and music. These subjects are usually presented to reinforce another concept in the classroom. For example, children learn about people and cultures in other countries alongside their geographical studies. Broadening the scope of their basic studies will offer children an underlying knowledge, overall understanding, and earned appreciation for the world around them. Spanish: As part of a global community, Spanish is taught as a second language. Lessons are delivered in both English and Spanish and children are constantly exposed to folkloric Spanish music.
