Virginia Hills Bilingual Daycare

About Me Founded in 2008, we offer a professional, secure, and fun child care program with an overall environment filled with love, learning and... respect. One of my greatest passions is working with children. The ability to help, play, share with, and teach a child fills me with great satisfaction and joy. I am extremely proud to be a provider and be able to offer a child in their first years all the love, care, and intellectual stimulation that a child need in those first crucial years. My background in child care began here in the United States back in 1998 working for a Catholic Church Day Care (St. Gabriel’s). I then founded my own licensed family daycare. During all this time I attended different trainings and obtained my CDA (Child Development Associate National Credentials), my MAT (Medication Administration Training) and my CPR/First Aid Administration. I am a member of NAFCC (National Association for Family Child Care). Child Care Curriculum My goal at Virginia Hills Bilingual Daycare is that every child learns through educative play. That is why each child is offered different experiences that stimulate their social, emotional and cognitive motor skills. Our daily activities include: free play time, structured play time, large and small motor skill activities, story time, arts and crafts, music and dance, outdoor activities (weather permitting), science, languages, and much more. All these activities depend on the ages and needs of each child in preparation for kindergarten and young lives. My meal plan program includes healthy options and is in accordance with the USDA food program. Your child would receive individual and professional attention, filled with love and respect, where every child would feel as if they were in a family setting. Call us; we would love to serve you!
