A Kid's Space

About Our Educators

  • Q. Why did you become an Educator?

    I love working with children and watching them grow and develop. We can all learn a lot from them!
  • Q. What's your favorite part about being an Educator?

    Playing and teaching children something new. I love the look in a child’s eye when they finally figure something out.
  • Q. Do you have any special experience parents should know about?

    I started watching children when I was 14. As I got older, I always looked for families that I could help by providing child care.
  • Q. Anything else parents should know about you or your family?

    I have a 3-month-old baby boy and two older stepkids that are 12 and 14. I also have two little dogs. We love to be outside when the weather permits!

About Our School

  • Q. What's your early childhood education philosophy?

    I believe that children need to learn by playing and being involved in hands-on activities. I will teach them, and then back away a little bit and let them learn independently with the comfort of a close-by adult.
  • Q. What's your school set-up like?

    I have a loving home complete with a playroom, nap room and an extra loft with a comfy couch for quiet time or relaxing with a book.
  • Q. What snacks & meals do you provide?

    I will provide breakfast, lunch and two snacks.
  • Q. Anything else parents should know?

    My program will have shortened hours on Friday, opening at 9:00 a.m. and closing at 3:00 p.m. We have a small playground in the neighborhood that we will walk to for outdoor play. We will go there when the weather permits and even for picnics!

About Our Parent Relationships

  • Q. What do you expect from me as a parent?

    I expect parents to bring things their child may need during the day. I also expect communication and honesty. Parents need to be dependable.
  • Q. Do you encourage visits from parents?

    I do encourage parents to visit every once in a while, it would also be nice if they stay a little bit in the morning the first few days their child attends. This will help with separation anxiety.
