My name is Melissa and I have been operating my private, Christian dayhome since September 2011. I have a passion for working with children and over 20 years experience in a variety of related capacities, excellent references, current Level C CPR/First Aid, and criminal record check. We are fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
My goal is to provide quality child care in a safe and fun environment that will encourage your child to explore, learn, and use their imagination and support their intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual development. I have 2 children 11 years (girl) and 9 years (boy)!
My dayhome is pet-free and smoke-free. We are a low technology dayhome and as such your child will enjoy a variety of enriching activities including sensory play, baking, crafts, playdates with other dayhomes, outside play, field trips (library, parks, community events, etc), reading, music, nature walks, circle time, letters of the week, pretend play, dress-up and of course free play. Christian values are interwoven into everything we do.
I provide pictures of our daily activities via an app called "brightwheel" so you can have a peek into your child's days and the fun that they have.
Your child's day will be filled with fun and friends in a loving home away from home environment. Your child will be an extension of my family, and will be treated with respect and love.
Note: As of January 2015 I was delighted to welcome my husband (Raymond) on board in a part-time capacity. He drives school bus part-time as well. So now you get 2 providers for the price of 1! It also means fewer days off for appointments, etc!
