My name is Cheryl and as a mother of three wonderful children I understand the need for QUALITY child care. For this reason my family and I decided to open our home to provide this much needed service. I am licensed by the State of Maine and am CPR and First Aid certified. I participate in the USDA food program which ensures the children are having their nutritional needs met while in my care. I believe in teaching through play and providing a comfortably structured environment.
My vision for my child care home is to become a child care and preschool facility. I feel that education is found in a lot of the little things we do daily. I am sure to provide age appropriate educational experiences each and every day. The children participate in circle time daily. We sing songs, read, discuss the date, weather and DANCE! I also use basic American Sign Language daily. ASL aids pre-verbal children to better communicate with the people in their lives, and will also expose the older children to a new language, not to mention the kiddos love to learn it! I also participate in Scholastic during the school season. This gives parents the opportunity to purchase books at a great price and have them hand delivered to you!
For children enrolled I offer occasional Parent Date Night on Saturday evenings for those much needed nights away. During Christmas time I also offer Shopping Saturday, this gives parents some time to prepare for the upcoming holiday. These dates are sent home in a monthly newsletter with any important dates for the next month, some photos of the last months activities, and any other information which will be needed for the next few weeks.
If an educational, family, fun environment is what you are looking for please contact us today!
