My goal is to provide a welcoming, safe, happy and stimulating environment for children where they can learn and grow physically, emotionally, intellectually, and socially at their own pace. I believe children learn through play and benefit from a structured yet flexible schedule. Activities will be offered which stimulate sensory motor development, language development and social interaction. The development of strong self-esteem is also a major goal. We encourage children to try new things, ask questions, explore ideas, and discover themselves. Children will be taught to respect each other, adults, and property. I teach children life skills such as: learning how to share, take turns, following directions, and use words to solve problems. We provide unconditional love and emotional security, a sense of routine, and an opportunity to be creative and playful.
