Ms. Mary

Play-Based Learning

I've always cherished being around little ones and encouraging them to learn while playing. My own children grew up around my home daycare and have gone into the education field, as well! You could say I was born to care for kiddos! My favorite thing about caring for children is that they are all different. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 30 years of experience. People have said that I create an environment that is nurturing and engaging. I focus on learning through play, and I especially love to sing and dance with them. I’m proud when I think about all the children I've taught and watched grow. That's what makes this work so special.

Ms. Jill

Play-Based Learning

I started working with children as an early childhood educator in a home-based daycare 35 years ago, and I have been caring for children ever since. Opening my own child care program in my home gave me the opportunity to create the nurturing, happy environment that I think is so important. I especially love to sing and dance with them, but the truth is that so many parts of the day and the week bring me a lot of joy. Through it all, I focus on learning through play. One of the best parts of working with children is that they all need love and care. The work is incredibly rewarding, especially when I think about all the children I've helped grow and learn. It's such a gift to guide the children in my program as they grow.

As a mother of two grown children and one little tyke with decades of professional experience in the medical field, I can tell you that my priority is a safe place for little ones to learn and play and grow! I'm so happy to be offering loving child care in my neighborhood. I started working with children as a child care professional in a home-based daycare 25 years ago, and I have been caring for children ever since. Opening my own child care program in my home gave me the opportunity to create the welcoming, friendly environment that I think is so important. I especially love to watch them express themselves, but the truth is that so many parts of the day and the week bring me a lot of joy. Through it all, I focus on academic and social readiness. One of the best parts of working with children is that they start to show you their little personalities. The work is incredibly rewarding, especially when I think about all the children I've helped grow and learn. It's such a gift to guide the children in my program as they grow.
