My mission is to provide a quality, safe, nurturing and developmentally challenging environment for children and to stimulate every child's emotional, physical and cognitive development through a balance of child and adult led play.
My program is based off of the following child development principles:
RIE (Resources for Infant Educarers)
I diligently work hard to improve my daycare program by taking college courses, workshops and training in child development/early childhood education and by identifying areas for improvement. Although California does not recently require any type of formal training in family child care I voluntarily seek out educational growth opportunities and use a variety of tools and resources to provide a quality child care program for families. I create my own higher standards for my program.
