Colleen’s Bio

Hi my name is Colleen, I have 2 children of my own ages 6 yrs old and 4 1/2 yrs old.  If you are looking for someone to care for your child as you care for them, you just found her. I am enrolling 1-2 children in my at home daycare at this time, and I have daily rates. I am a dedicated professional who loves to work with children.  The following is what you can expect from my daycare:
Supervision by a highly-trained, certified professional.
·        I earned an associate's degree in early childhood education from
William Rainey Harper College in 2005.  I have been supervising children of all daycare ages for 11 years in professional daycare settings.  I am committed to providing affordable daycare services at my home that exceed the quality of more expensive options.        
 
A safe and healthy environment.
·        Through the use of safety gates, outlet plugs, door latches, age-appropriate and non-toxic materials, I am looking out for your child's safety.  Floors, surfaces, toys, and other items of contact will be cleaned regularly.  Lunch, as well as a morning and afternoon snack will be provided.   
   
Enrichment activities tailored to suit your child's needs.
·     Reading activities using our generous assortment of books.
·     Counting, sorting, and explorative activities.  
·     Art and craft projects using non-toxic supplies.
·     A generous assortment of age-appropriate toys are available. 
Children are welcome to bring their favorite toys from home.
·     Exercise activities for motor development.  I have a large backyard that adjoins a forest preserve, providing ample space
      for your child to play. 
·     I have a DVR and am willing to record currently available programs for your child to view during the day.
·     I have a DVD player and am willing to show any movies that you provide or that I have available. 
·     Please inquire about my seasonal activities.
