I started working in childcare while in high school. I've raised three children as a single mom. I am absolutely nuts about kids. I have worked in the church nursery for years including caring for twins and special needs, Down syndrome & autism. I taught 2 to 3 and 4 to 5's in Sunday school for many years. My most recent experience has been for the care of a little boy who was born 2 months early. He is now 21 months old and thriving wonderfully. I enjoy getting down on the floor and playing. I love arts and crafts and story telling with puppets. Infant care: turn care taking routines into "care teaching" opportunities, based on your child's unique needs & developmental level. Activities focus on skills linked to large- and fine-motor development along with cognitive, social-emotional and language development. A simple game of hide-and-seek or peek a boo Read more is an opportunity to encourage memory development. Every day, you will receive a log of your child 's feeding, sleeping, diapering & learning activities. Toddlers: shared learning experiences that stimulate & challenge your child each & every day. Children learn best by having a variety of choices in an organized environment. To include materials & manipulatives as well as planned activities that promote fine & gross-motor skills, receptive & expressive language & intellectual curiosity -- all while nurturing your child's developing sense of self. Listening to stories, singing songs, playing games & doing art projects help develop language & vocabulary skills, as well as movement & cognitive skills. You would also receive a daily log of your child's feeding, sleeping, diapering & learning activities. Preschool: Nursery Rhymes, My Five Senses, pre-writing skills - journaling by pictures. Hands on activities, Learning about science with use of magnets, mirrors, shells etc. Free play & outdoor activities. Kindergarten on: Creative activities that teach both writing & math skills such as counting & sorting. Science activities based on weather/seasons, animals/pets. Lots of free play exploration & outdoor activities.
