Preschool and Kindergarten Readiness:

With ABC's and 123's we love learning and getting ready for Kindergarten! I understand and appreciate that each child learns at their own pace. My preschool curriculum is play and song based with fun in mind. I want kids to have so much fun they don't even realize the milestones they are reaching in my care. Through repetition and songs kids in my care memorize the alphabet sounds, planets, days of the week and months, and even counting by 10's to 100. With puppets and copying my movements I have the kids laughing and smiling during circle time. During reading time I bring the books to life with different voices and silly noises! My small group allows me to have more one on one with each child in my care. I strive to have children ready to go to Kindergarten and being able to:

  • Identify most upper and lower case letters.
  • Make most letter/sound matches.
  • Counting to 30 and identify numerals 1-10 in random order.
  • Be able to write first name with first letter upper case and remaining letters lower case.
  • ​Use finger to accurately touch count items to ten.
  • Identify basic geometric shapes (triangle, circle, square, rectangle, oval, star, rhombus (diamond) and heart)
  • Know basic colors (red, blue, green, yellow, orange, purple, black, white, brown, pink)
  • Fun art projects, and group games
  • ​Knows concepts of print (front and back of book, which page comes first, track words left to right).
  • ​Be able to rhyme words.
  • ​Retells simple stories in sequence.
  • When given a word (“man”) and a new beginning sound (/f/), creates the familiar word (“fan”)
  • Listening and following directions
  • Learning to share and table manners
  • Weekly and monthly fun themes like dinosaurs, rainbows, occupations, snowflakes and Dr Seuss

Frequently Asked Questions:


What is included in your daily rate and how what are your rates? My daily rate varies depending on the age of the child and how many days of care are needed. Please call for a quote. My rates include all food (except baby food and special diets) all preschool and learning activities. 


How do you discipline children in your care? I do the love and logic method. I try and give choices and give consequences for the child's choice. I like to do positive reinforcement whenever possible. If that does not work than I do give time outs one minute per age of the child if needed. I talk to the child on their level and work with them on changing negative behavior. Consistency and clear expectations helps children to know what is expected of them and to have a good experience at my house. I am very patient and kind and have worked successfully with a variety of children's personalities. 


Do you require Immunizations? Yes, all the children in my care, including my own, need to be immunized to state standards.


What deposit do you require to start care? I require a two week deposit that goes towards the last two weeks of care and a signed contract to hold a spot in my childcare. Before care starts I require all doctor's papers, immunizations, and packet that I give you to be returned to me. 


What is your potty training policyI am here to help a child potty train but ultimately the responsibility is the parents. I do not charge extra while a child is learning to use the potty. I require children to be accident free during the days for two weeks before coming to childcare in underwear. This is for sanitation purposes. I encourage children to use the toilet when potty training but it is more the child communicating with me versus me asking them. If accidents are consistently occurring, I require the child to come in a pull up until they are accident free for a time. Many parents in my care have had success with a weekend potty training method that I am happy to share with you. 


What are your vacation and holiday policies? I take the 11 standard holidays off which are paid. Any other vacation days or personal days that I take you are not responsible to pay for as I know you need to find alternate care. If you go on vacation or your child is sick payment is still due. You pay for the spot whether used or not. I do require that you have a few people who can do back up care for you. I am happy to help find people if needed. I give LOTS of notice when I am going to be taking a day or week off.


What is your TV policy? We watch a 30 minute learning video a day and I allow non-nappers to watch a show during nap time so the other children can sleep with out it being too loud. 


Where do children nap? I have 2 rooms and a huge closet that is separate from the main play area that allows everyone to have a good napping experience.
