Hi! My name is Christine, and I remember what it was like to be in your shoes...searching for nurturing, quality care for my children, who are now grown adults. I know how hard it is to trust that your child is in a healthy, loving and enriching environment. I found myself concerned and disappointed with the kind of care my children were receiving and left my legal secretarial position to start a daycare of my own. I provided the same loving, attentive, enriching care and well-balanced meals to the children in my daycare as I did my own children. They were like part of the family.
I recently started another daycare for a similar reason...so that I could continue to care for my live-in grandson, Luke (3). I have another boy in my care, Tristan (4), and our friendly yellow Labrador Retriever, Kenzie (12). In order to provide the best care for each child and allow for more activities, I would prefer to limit my daycare to 4 children...which allows 2 available openings.
I live on Waterbury Road near Madison and have a fenced yard with a lot of fun and educational toys to enjoy...inside and out. Sometimes we go to Madison Park to play on the swings and slides or go to the library (with parent permission, of course). This past summer, we spent a lot of time swimming in the pool (which I filled with warm water for their comfort), sliding on the Little Tikes slide, played in the Little Tikes house, on the tire swing, rode the riding toys, played catch and kicked balls to each other.
I am available from 6 am until 6 pm Monday through Friday. Unfortunately, I am not able to accept day care vouchers at this time because I am not licensed or certified; however, my rate is very reasonable and the children are in a safe and smoke-free environment.
My fee is $25/day ($125/week) for full-time children 2 years and up and $30/day ($150/week) for infants from 6 weeks up to 2 years.
Please call to discuss your needs and/or set up an interview. I promise that your little one will be very happy and safe! Best of luck to you in your search for the best possible care for your little one. Thank you for your consideration and make it a great day!
