In order to do licensed care in my home, all residents have been fingerprinted, had full FBI background checks, medical clearances, and inspections by the Department of Education and the Fire Department.
In-home childcare allows for low child to adult ratios. Your child receives more attention which is adapted to fit your child’s personal needs. Your child will have a unique blend of play and learning activities in a loving home with one main caregiver all the way through into school.
Ms. Bonnie operates Wee People Learning Garden with a kindergarten-readiness preschool program year round, for infants through 5 years old. Rates vary according to the ages of the child. The children are taught through play, games, songs, and process art. Meals and snacks are included.
It has been proven that the growth in a child’s brain the first five years is not only phenomenal, but also crucial. It is during this time that children develop fundamental learning skills, as well as social and emotional skills. The greatest learning takes place through fun and play – with songs, activities, laughter, and friends.
Mr Rodgers said:
“ Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.”
