Educational Philosophy

Playing to Learn

My goal for children is to learn the importance and practice of manners, teach and show compassion and empathy, and learn to cooperate with others through play, eating, and organized activities in order to develop respect and care amongst peers.

Play Based Learning

I believe that children learn best through exploratory activities and discovery because children are natural learners.  Play based learning encourages creativity, problem-solving, and self-guided learning.  

My childcare setup encourages a variety of play that is age-appropriate.  Sensory experiences, pretend play, and music are used to encourage children to continually learn through play at their own pace.  


Academics are infused within these play based learning opportunities.  Children will learn to see math, language, and science in their world around them.


A daily and weekly routine gives time for all ages to participate in their own learning at their own pace with the comfort of consistency and individual care.


Learning Groups

Everybody Learns!

Infant (Age 0-12 months)

Tummy time, soft block play, music, sensory activities, sitting up to walking training, reading image exploration, and sleep training are used to develop infants from their phase of long sleeping to walking.

Tiny Tots (Ages 1-2)

Discovery & exploration is fostered by variety of toys, puzzles, books, and weekly themed sensory learning activities.  Use of music and art each day guide children to increase vocabulary and motor skills.  

Tot School (Ages 2-4)

Building literacy and self-awareness is increased through group play with peers and sensory activities and dramatic play.  Art, music & movement, discovery stations, and gymnastics prepare children to continue to explore their world and prepare them for academics in kindergarten.
