"The Kids Place" Home Daycare and Preschool is
"A home your child will love"!

I've been in the a family childcare provider since 1990. I operate a Type B Family Daycare Service in the Strongsville/Brunswick area of Ohio. I offer a program that will help each child grow and learn in a safe, homey, loving, nonsmoking environment through a structured, yet flexible, schedule of activities that will prepare them for school in building friendships, academic areas, and appropriate behavior.

My home is set up to accommodate both my family and my daycare. We have a room set up for the preschool ~classroom~ that we use to play, learn and sleep in. I have a large finished basement that is a walkout to my large fenced backyard. We spend time playing in the basement with many age appropriate toys and computer learning. The backyard has a large "Rainbows Swing Set" that the children love playing on. The children also get much enjoyment playing on the driveway with riding toys, basketballs, sidewalk chalk, etc...

The children have a structured and professional preschool program daily in which they do many of the following each week: arts and crafts, songs, recognizing numbers and counting, science, safety; skills, physical education, recognizing letters and their sounds, social skills, and much, much more. The children bring home daily activity papers to share and some have reinforcing ideas that parents can do with their child. Much of our program is hands-on learning.

My program is certified through the State of Ohio and I follow all the laws that apply to a Type B Family Daycare. We stay within the standards of Ohio in that no provider can not care for more than 6 children, however, if they have children of their own and over the age of six they do not count in the ratio. So my group is small and the children get the attention they deserve, the love and encouragement they need, and I strive to help each child become the "best that they can be"!

Quality is the key to any great program for children. I have maintained my "Gold Seal" scoring well above a 5 on the Family Child Care Environment Rating Scale through the "Invest in a Child" or formerly "Care for Kids Program" for the three years I've been involved. I also have my program Nationally Accredited through the National Association For Family Child Care. I also was awarded an "Outstanding Work in Child Care" through Cuyahoga County Jobs and Family Services in 2008. All of these go well above the Type B standards in family child care and assure your child is getting only the best!

I am also on the USDA Food Program and offer the children nutritious meals throughout their time at daycare. They are offered breakfast, lunch, and snack which all meet the USDA guidelines.

I enjoy what I do and working with young children! It is such a rewarding job to watch these youngsters grow.

I love to share!!!

Thanks for taking the time to sign my guestbook!!!
