#1- We Are a Home AWAY
from Home

Our family childcare program is incorporated into our family home as opposed to being set up in a separate daycare center.  We believe early learning is naturally done best in a comfortable home environment where children can know they are valued.

We know when children are able to form an attachment to a consistent reliable provider they can better focus on learning and building positive relationships with their peers.  We believe a child's primary question each day should be "What can I play or learn today?" not "Who is going to take care of me today?".  When children don't have to worry about this second question, they can better focus on the first!

We want each child to understand they are loved, that God loves them, and that we should be kind to one another. We want each child to know that they are one of a kind, like no one else and have value not because of what they do but because of ​who they are.​​​​​​​

#2- We Believe Affordability and Quality Can be found

Together in Childcare

We work to provide a loving, nurturing, clean, safe environment for children.  One where they can thrive, nurture their natural strengths, build positive self-esteem and relationships, and have lots of fun learning about the world around them.

Our group is small so each child can get the individual attention and care they need. 
Our home only cares for 6 children at a time.

We are Learning! 
Our curriculum is embedded into our daily activities and routines. We focus on emotional awareness, social skills, 
early literacy, preschool concepts and kindergarten readiness.  Preschool activities are voluntary because learning should be fun! 

Our curriculum includes:

*Preschool Activities

*Kindergarten Readiness

*Arts & Crafts

*Music & Dance

*Early Literacy & Storytelling


​*Outdoor Time

*Trips to the Park

*Library Storytime

*Picnic & Lunch Outings​

We are Playing! 

Field trips provide our group new and exciting learning opportunities.  Our ability to be mobile: to go to the park, library storytime, lunch outings, and go on more formal field trips is appreciated by our whole group.

About Laura

I know it's not easy to choose a childcare provider.  I have been through it myself.  I want you to know that caring for children is not just my profession, it is also my passion.  I pride myself on my ability to customized my program to the specific needs of each child I care for.  Doing childcare right and being licensed are important to me.  I don't believe there are any short cuts when it comes to caring for children the right way.  I have over 200 hours in early childhood training and attend classes throughout each year to stay informed and up to date on the best child development and childcare practices.  

I am a happy, personable, reliable, professional childcare provider.  I truly enjoy my work and love spending time with my childcare kiddo's.  My days are filled with smiles, laughter, and joy and ​I know I am blessed to keep company with the beautiful little visitors who have become an extended part of my family and life. 

I love to spend vacations fishing and camping and living in Colorado, the perfect place for both.  My husband and I have been married for 23 memorable years.  We both feel grateful to be able to use our home to make a positive difference in early childhood care and in the lives of the children in our care. 

​​I started my home childcare business in 2009 when our own child's daycare situation was in need of a change.  At the time she was attending a daycare center classroom with 20 children and 1 teacher for every 10 children.  In the span of 9 months she had 3 different teachers.  Between the staff turnover and the teacher to child ratio we knew her needs were not being met.  Soon after this I was asked by one friend to care for her child, and then by another friend to care for his child.  After this we decided to become a licensed childcare home.  Through this I have been able to enrich my child's and others childhood experience and have continued to do so as my own child went off to grade school.
