My approach to child care.

Play based learning

Play based learning with Montessori influence. Every moment in a child’s life is a learning opportunity.

Focus on happiness

I focus on safety, happiness, independence and emotional regulation among with learning of discipline.

Love for kids

I treat the children like my own because I believe every child needs to be loved, accepted and welcomed with their unique personality.

Love the outdoors.

Daily walks and a big back yard equipped with toys that promote physical development and gross motor skills.
