Curriculum: I am presently following The Mailbox curriculum and including other Internet sites.
Special features: It is my philosophy to provide a loving, caring and nurturing environment for the children placed in my day care. I hope the children come to think of my day care as a home away from home. I use a theme-based preschool curriculum. In addition, we read, have music and movement, cook, play outdoors and have plenty of time for free play to interact with one another. We occasionally take field trips.
I provide meals and snacks. I am first aid and CPR certified and an active member of the Windham Area Family Child Care Association.
