Age for group family day care:
Licensed capacity of 14 children, with no more than 10 children under school age, of these 10 children, a combined total of no more than 4 children shall be infants and toddlers. Of these 4 children, no more than 3 children shall be infants.
Philosophy: I believe every child deserves a safe, fun and loving home during the day. Parents need to be able to work without worrying about their child/children. That is what I as a provider offer each family who enters my home. I help the children work on their social and emotional skills, manners and making sure they are being respectful to all their friends. Children learn so many things through play.
What do I offer that is unique: My passion for providing quality child care is apparent in the love, patience and compassion I display to all the children in my care. I am fortunate to have a husband who supports me and shows his love to all the children also. My belief even after 30 years of being a child care provider is, "A child does not have to be perfect to be loved, every child is different in his or her own way and should be loved for who they are." We are happy to have been able to open our home to so many wonderful families through the years.
Parent recommendation: "Jeri fosters an atmosphere of love, friendship, and learning in her home and I couldn't be happier to have her care for my children!" Tamra Gilbertson
