State Licensed in-home child care provider for toddler, preschooler and kindergarten age children.
It is the policy of the Colorado Department of Human Services (“the State Department”) to promote and encourage child care in environments that contribute to the safety, health, protection and well-being of children.
To verify compliance with standards intended to ensure such an environment, the State Department requires thorough and ongoing appraisals of child care facilities, persons working in the child care profession, and the nature of care provided.
A family child care home is required to be licensed when care is provided to two or more unrelated children at any one time.
Our child care philosophy for in-home day care is that it should be a safe, clean, stimulating and fun environment with an as close to home feel as possible.
This child care philosophy encourages learning to be fun and entertaining.
Colorado law and state regulations do not exclude child care programs from licensing just because traditional religious values or philosophy are an integral part of the child care program.
We are located in the beautiful, family friendly Beacon Point subdivision, in SE Aurora, just a short distance east of Southlands Mall or the 80016 zip code. We care for a small ratio of children on a daily basis, so the children in our care get quality individualized attention.
Our location is easy to get to for drop off and pick up close by the new King Soopers on East Smoky Hill Road in the 80016 zip code area.
This area also includes many different parks that are ideal for visits for your little one to have fun and burn off some excess energy with fresh air and good wholesome play exercise.
Our hours are from 7 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., and should a parent need alternate hours of care, we would try to accommodate them, if possible.
As a licensed provider, we are CPR and Universal Precautions Certified, Medication Administration Certified, and we partake in over the 15 Hours of Continuing Education required by the State of Colorado annually.
Provided daily are a healthy breakfast, lunch and drinks, including two snacks.
Our activities include free play, dramatic play, arts and crafts, games, books and puzzles, dancing to music, and quiet time from 1-3 p.m.
Preschool activities include the study of numbers, letters, days of the week, months of the year as well as sight words for learning to read, in our daily schedule.
