Welcome

Welcome to my daycare, Inquiring Minds Daycare!

Inquiring Minds Daycare is a safe and happy place for children where they can learn and grow at their individual pace. Children of all ages in my childcare are given opportunities to learn through experiences with stories, songs/music, art, science, dramatic play, sensory materials, number and letter activities and the outdoors. Even children younger than 2 years can participate in the above activities so our activities are tailored to the interest, abilities, as well as the ages of the children in my care. I believe children learn through play and benefit from a structured, yet flexible schedule. Children will be taught to respect each other, adults, pets, and property. My goal is to teach your child to Communicate, Negotiate, and Problem Solve. Every day I will offer your child the opportunity to engage in various activities to support their growth.

Your child will have the freedom to learn in a safe, clean, loving, home environment where they are challenged at their appropriate age level.

I absolutely love being with children. It is very rewarding to watch young children develop and learn. I will strive to provide a safe, comfortable, stimulating, fun, educational environment in my home with a semi-structured, yet flexible day plan.
