Thinking Ahead

January 19, 2010

We interview families in winter for openings the following fall.

Please contact Maria at maria.k.west@gmail.com if you are interested in more information, in coming for a visit and interview, or in being on our prospective families list. Thanks!

We have a second, newer, but still out of date website to take us into the future. I’m not doing so well keeping up our online presence, but hope what we have will be helpful to you. If you would like to check out our second site, you will find it under construction at:¬†https://wordpress.com/page/westfamilydaycarecom.wordpress.com/78

Program Information

January 28, 2009

Our program is play and project based with a focus on relationships. We currently have four caregiver/teachers, two lead teachers with many years of experience, who were formerly certified early childhood and elementary teachers, and two new assistant teachers who bring fresh energy to our program. Our group has ten children and two caregivers/teachers at a time. We primarily serve children aged two to five, although we include older children and teens, including children who home school, others who come after school, during school vacations, and as interns. Most of our children attend full days, 8:30 to 5, three to five days per week. We currently operate year round.

If you are looking for a small group setting for your child, where your child will be known and able to follow his/her interests, develop at his/her own pace, and be with children of mixed ages in a relaxed, nurturing, creative environment, we would love to meet you. We offer a healthy vegetarian breakfast, lunch, and snack, a balance of child and teacher directed experiences, lots of outdoor time, and a warm and cozy environment. We have lots of books, building materials, art, science, and cooking supplies, games, puzzles, and writing materials. We are a short walk to several great parks, convenient to public transportation,and are proud of our welcoming community of families, many who walk or bike to day care.
