Read to your child every day!

What sets A CHILD's Haven apart?

  • ALWAYS SOMETHING NEW AND EXCITING! (I have so many fun and exciting plans.....I can't wait to get started! Never a dull moment around here!!! :)
  • CHILD DIRECTED THEMES AND ACTIVITIES (your child's interests and needs will determine upcoming themes and lessons)
  • A READING TREE! What better place to read a book then a welcoming willow tree?
  • ASQ questionnaires for all children birth to age 6. Ages and Stages Questionnaires are great tools to determine if your child's development is on schedule.
  • ON SITE FIELD TRIPS (a big yard to explore mixed with fun props leads to endless "field trip" possiblities!)
  • THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS! (The learning environment and structure with the small group size and lots of individual attention)
  • SPECIAL NEEDS EXPERIENCE (I have children with Type 1 diabetes and Celiac disease so if your children are dealing with these or other health issues be assured that their needs will be closely monitored!)
  • THIS BLOG! (The purpose of this blog is to share our daily news and activities with parents of children in the CHILD's Haven family. In addition....a place for providers to share and inspire each other to offer the highest quality of care for families everywhere!

There was an old woman who swallowed a......


I would like you to meet our new friend....The little old woman.  I think she turned out so cute!  I need to collect the other "Old woman who swallowed a...." books and the items she swallowed to make our new activity even more fun!  
I have to admit I didn't come up with this idea; but I found it on pinterest and made my own version.  It took me awhile to find the right trash can.  I think she is pretty cute :)

Refreshing aroma in our home!

Hello!  This post isn't really childcare related; but it is beneficial to a childcare program!

I am not a big purchaser of scented candles or sprays; but I received a free product coupon as a bzzagent and I tried out the Glade Expressions spray and oil diffuser and I love it!  What a simple and effortless way to add a nice aroma to our home and childcare program.  The oil diffuser is so easy to use and it will continue to fill my home with a light aroma for a month (that is what the package claims...so we will see if it does truly last for a month).  I love the Cotton and Italian Mandarin!  I picked that scent up in the spray but I think I will need to get it in the oil diffuser next!  I have the Lavender and Juniper breeze in the oil diffuser and it is a light relaxing scent that is filling my home.

If you would like a coupon I would be happy to share one with you and let you enjoy the great scents that Glade Expressions has available.  Just give me a bzz and I can deliver a coupon to you!
