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!

Halloween fun






 There are so many fun activities to do for Halloween.  I have recently discovered these magnet pages you can use on a cookie sheet, fridge, or magnet board. (I picked up one of the drip pans from Walmart and attached it to my wall with velcro strips).  I found a couple of magnet sheets here: http://www.makinglearningfun.com/themepages/PumpkinMagnetPages.htm

I also created a simple pumpkin magnet sheet that can be used to create jack-o-lanterns using the circular magnets.  You can find my make a face pumpkin and download it for free here: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Make-a-pumpkin-face-magnet-sheet


 Today we finished up our adorable little spiders.  We painted the styrofoam balls yesterday and they were not quite dry in the afternoon so we added the eyes and legs today.  P loves his little spider!








 I will post more of our Halloween activities and crafts over the next couple of weeks.  Stop by again soon to see what we have been up to!
