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!

Our Philosophy

Welcome to A CHILD’s Haven!  My name is Sara Fink and I have been working with children for over14 years.  I completed one year of the Child Care and Development program at Fox Valley Technical College.  I worked in a group center for 4 years and then decided to become a stay-at-home mom to my 4 beautiful children.  After 10 years of being home with my children, I decided to take on a preschool teacher position at my local church when my youngest daughter was 5.  I loved every minute of it!  With my youngest about to head of into Kindergarten, I knew I would miss the pitter patter of little feet in my home.  I decided to follow my dream of opening my own Family Child Care in my home.

A CHILD’s Haven is a state licensed facility serving children 6 weeks to 12 years of age.  We are based on the philosophy that all children, given the chance, can achieve great things!  It is my goal to meet the developmental needs of all children in my care.  I will provide experiences that enrich and enhance each child’s cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, and creative development.  Throughout the day, each child will have opportunities to create and imagine, explore their environment, learn problem solving and personal interaction skills, and learn concepts through a first hand experience.

Finding quality care for your child with someone you trust is not an easy quest.  I strive to offer that haven for both you and your child.  Watching children grow and develop who they are is such an amazing experience.  I look forward to caring for your child and sharing every amazing moment with you!
