Learn, Explore and Grow
(Birth - 18 Months)
Our Infants are exposed to infinite amounts of cuddle and tummy time. The infant program was created to stimulate your baby cognitively through personalized daily routines that include physical development and health, language, literacy and social emotional development.
(19 months - 3 years old)
(3 years - 5 years)
Having confidence develops good self-esteem to help kids cope with mistakes and to then try again, even if they first failed. Confident children perform better in school, at home and with their friends.
The process of self-expression is shown through creative experiences that help children cope with and express their feelings. Mental growth is also fostered with creativity and gives children the opportunities to try new ideas, ways of thinking, media, processes and problem-solving.
Interaction Based Method
Research shows the importance of stimulating and focused interactions in children, start in infancy. Boosting a child's thinking skills and knowledge through intentional, emotionally supportive, responsive interactions, and instruction, is critical to children's learning.
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
Licensed Family Childcare Provider
Hello ... My name is Constance Johnson (Ms. Connie) and I have been a State of Ohio Licensed Family Childcare Provider since July 1995. I have 3 wonderful children of my own. I totally love my chosen profession; there is no greater feeling then knowing that you helped in the learning and growth of a child. What I enjoy most is seeing the expression of a child who has just discovered something new and wonderful for the first time and when they are able to perform a new skill without assistance for the first time. That look is priceless!
I have been caring for children the majority of my life in one fashion or another, from the young age of 10 to now, caring for family members, neighbor’s children and children in the community. I strive to improve the quality of service I provide to my clients as a Professional Family Childcare Provider by staying informed on the new Childcare laws and mandates, new learning methods and activities.
My childcare center and home areas are separated, but both are non-smoking and fire arm free environments. I am a current member of Ohio’s Step Up To Quality Rating Program, National Association of Family Child Care, AFSCME Ohio’s Child Care Provider Union, Starting Point, Early Childhood Options and Care for Kids.
