What to Expect from Small Wonders In-Home Childcare

Highest Priority For Safety

The main objective of Small Wonders In-Home Childcare is to provide for the health and safety of the children in care. Even before the pandemic we followed a through cleaning and sanitation regime, but with Covid, mask wearing, table shields, air purifiers, UV light sanitation and an outdoor handwashing station as been added. Parents are asked to perform health checks before bringing their children and drop-offs and pick-ups are at the entrance. State and CDC COVID-19 guidelines, recommendations and cleaning procedures are being followed.

Parents Role

My expectations for my clients/parents are to work daily with their children at home and to make sure that they are getting adequate sleep at night so that their learning day can be positive and productive from start to finish. I also expect for you to discuss with me any concerns or issues you may have that affects you or your child immediately. We are a team with a common goal to see your child thrive and succeed.

Once a year I will offer a free evening/night out for my parents as a show of appreciation, either around Valentines or Christmas. This includes crafts, activities, dinner, a movie, games and lots of fun. Parents can request a Parents Nights Out where they pay for needed childcare at a drop-in rate.
