Our In Home Childcare
Our Lakeview East in-home childcare serves children between the ages of 15 months and 4 years in an intimate group of ten children and two dedicated teachers. The combination of age and abilities gives younger children friends to look up to, and older children partners to share knowledge with. Our main focus is teaching through art and creative movement. We provide daily outlets for expression and growth including arts and crafts, songs, and dance. Our children learn about themselves and the world around them through creativity. We are a multicultural daycare, and expose children to three languages; English, Spanish, and Serbian.
We help children with age-appropriate independence tasks including potty training, using words, and self help. We teach social skills, from taking turns and manners to sharing and respecting elders. We teach letters, numbers, colors, shapes, and calendar terms through our play-based curriculum. We offer manipulatives, sensory exploration, and dramatic play opportunities. Our special events include science experiments, cooking projects, family gatherings, field trips, daily time outside, and playtime in our in-home play gym.
