Established in 1979, Home Sweet Home Child Care operates year-round, providing daycare and preschool learning for children ages 3 months to 5 years old. 


The play-based activities are brain builders, giving your child a strong foundation by building creative and critical thinking skills. Your child will grow into a confident learner while also learning to be a team player.


The program at Home Sweet Home captivates your child’s natural sense of wonder and curiosity. The warm and loving learning spaces allow the children to build friendships and positive, trusting relationships with both their teachers and other children.


The learning spaces are child-directed, with a rich and varied range of opportunities and materials to experiment with. Our classrooms respect and reflect the interests and ideas of preschool children. The staff allows the children plenty of time to discover, explore, and play with their friends.


Home Sweet Home’s certified outdoor classroom also offers many opportunities to learn about nature. After attending a Nature Explore workshop training, Owner/Director Lenore Johnson incorporated an outdoor classroom onto the property, providing a fantastic learning experience for infants and toddlers. The little ones are supervised as they explore and investigate the natural world. The small backyard was divided into sections to create all the different areas needed for certification. The natural, backyard space encourages physical, sensory, and social activities.


The outdoor music and movement area have child-sized musical instruments and other items to enliven creative play. The building area has tree blocks, bamboo blocks, and other natural building materials. The sand and messy areas are filled with a variety of seasonal materials like leaves, straw, pine cones, feathers, and rocks, providing vital tactile experiences. The garden features a variety of edible plants such as strawberries and peppermint, along with peony and hosta bushes. The gathering area is where the children gather in a circle for storytime or to watch the birds and butterflies. The little ones also really love the open action area to run and jump as they please.

My daughter and our family really enjoyed Lenore and her staff. They were flexible with us when needed and they paid very close attention to her and her behaviors and personality. We are relocating but would recommend Lenore to anyone in the area as a great childcare option!!! We will miss them!read more

We cannot say enough good things about Home Sweet Home Daycare. Our son thrived here as an infant. We are thankful to have found a daycare in a home environment where he is allowed free play and exploration. Lenore and her staff are very accommodating to our son’s schedule and allow him to keep the schedule we set up at home through his time at daycare. The small class size means more one on one attention from his caring teachers and he has learned so much from them and the other babies. Everyday when we pick him up, he is rested, happy and well fed. We are grateful to have found a daycare that works so well with infants; it has been a great fit for our more

We have two daughters enrolled here. Our first daughter is almost two and has been going to Home Sweet Home ever since I returned to work right after her birth. We love it so much that our second daughter (newborn) started last week when I returned to work again. Lenore and her staff provide a high level of care and learning for the children. I never worry because I know they are happy, safe, and having fun every day. My oldest has learned so much and is very developmentally and socially advanced, which I attribute in large part to her learning and playing with friends at daycare. She brings home art projects and demonstrates so much that she learns there. She is always excited to go! They have always worked with us to make sure our wishes for the children’s care are fulfilled, at every stage from the delicate newborn to the busy growing toddler, as well as worked with our schedules even when things have been hectic. Highly recommend Home Sweet Home to be your children’s home away from home when you cannot be with more
