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.
