Home Daycare in Pontoon Beach

My name is Karen and I have been doing childcare forever 18 years.

I have raised 3 kids into adults and am raising 3 more. I am grandmother to 9 grandchildren ranging in ages 1 to 19 years.

There have been questions as to what kind of curriculum I provide. I only watch a few children in my home which means one child could possibly be an infant and another a before and after school age, so I do not have a curriculum that I follow for the few that I care for, however, we do age appropriate activities. When a child in my care reaches preschool age they usually attend Head Start or the local school district preschool for a half day and ride a bus to and from my house. If you are looking for a teaching type of facility then my daycare is not the right one. But, if there are certain things you want me to address with your child I am very open and a lot more complying than your more structured facilities where you have to comply with them. I am able to provide more one on one personal care than a large group facility. It gives the children a sense of security in a home setting.

My location sits in between and provides easy access to I270, I55/70 and I255.
