About Us

**We are breastfeeding, cloth diapering, and non-vaxxing friendly!** Please note the following benefits of care in our home: -All natural cleaning products - no bleach especially. We mostly clean with just plain old vinegar and baking soda. -Highly beneficial foods - No ingredients such as: high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, modified corn starch, modified food starch, food color additives, artificial sweeteners, artificial preservatives, maltose syrup, etc. - If it isn't good food, it isn't served here! -Fresh fruit is served daily. Cantaloupe, strawberries, bananas, watermelon, apple slices, organic raisins, peaches, grapes (cut for little ones), all natural/no sugar added applesauce, blueberries, etc. -Fresh veggies are served daily- never canned. We typically serve cucumber slices, matchstick carrots, celery sticks, salad, bell pepper slices...although sometimes fresh veggies will be substituted with items such as tomato soup, chicken and veggie soup, or lettuce and tomato on a sandwich. -Sheets/Blankets/Sleeping bags provided for nap time - washed in Free and Clear detergent. -Green environment - no paper towels except for the use as napkins! We clean with rags that are washed daily. We wipe faces/hands with washcloths that are individual to YOUR child and are washed daily. Children eat off of BPA Free plastic dishes and drink out of BPA Free plastic cups that are washed daily. No paper plates to waste trees! We care about the environment and wish to teach the children to do so too! -Children will be encouraged to learn through natural teachable moments. This is not a highly structured learning program where the children are sat down to be drilled in learning their ABCs, 123s, shapes, and colors. -We offer a small handful of age appropriate DVDs/videos a week. Your child(ren) will not be exposed to advertising via commercials and will not spend endless hours in front of a TV. -All hand soaps are artificial color, paraben and phthalate free. -Vaccination forms (Form 3231) are required. However, Vaccination Exemption forms are *highly* suggested. -Latex free environment. We use vinyl gloves and latex free bandages due to allergies. -Medications are not administered. No over the counter medications will be administered except for Benadryl in case of an exposure to an allergen such as food or latex, etc (i.e. not for pollen, etc.) or Tylenol/Motrin if your child has a documented history of febrile seizures. Homeopathic remedies are *highly* encouraged and will be administered with parental permission. -For your child(ren)'s safety, we have a fire extinguisher in our home and we have emergency phone numbers posted by the telephone. -Our home is child-proofed with mounted, swinging, walk-through baby gates at the top and bottom of the stairs, outlet covers, door knob covers, stove knob covers, etc. -Your child(ren)'s food will never be heated up using a microwave - we do not own one! Everything is cooked either on our stove or in our oven. -Step stools are available for children's use in the bathroom. Also, we have a potty seat insert available for potty-training children and a potty chair! Our rates are ALL INCLUSIVE!
