When I step through the door, it’s quiet. Naptime.
Depending on the day, there are one to seven kids in the house. The
kids arrive at 8:00 am and leave at 4:30 or around that time. At first
I felt grown-up to have those kids staring at me, but I got used to
My mom runs a family daycare at our house. Every day when
I get home from school, about seven little one to four year olds greet
me. At first I felt like the big kid, but after about three months I
got used to it, and so did they.
On the porch on hot days they have water activities and
the sensory table. In the sensory table Cheryl puts wool, water, toys
beans, rice, flour. The daycare children touch and feel (sometimes eat)
the things in the sensory table, hence the name.
my mom’s daycare, she basically always serves organic food. She
does this because she thinks that kids should know that their food does
not just come from the grocery store. She makes their bread and pizza,
and when she does go to the grocery store, she buys organic food.
In the backyard there is water play, sprinkler tag, etc.
At pick-up time the parents like to talk to each other
and hang out.
