Hello! My name is Ms. Denise, owner and teacher/provider of Lakes Child Care. I have over 26 years experience in early childhood education. I currently hold 24 ECE units and over a two-hundred training hours in professional development directly related to child development.
As an early childhood educator, it is my goal to serve the children and families in our community and surrounding areas with high-quality child care and early learning opportunities. To provide an inclusive, safe, nurturing environment where children can learn and develop to their fullest potential. To prepare children for school and help them grow and learn in all areas of their development.
We strive to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic learners. I believe children learn best by doing. Learning requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work and to learn firsthand about the world we live in. The way this happens in early childhood is by playing games, using their imaginations, expressing their emotions, creating and exploring their environments. Their play is a balance of child-initiated learning and a teacher-directed approach by intentionally planning, organizing the classroom and setting up activities to meet the needs of individual students. We question and extend their thinking and play to help them learn and grow.
We provide nutritious breakfast, lunch, and snacks daily. We adhere to the CACFP nutrition standards for children. Many items on our menu are organic, including milk! We will do our best to accommodate children who have special diet restrictions, or parent's may supply their food/drinks.
We have a wide variety of activities that is so extensive it would be impracticable to list them all. Here are a few examples: playdough, kinetic sand, paint, art supplies, math & literacy games, Pre-K Journaling, Fine-Motor Journaling, manipulatives, sensory tray & table, story time, cooking activities, music & movement, science/STEAM, outdoor play & games, and dramatic play.
