Day and EVENING childcare
Most families can't afford to live on one income; putting most of us in the position to pay someone else to be a primary caretaker of our children. From experience, it's a very painful decision. Children these days often spend more hours in childcare than in their own homes. Living in Las Vegas there are many families with no other choice but to work through the night, left struggling to find a late nigh or evening care. I believe offering day, evening, late night and providing a preschool curriculum will not only provide more choices, but also ease the struggle in making difficult decisions for childcare that many families are forced to make. Parents then remain in the roll of primary caretaker, raising their own children, during the day. Families without the need to work evenings can rest assured that their children are going to be provided with a preschool curriculum. I believe a preschool curriculum can prepare children not only for school, but for life as well.

Special programs: Childcare, in my opinion, is a home away from home for children while their parents work. A preschool curriculum encourages children to develop a strong sense of individuality, responsibility, and promotes their natural strengths. My preschool curriculum is designed to teach skills and concepts that are reinforced with in a wide variety of activities. Children learn through having fun and keep learning through dramatic play, music, movement, math, science, circle time, and early literacy experiences. The children would be introduced to necessary skills and concepts in pre-writing, pre-reading, social studies, creative arts, health, â€¢GREEN education etc. in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. Many educators believe that children provided with a preschool curriculum develop positive self-concepts and basic understandings and skills that make them better able to apply their efforts to intellectual tasks when they enter school. Your children will be prepared to enter their next step in their early childhood education with the necessary building blocks to be successful.
