JUST PLAYING

When I am building in the block room, please don’t say I’m “just playing”. For you see, I’m learning as I play, about balance and shapes. Who knows, I may be an architect someday.

When I’m getting all dressed up, setting the table, caring for the babies, don’t get the idea I’m “just playing”. For, you see, I’m learning as I play; I may be a mother or a father someday.

When you see me up to my elbows in paint or standing at an easel, or molding & shaping clay, please don’t let me hear you say, “He is just playing”. For, you see, I’m learning as I play. I’m expressing myself & being creative. I may be an artist or inventor someday.

 

When you see me sitting in a chair “reading” to an imaginary audience, please don’t laugh & think I’m “just playing”. For, you see, I’m learning as I play. I may be a teacher someday.

When you see me combing the bushes for bugs, or packing my pockets with choice things I find, don’t pass it off as “just play”. For you see, I’m learning as I play. I may be a scientist someday.

When you see me engrossed in a puzzle or some “plaything” at my school, please don’t feel the time is wasted in “play”. For, you see, I’m learning as I play. I’m learning to solve problems & concentrate. I may be in business someday.

 

When you see me cooking or tasting foods, please don’t think that because I enjoy it, it is “just play”. I’m learning to follow direction & see differences. I may be a cook someday.

When you see me learning to skip, hop, run & move my body, please don’t say I’m “just playing”. For, you see, I’m learning as I play. I’m learning how my body works. I may be a doctor, nurse or athlete someday.

 

When you ask me what I’ve done at school today, & I say, “I just played”, please don’t misunderstand me. For you see, I’m learning as I play. I’m learning to enjoy & be successful in my work. I’m preparing for tomorrow. Today, I am a child & my work is play.

Hello and welcome to my child care website.  I have been a licensed childcare provider for 20 years.  I have provided the highest-quality childcare to families from Andover, Anoka, Ramsey, and Coon Rapids.

Our home was specifically designed and built for my daycare.  We live on a quiet cul-de-sac with a park less then a block away!  Our entire lower level is designated for daycare and walks out to a fenced-in play area with a Rainbow Play System.  My home is clean, child-proofed, has an emphasis on safety, and is filled with age-appropriate toys for everyone.  My home is smoke free at all times.

Please contact us about our current OPENINGS

Conveniently located in Andover, near Round Lake Boulevard, 7th Avenue, & Highway 10
