HomeDaily ActivitiesD'Andrea's CalendarCurriculum
D'Andrea's Friends -N- Play Daycare is not a preschool, but we do offer an informal theme based preschool program. I will incorporate a preschool curriculum into our daily activities for fun and to prepare the older children for school.  This is done at no additional cost to you.  This theme based curriculum is set up on a weekly basis, but if a theme is of particular interest to the children we will spend extra time on it.  Children participate in a full range of activities such as free play, cooking, outside play, stories, dramatic play, creative art, crafts, music, and much more. These activities will allow your child(ren) to be successful and feel good about themselves, use and develop language skills, use large and small muscles, learn new ideas and skills and expose the child(ren) to a variety of cultures.

Through a mixture of guided and undirected creative play, children will have the opportunity to learn about color, shapes, textures, numbers, letters, animals, seasons, feelings, senses, nutrition, personal hygiene, manners, basic science and math concepts.

We do not believe in pushing any child to learn at an accelerated rate, and will not make a child feel pressured to achieve any developmental milestones.  By providing the right kind of fun in a safe environment, we believe that children will learn at their own appropriate pace.

All children programs are inspired by the "learning by doing" philosophy.

Receipts will be given for cash payments, or upon request.  A record of all payments made by you will be kept on file in order to provide you with a summary by the end of January for your Income Tax purposes.
Due to a numerous number of requests for child care, I do not hold spaces without pay.  Each space represents a percentage of my income.  When you chose to place your child in my care I will reserve the slot for you as soon as possible, but not before, all completed paperwork is returned to me along with the Registration Fee as well as the final 2 weeks deposit (or 1st payment on 8 week installment plan).  This acts as a commitment to me on your part.  Until that time I will continue to interview for other clients.  If paperwork and fees are returned to me, I will hold your slot for up to 8 weeks.  These fees are non-refundable, even if other child care arrangements are found.  Late payment policies will apply to fees not received as described above.
