When I moved to Dallas trying to find daycare that worked for our family was a daunting task. There were several people I talked to but Jessica was the only one who stood out to me. From our first email she was always had quick responses and was very thorough with her questions and answers to mine and since then her thoroughness has continued. My son has so much fun while he is at Jessica's. Every day they work on curriculum. Since my son started there I have seen a huge improvement with my son's interest in the alphabet and numbers. He also has fun activities each day. He brings home crafts that he made that are associated with his curriculum he is learning at that time. He enjoys circle time where he gets to read books and sing. He also enjoys healthy meals while he is there; sometimes I think he eats better than I do. I also get a sheet each day that tells me what he did that day and it makes me feel like I was able to be part of his day even though I wasn't able to be there. She treats my son as if he were one of her own children. I brag about her all the time and I'm glad I have the opportunity to share this with you too. She is different than any other babysitter out there and I am so lucky to have found her!

Jessica has watched my children on several occasions for "drop-in" days, each time both of kids have a blast and we know they are being taken care of and looked after with love...and taught a few new things as well!

I have used Jessica periodically for Drop In care for my two boys and they love her in home daycare!!! They enjoy all the crafts and learning games she does with them while they are there and she cooks hot meals for breakfast and lunch that my boys love!!! They always have so much fun playing with the other kids and its the one place I can take my kids and I know that are being cared for with love and I can trust her. She is a treasure and I am so glad I found McGhee Family Daycare!!!

Becoming licensed is crucial to any childcare facility if they want parents to know that they are serious about the kids that are in their care. Jessica realized this early on and that is why she has met every guideline and stipulation required by the state. One event she has added to her daily schedule for the betterment of the children is ‘Circle Time’. Circle time consists of singing, practicing flash card recognition, and reading. Even at their young age, Jessica realizes the importance of reading.

There are several benefits to reading to children at such a young age. Did you know that when you read aloud to children it actually teaches them proper communication, can teach them the importance and necessity of numbers, letters, and even shapes in a way they will enjoy it! Allowing a child to enjoy education from an early age will also allow them to retain it forever.

Building Character At An In Home Daycare Rowlett Tx Showcases Is Nothing New!

Rowlett is known for much! Family involvement is one of the most important. Rowlett is definitely known for their educational parks and recreation centers. There are childcare centers that are literally preparing children for kindergarten at an early age. It is not done as a barrage of information being thrown at them, but rather through fun games and interaction with each other. Babies, toddlers, and even pre-school age children are learning through reading and being read to. When Jessica reads aloud to the children she is teaching them to build their listening skills, memory skills, and especially their vocabulary skills.

The English language does not have to seem so complex and confusing to a child when it is absorbed naturally. Speaking in a natural and warm tone will teach the children the same. Proper English is spoken in Jessica’s home to strengthen this amongst the children as well. The slurring of words and lisps that many children grow into are actually turning out to be a thing of the past, due to reading.

 

Acceptable Forms Of Reading Material For An In Home Daycare Rowlett Tx Has Recently Showcased!

Reading to babies: babies learn from repetition. It is perfectly ok to read the same books over and over again. One thing to remember is to emphasize on the same words each time. The babies will pick up on these changes in your tone and begin to mimic you. Thus they are learning to read even at their young level.

 

Reading to toddlers: introducing interactive books at this age is an excellent way to continue feeding the need to read within children. Reading books that allow the children to interact with them involves them and brings them into the story as well. Stop throughout the reading and ask them a question, ask them to point to something on the page, or ask them to mimic a word you have read.

 

Reading to preschoolers: an excellent time to introduce their own books. Give them a book with only a few pages, a perfect time to introduce a book just for them. Make sure there are only a few words per page, literally 2 to 5 words per page. These words should be repeated throughout the book to encourage verbal interaction.
