Parents are you need of "Quality, affordable childcare you can trust", call Bright From The Start In Home Daycare today!!!
In-home childcare often appeals to parents who want to keep their child(ren) in a warm, friendly, homelike environment. If you find a good home daycare — one you feel comfortable leaving your child in every day — it can be a wonderful alternative to center care. Your child has all the comforts and security of a home setting, as well as other children to play and socialize with.
Studies show that home daycare is a good option because groups are often smaller than they are in centers, the homelike environment is comforting and reassuring, kids have a single, consistent caregiver (sometimes two, if the provider has an assistant), and children may be exposed to fewer illnesses. Of course, that's all assuming you've found a great provider. An ongoing study by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development confirms the importance of quality in childcare, no matter what kind you use.
So if you are looking for a fun and loving home environment for your child(ren) to grow and learn in? I run a in home daycare/preschool in Valley Stream, NY, where children of all age are welcome to join.

Children Learn Through Play. Play is the child¹s work, perhaps the child¹s most important way of learning. This learning process occurs even when it may not be obvious, when children actively explore their environment and act on their inborn curiosity. Adults can contribute to this natural process by encouraging children¹s interests and efforts, talking to them about what they are experiencing, and helping them elaborate and extend their play.
Children Learn from Their Peers
When children play with siblings and friends, they learn from each other. As questions, challenges, and conflicts arise, they learn how to solve problems. For example, a three-year-old is in the block area trying to "put a roof on her house." Her more experienced four-year-old playmate suggests, "Let's try the longer block it looks like it might fit better." This mixed-age play in particular allows children to learn in two ways, both by modeling the behavior of older children and by "teaching" younger children.
Children Learn With Support
It doesn't work just to tell children "You must share." At best, such orders are effective only temporarily while adults are present. However, when adults guide children through the process of taking turns or waiting for a turn, the children can internalize those strategies and use them the next time. For instance, a two-year-old wants a turn pushing a wagon, but both wagons are in use. A teacher says so that all can hear, "Jason is really waiting for a turn. He'll be ready as soon as you're done. Let's see what you can do, Jason, until they are finished. You can help put some more leaves in the wagon. Here's a rake to get another pile ready." This approach helps the child have a role and a way to enter the play. Such emotionally supportive language also helps children view adults as their advocates. It helps them solve problems rather than turning the situation into a struggle.
Children Learn by Using Basic Materials
Young children learn by doing. Helping with cooking, chores, and other real work is of tremendous interest and value to them. This hands-on learning is also encouraged with open-ended materials such as:
