Drop In Daycare

About

Passion. Experience. Diligence.

History

Having worked in child care for over ten years, I had become frustrated and discouraged with many of North Carolina’s laws as to what can and can not be done in a classroom. (For example, did you know that in a licensed center in North Carolina, that it is a violation to use food for activities, such as cheerio beading, or skittles science experiments (they believe it sends a mixed signal, and teaches children to play with their food instead of having a healthy relationship with food) -crazy, right?! ) So with these limitations and many others, I could not do and create the magical space that I wanted and felt like I wasn’t giving my all and I just wasn’t fulfilled.

My dream is to create a “discovery place”-esque environment for your children to come dream, explore, and discover. I have such a passion for education and engaging children. I live for those “light bulb moments” where a child “gets it” and the connection has been made, and that love of learning has been reinforced! I wasn’t getting that with my employment, so I decided to create it! I have carefully curated toys that engage, challenge, and build children’s strength and knowledge, and with my education and experience, I help facilitate play so that children get the most out of each visit!

Drop in daycare is a much more relaxed environment, as we are not regulated by the state, so we have more freedom and flexibility to think outside the box and create amazing moments and memories for your child!
