Where care is most like home.

Carter’s last Week

This week we said good-bye and good luck to Carter. He has been with us for 2 years and is part of our Daycare family. He is going into a completely new, Center based environment.


We wish him all the best. We will miss you Mr. Carter.

Snow today… Can you believe it? We had quite the busy day full of fun learning activities and play too. We did some crafts, making cotton balls into clouds and Honeycomb cereal into a bee hive. We also did “pick the matching people’ worksheet, colored a horse. Fine motor skills also included practicing how to hold a writing utensil to write or draw then practiced writing the first letter of their name.
I got a few new toys/activities which you can see. J really, REALLY liked the vacuum and both R’s enjoyed the new, fun table. They even drove cars on it.

Another great day.

Daycare April 21, 2016


Once again, another great day here. Like yesterday, we spent most of the day outside enjoying the wonderful weather.  It was a tiny bit chilly when we got out there, but within 30 minutes’ coats were off, the Sunscreen was piled on, water jugs filled and on with the morning playing. You will see I captured our activities for the most part (Sandbox, climbers, ride on toys, ball play, had a sweeping helper, lots of swinging etc.)


Inside for lunch and rest then right back out. This time it was even hotter out. We aren’t quite ready for summer yet, so we improvised. The three little ones wore shirts and very fancy bottoms (Diapers). Got the Sunscreen on again, filled up the water again and spent the rest of the day enjoying the nice weather.


Another great day!

An AMAZING day here at Lil’ Caboose.  We were on the go from open to close. During the chilly morning hours we played in the Daycare room. So many different activities going on, from Building towers,  playing Cook, Mom, Dad and baby, reorganizing and separating learning materials (my little ones love to help), bean bag playing=jumping on it, and so much more.

We headed outside for more fun which included sidewalk chalk pictures, ride on toys/Climbers, kick ball, lots of fun in the sandbox for ALL of us, running around, bubbles and more.

After lunch and rest, right back outside. I surprised the kids by hanging up a large piece of white paper and putting out paints and brushes. My daughter and her friend were a big help. (I will include a few pictures of their “Project” too.)  The kids had no idea what the surprise was going to be.  They came out of the house with T-shirts on and a lot of questions. I instructed them all to grab brushes and put one brush in each paint color, they followed directions very well. I showed them the large white paper and told them to “Go for it” whatever and where ever they wanted to paint. They had so much fun, I loved just watching them be free with the paint, doing circles, straight lines, wiggly lines, hearts, smile faces, uses their own imaginations. Once it was complete we stood back and looked at it. In the collage we found that, each child painting individually,  but had created pictures by combining (unintentionally) their work with others. We found a Bird, Sea horse, Faces, Tulip, and others saw pictures too.

Another great day.

Today was filled with a lot of activity, inside and out. During Preschool we did a review of the shapes as well as matching “same” shapes. We continue to practice the letters in the kids names. Outside was wonderful. e were out most of the morning and afternoon. The kids played with so many items that had been put away for the winter.

Another great day!

Daycare at the Library

Today we took a field trip to the Baxter memorial Library for Toddler Time. There was singing, running, clapping, stomping, reading, a ball pits (for throwing into) building with Mega blocks, and more. The kids were so excited, they had no idea where we were going, until we got there.
REMINDER TO SELF: A double stroller can be a huge help even with four kids.
