Itsy Bitsy welcomes all children including children aged six weeks to twelve years, regardless of ethnicity, gender, religion, national origin, disability, ancestry, or sexual orientation and children with disabilities, we will work with each child to the best of their abilities with a commitment to provide quality care and education. Our curriculum (The Creative Curriculum for Family Child Care) consists of all domains of child development; physical, language, and cognitive. It is relevant, meaningful, and based on prior experiences allowing the children to make connections. Our curriculum is designed to focus on each individual child’s own strengths and weaknesses. This encourages children to become eager learners. The activities we plan for the children, the way we organize the environment, select toys and materials, plan the daily schedule, and talk with the children, are all designed to accomplish the goals of the curriculum and give your child a successful start in school. Good manners as well as being polite, considerate, and helpful are manners that are molded by caregivers and teachers. We believe that every child is unique and value each and every one of them. Our goal is to work as a partnership with families to make their child’s early years the best they can be.
