Our Philosophy

It is my belief that all children are significant and deserve the best care and opportunities possible. Each child is a gift to be treasured and nourished. I also believe that children learn best in an environment that is loving, safe, and offers a wide variety of learning experiences in a child’s natural environment. Children learn best through play where activities are child directed but teacher planned. This approach allows for flexible scheduling that reflects the child’s interests, cultural considerations, and primary language. If your child is interested and engaged the learning process is much easier. I have found that raising a child involves cooperation, open communication and understanding between the home environment and the childcare provider to plan the program goals and objectives to meet your child’s individual learning and developmental needs. Thank you for considering and entrusting me with your precious gift!

How we started...

From babysitting, to nannying I have always loved working with children. In 2014, I atteneded college for Early Childhood Education while expecting my first child. By 2017 I was a lead toddler teacher at a learning center. In 2019, I found a new job at a center closer to home where I became a 2-year-old lead teacher. I took a break from early childhood education and began to work with special needs children in 2020. When I was expecting my second child in 2022, my husband and I finally decided to open a home daycare. We weren't able to start the business right away, so I was a nanny, then an infant lead teacher. After almost 2 years of preparation, all of our hard work has finally brought me back home to start Owl's Hollow Childcare LLC. All of the education, experiences, colleagues, the families and children I have worked with over the years has led me to open my heart and my home to families who are seeking a dedicated provider for their children.
