I do not run a strict daycare. I do try to run a structured daycare. The children will have the opportunity to participate in the daily routine but not in a strict atmosphere. I feel they will have plenty of this in their school years. It is more important for them to learn to be social and caring individuals. During the course of the day, the children will be involved with various activities such as, storytime, sing-a-long time, puzzles, large muscle activities, individual quiet time, free play and TV. The arts and crafts program that I involve the children in, is a nursery and pre-school program geared for the 2 1/2-5 year old. It has been a highly successful program and extremely useful in preparing the children for the public school system. The children that have completed this program have had outstanding reports from their teachers during their early school years, some whom have graduated with High Honors and above.
