Childcare/playgroup opening for 3-4 Year Old

Sitter in Pflugerville

Hello! I am a former teacher, current mother of two (a one-year-old boy and a nearly 3 year-old girl), hoping to find a fun addition to our "family." In no way is this a daycare, nor am I seeking to become one. I'm simply hoping to find a pre-schooler around my daughter's age to join in on our daily activities to provide a fun opportunity for a play-group type setting without the stress and difficulties of a daycare. Obviously, this will be a very low parent-to-child ratio (3:1). As a former teacher with a background in early childhood development and literacy, I am a huge advocate of Montessori learning practices, as well as child-lead learning with parent guided practice. I observe what is currently interesting my children and incorporate elements of learning into their daily play, with some structured learning activities, but mostly learn-through-play opportunities. I also believe children need structure and routine to learn, grow, and understand the world around them. With that being said, I have a pretty established routine so the children know what to expect and can prepare for what's coming next. We have a daily and weekly routine that include music, art/crafts, cooking, motor skill development, literacy, technology, and room for activities that are of current interest to the children. We have a large dedicated space for the playroom, but basically our entire house is child-friendly. The playroom is organized into centers, much like in a kindergarten classroom. We have a home center that features a play kitchen, table, cribs, etc. An art center with whiteboard and magnetic walls, a table dedicated for painting, playdough, crafts, etc. A reading nook, car and building center, grocery store set-up, dress-up area, and a small play area (Little People, Ponies, Barbies, Doll house, etc.). If you have a child around 3-4 years old and are looking for an individualized, fun, learning-based atmosphere for him or her, I would love to hear from you and discuss your needs/expectations as well as address any questions you may have. I have lesson plans/curriculum that we can discuss to see if we are a good fit for one another. Thank you for your time! Please feel free to contact me either via email or the phone number listed.
