As an in-home child care provider... WE NEVER HAVE MORE THAN 4 KIDS... by our choice.
We're open 7- 5, Mon-Fri, except 6 holidays. Call us at 451-6939 to talk, leave a message, set-up a visit, or view our entire neighborhood (in a past summer pic (@ 1341 Glenstone Dr.) on a Google Maps page.
We specifically welcome young kids—with the new MO. law we're "ok" for 3 kids, 8 weeks to 2 years, and 3 kids age 2 -3 years old preferred. While our limit is 6 kids total, Right now… we want only 4 kids. So yes, we do welcome younger children --especially under age 2. (so we have NO bigger school age kids running around room to room, a key safety point).
WE DO NOT TAKE ( potentially sick ) non-regular non day-after-day children... NO DROP-INS & NO AFTER SCHOOL KIDS, any days,
Carolyn & the caregivers (including her husband + two more relatives / staff members), have 30+ years experience with infants, toddlers, & pre-school kids... all with state “background check” approvals. And, Carolyn once managed a 46 child daycare... for 5 years. Plus, the 2 Grandparents have 28+ years of 1-2 days a month nursery and toddler care at a Neosho church. We work on developmental learning and play time, not passing hours watching / chasing kids room to room.
We are (1) SMOKE FREE, (2) we use ONE big room, (3) with NO "new" DROP-IN kids "some" days, and (4) we have NO AFTER-SCHOOL kids every day, (these 4 items are ALL allergy / health, and/or simply child safety concerns). We are in a newer part of a 3,200 sq. ft. home, 3 blocks N. of the big Neosho underpass (check Google Maps by the address for a summer pic of our neighborhood). Sorry, we do not participate in a state financially subsidized care program. But, we have a big plus: we offer 21 FREE "SKIP DAYS" for vacations, sick days, overnight trips, etc., each year. FREE days saves you money equal to $7 each week over a full year, and, your child’s care position... remains securely yours.
Our rate: $80 a week (MON-FRI);
