Family childcare provides children the comfort and experience of belonging to an extended family. Therefore, I provide a home like setting that follows a structured but flexible schedule that has monthly themes and uses the “whole child approach”. The whole child approach ensures that each child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged, while also setting the standards for long term growth and success. My main goal is prepping and preparing children for Kindergarten and beyond, so I would like to be considered a caregiver or teacher, rather than just a “babysitter”.
Here at Casey's Daycare & Preschool, we have a blend of educational and play based learning activities created by education experts, set in an environment that also focuses on the importance and power of play.
"Children learn as they play, More importantly, during play, children learn how to learn" - O. Fred Donaldson
My name is Casey Garrett, and I have been married to my best friend and loving husband, Mike, since June of 2011. We have two amazing children, a son named Gavin, and a daughter named Reece, that we are extremely proud and thankful for. I started working with children back in 2002 while I was still in high school. I worked for the Jurupa Unified School District as an after school tutor/assistant and then later went on to work as a Lead Teacher/Director's Assistant for a few different preschools. Now that I am a mother, I am excited to bring my teaching experiences into my own home so that I can help prepare my own children, as well as yours, for their own personal and future growth.
I believe that every child’s early experiences enrich and stimulate future growth. Children deserve to be treated and respected as individuals in an environment that welcomes reason, exploration, question, discovery, and imagination. I respect that each child has a need for security, acceptance, love, growth, and stimulation in order to reach each developmental milestone, and to help them conquer the challenges and opportunities of today and beyond.
We have a large daycare space where all the different activities during the day can be held. When the weather is nice we have a beautiful backyard to host outdoor activities. We also have a garden where we grow our own fruits and vegetables in order to reiterate the importance of healthy eating habits, and to develop new skills while also learning about the science and nature of growing our own food.
We live in a family focused neighborhood that is safe and peaceful. We are located close to a couple of community parks, as well as a middle school and elementary school.
