Just like I thought...I found the daycare of my dreams (if there is such a thing). It's called Morning Star Lutheran Daycare (http://preschoolmorningstar.com/). And we fell in love the minute I opened the door. It was almost like when I tried on my wedding dress, once I saw it, I knew it was the one!
So without even showing my husband I registered him for February! He only has a total of 26 days left at his current place.
Unbeknown to Angelo, he'll soon participate in the following schedule:
8:00 - Prayer and Breakfast
8:30 - Outside Time
9:00 - Daily specials which include; rhythm and music, fine arts, cooking, chapel and gymnastics.
12:00 - Prayer and Lunch
12:30 - Nap time
3:00 - Playtime
3:30 - Snacks
4:00 - Outside/Fellowship Hall till mom and dad pick him up
Each week the kids have a special theme. For instance Angelo's first week will be "Red, White, and Pink - I love you" Along with a monthly service project or field trip - Valentines for Lutheran Family Services is the first project. He'll even participate in a Spring Program at the end of the year.
On Wednesday nights they hold a dinner for the kids and parents so you can eat with your child and their friends and meet their families.
He'll still be able to do two days a week with Grandma Sandy too.
So I pay a little more than I planned, but he'll get so much! It's really a giant weight off me, I almost feel like I can breathe again.
Oh, and did I mention it comes with highly educated teachers, security access, a state of the art playground and it's own kitchen? It's also an ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church of America) Church, which is what I grew up with. So I feel so comfortable.
So I "found it," with a little help and all your prayers!
Thanks for reading post after post about day cares.
