At SING Childcare we know that every child is unique. Our goal is to provide a safe and secure environment where your child can learn, play, grow and shine!
We understand how important the early years of a child’s life are and at SING Childcare we take the responsibility of caring for your child very seriously. That’s why we not only maintain all state and federal requirements for licensing, we go above and beyond whenever possible. We provide healthy food, organic products such as all cleaners and sunblock, hand wipes, a fully-fenced playground with a 6 foot fall safe rubber surface and a security system that keeps us all safe and allows parent/guardian access. Plus much more!
I grew up in Los Angeles County and moved to Orange County in 1990. After I graduated I married and had two children a son, Ryan and daughter, Brittany. I worked in the corporate world most of my adult life. I was very fortunate to have my mother care for my children while they were young. Raising my children and participating with them in all of their daily and extracurricular activities was of utmost importance to me. I am proud to say that while working I was still able to be present in my children’s lives from homework, doctors appointments, and after-school activities to Boy Scouts, Brownies, camping and yes of course whenever they just needed their mom.
After taking a leave of absence to care for an ill loved one I started watching my grandson, Theodore. The immense joy of watching my grandson in his first years and being able to pay forward the gift of having intimate home care made me realize I have a calling to provide this gift to families in my community.
I knew that my love of children combined with my skills from the corporate world (teamwork, leadership, relationships, etc.) made a perfect combination so I started the family home child care journey. I renovated nearly 1/2 of my home and entire backyard for the sole purpose of being used for child care. I went through the state licensing process and received my childcare license. We plan on keeping the doors to SING Childcare open for many years. Our goal is to provide quality childcare for families while nurturing and growing each and every child’s shining imaginations as well as focusing on being happy and healthy!
The following certification and training is required by Community Care Licensing (CCL) in order to obtain and maintain our Family Child Care Facility license:
• Pediatric/Adult CPR, First Aid and AED
• Health & Safety
• Child Nutrition
• Mandated Reporter
While not required by CCL, I feel it is important to have additional training and education in order to provide quality childcare.
• Preventing and Managing Infectious Diseases
• Reducing the Risk of SIDS and SUID
• Bloodborne Pathogens
• Learning My A,B,Cs
• Teaching Basic Social Skills
• Encouraging Parental Involvement
• Learning Through Play
• Equipment, Activities, and Strategies for Promoting Physical Activity
• Praise and Rewards
I am also a member of the NAFCC and am working toward accreditation. I plan to complete all of the requirements by late 2019 which includes 120 hours of training and an in-person observation of my training and capabilities.
What is NAFCC Accreditation?
It is...Quality. Commitment. Excellence.
NAFCC sponsors the only nationally recognized accreditation system designed specifically for family child care providers. Accreditation is awarded to family child care providers who meet the eligibility requirements and the Quality Standards for NAFCC Accreditation. Family child care providers achieve this high level of quality through a process that examines all aspects of the family child care program, i.e. relationships, the environment, developmental learning activities, safety, health, and professional and business practices.
