“It is my intention to provide responsible loving care for your child. I feel that a mutual understanding between you as a parent and me as a child care provider is in the best interest for your child as well as for us.”
-Ann Fuqua your Child Care Provider
I am “Miss Ann” to the children in my child care. I began my child studies as a teenager caring for a diverse group of children from the neighborhood and from my parents’ pool of friends. I continued my child development education in college. After schooling, I began working outside my field of study in a customer care position (that I so dearly loved), but emotionally I could not return to that job once my oldest child was born.
I realized at that time, what I needed to do to fulfill my educational experiences and personal goals was to run a California State Licensed Family Home Child Care Service which was established in November of 1990 (License Number 430756121). I am also a parent to three incredible children (/young adults). I look forward to the challenges of each new day and will provide for you and your child, a nurturing, loving and safe child care experience connected closely with positive values and an educational experience for life long learning.
I make every attempt to try to provide a multi-aged child care service as it allows for a unique opportunity to foster and develop language skills, social and emotional skills, cognitive (thinking) skills and fine and gross motor skills. Children learn through play and imitation. But most of all children learn through correct avenues of dealing with other children of varying age. I believe child care is the shaping of a young life. It is not only the teaching of the “ABC’s” and “1, 2, and 3′s”. It is teaching etiquette. It is learning about respect and caring for each other. It is educating in a nurturing and loving environment to produce a happy, healthy and successful individual in the long term. I offer a variety of daily indoor and outdoor activities and field trips to local parks and places of interest to entertain and encourage personal growth in safe age appropriate environment.
