Lily's Day Care is a family-run, state-licensed childcare service. Lily's Day Care has years of experience in natural parenting, and is familiar with cloth diapering and breastmilk. Lily's provides kindergarten preparation for preschoolers and a variety of activities for children, from infants up through school age children. With a focus on diversity and exposure to other cultures, Lily's offers a nurturing environment for the children of our community.
Lily's Day Care uses the innovative teaching techniques of the Montessori school system and the Reggio Emilia Approach. Unlike traditional teaching methods, where each subject is rigidly separated and students conform to the lesson plan of the teacher, these methods focus attention where it belongs – on the student. The teaching style at Lily's is a blend of social development, imagination, and creativity - your child's interests direct the teaching, and one subject leads easily into another. A child might experience the beauty of nature, learn the names of plants and animals, be introduced to the circle of life, and get healthy exercise, all while playing in the expansive backyard available at Lily's. In summertime, kids learn first hand the science and fun of vegetable gardening. Art, English, science, and P.E. all follow naturally from the experience, rather than learning being dictated by and limited to a single subject alone.
Lily's Day Care understands the importance of introducing children to other cultures, and makes diversity the goal whenever possible. The children are given a wide variety of music to listen to on a daily basis, from classics such as Mozart and Bach to African and Spanish songs. The children learn to appreciate the different styles of the world while developing an appreciation for music of all types. In addition, Lily's Day Care can offer your child exposure to Spanish, as the owner is a fluent Spanish and English speaker. It is well-documented that exposure to two or more languages is extremely beneficial to a child – Lily's is able to give your child that extra benefit.
Children at Lily's Day Care have a wide range of opportunities for play and learning. There is a regular storytime, as well as a constant supply of music from all over the world. Younger children have ample exposure to language, both English and Spanish, and the backyard, with playset and beautiful landscaping, is available for all. Care is available both before and after school, and school pick-up and drop-off can be arranged.

2010-01-28 07:57:45 I was quite apprehensive about going back to work when my son was only 4 months old, but having him in Lily’s care has completely alleviated my worry. Lily provides a warm, caring environment, as well as being immaculately clean, and my son is now 16 months and thriving. It was a blessing to find Lily! —KristinS
