A Place to Shine
Young children who go to Tot Spot Kids get the tools and support they need for their healthy development. All activities are carefully designed to adequately nurture the emotional, intellectual and physical growth of our kids. Through stimulating situations and hands-on learning opportunities, children are free to develop into bright young minds.
My mission is to provide a secure, nurturing, and educational environment for children; a place for children to bloom into responsible, considerate and contributing members of society.
I want all children to have the opportunity to grow physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually by playing, exploring, and learning with others in a fun, safe and healthy environment.
As a family owned and operated organization, Tot Spot Kids welcomes positive family involvement and encourages a parent-teacher approach where the need of every child comes first to obtain successful early childhood education care.
I believe that happy, loved, connected children are destined for success in every facet of their lives.
My approach is a whole child approach, working to strengthen and encourage every child’s emotional, intellectual, social, and physical being through the expert care of teachers and a unique partnership with parents.
When it comes to teaching, I understand the importance of involving families with their child’s developmental milestones and accomplishments. When new skills are introduced or reinforced, having you, your child, and I working together makes learning easy and fun. Using this streamlined approach to learning and keeping a close connection between home and school, Tot Spot Kids ensures each child enrolled receives the individual guidance they deserve.
I know that kids are naturally curious, so why not encourage this curiosity in a secure and educational environment. Guiding each child, while using individual learning levels, creates a significant foundation needed for skills used in higher order thinking.

If you are considering taking your child/children to Tot Spot Kids Daycare I highly suggest you read this first! I’ve known Crystal since around 2009. My son, who is now four, has been going there since just under two years old. There were times that I used her for full-time care, and times that I used her for last minute care. She has always been –incredibly- flexible and always willing to help. She has fantastic rates and I know that my child is well taken care of while he is there. She prepares nutritious and healthy meals and encourages learning through the senses.
I have never had to question or doubt Crystal and I know I can trust her full-heartedly. She is especially good with infants and really little guys!
She makes sure to stay up to date on all of her certifications and is the car-seat safety Queen. She doesn’t have any kids of her own but you’d never know it. She has practically become a second mom to the children that she watches.
If you are considering taking your child to anyone for daycare and want them to have a warm, safe, and nurturing environment look no further! I can vouch for her amazingness after two years! I would be more than happy to answer any questions that you might have. Feel free to shoot me an email and we can even set up to chat on the phone.
