Welcome to Tot Spot Kids
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.
