What Are You Looking For For Your Child?
Peer socialization or individualized child care?
Structured learning or an "open play" emphasis?
Miriam’s Program Has Elements Of Each Of These Childcare Approaches.
Miriam’s small (we cap at 6 children) "home daycare" offers all of the educational advantages of many formal preschools, while having a low child-to-caregiver ratio, opportunities for strong friendships, and numerous field trips a week. Parents and children also love Miriam's 0% staff turnover rate; a rarity indeed compared to preschools and large daycares!
Home base is "Mimi's House", a private home located in the village of La Jolla. Your preschool aged child's perfect introduction to his/her first peer based environment; ABC and book time on a rug, naps in a bedroom and a (provided) family-style lunch around a dining room table. So familiar and comfortable for the young child.
Mimi's House is your child’s dream “home away from home”. Clean and comfortable, it contains fine motor / manipulative learning playsets, a play kitchen, a wooden outdoor playhouse, ride-along toys, a reading library, a stocked train table, a large yet low- to- the-ground activity table, and art supplies.
Your child will engage in both directed and self-directed activities in a child-sized environment. Additionally, we often fit in "park days" and "library days", since a library and a park are within walking distance. Preschool type lessons are taught on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays while
Tuesdays and Thursdays are for driving field trips.
With up to 4 field trips each week, your child will have the unique opportunity to really enjoy sunny, kid-friendly San Diego. This thrills the parent who wants their child to experience the great outdoors every day. Whether by observing snakes at the San Diego Zoo, or by taking a trip to the La Jolla Riford Library, your child will not just learn of the big, fascinating world around him or her; he or she will learn in it.
It's sometimes hard to share a fun toy or always be a good friend when you're a pre-schooler. Miriam's consistent, 20+ years of honed child teaching skills delight parents. Super Nanny/ Nanny 911 level!
In addition, being a part of Miriam's small group gives children a sense of belonging and security. This is highly prized by parents who recognise the value of such emotional support for young children.
