Welcome to my family childcare/preschool home in Roseville! Where I try to provide your children with a first-class early development experience. I focus on children ages 20 months to 5 years and our program consists of 10 -12 children on average which means no more than a 6 children to 1 adult ratio.

I encourage you to come learn about the program and meet me to see what I have to offer in terms of a family childcare home environment and curriculum.

My family childcare preschool home has been licensed and in good standing since 2003, by me, Joni Huffman, a parent of three wonderful children. I love to read, travel, and spend time with family when I have free time.  I decided to start a childcare business to stay home with my own children. 474429_10200312985800290_1265409195_o   Shortly thereafter I took formal early childhood education through the UC Davis Ext., have completed over 250 professional growth hours through Child Action, Inc. and PCOE. With PCOE, I have also been certified on positive discipline techniques and hold parent training programs for families that are interested. I also currently have 12 ECE units. I have also had the honor of becoming a Mentor Provider for Placer County Office Of Education and their Training, Enrichment, and Training Program.


Miss Sara is currently attending Sierra College in the Early Childhood Education Program. Her goal is to become a speech pathologist.  Sara also attends professional growth workshops through PCOE and is eager to learn new ideas to bring to our program.  In her spare time, Sara enjoys camping, music, and spending time with her family.  She is IMG_20140528_110836_020-1amazing with the children and we are blessed to have her working with us.






Miss Cindy is another great asset to our program. She has  grandchildren that attend preschool here and has experience volunteering in the IMG_20141030_093250_634  public school system. Miss Cindy is a great cook and helps make nutritious meals when she is here.  She is  great at capturing photographs of the children that we share on this site so you can see what they are learning.  Cindy loves the ocean, has a knack for home décor, and loves to spend time with her grandchildren.

The curriculum used is a creative/project style curriculum that encourages creativity through themes and process art. The children are also encouraged to problem solve, learn pre-k skills, decision making, and self-help while promoting interpersonal communications through play and group activities. These are key elements which contribute to the child’s development, self esteem and school readiness. Among these elements, the safety, health, and well being of the children are always a number one priority. I also strive for a stress free environment and believe that children learn best when they are in a comfortable and caring setting.

Parent/provider communication is strongly encouraged because I believe that communication between parent and provider is vital to the child’s success and happiness. The parent/provider relationship must be one of mutual trust, honesty and respect.
