JONI HUFFMAN – OWNER
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, take on DIY projects, and spend time with family. I decided to start a childcare business to stay home with my own children. Shortly thereafter I took formal early childhood education through the UC Davis Ext. and have countless hours of ECE continuing education hours. Through PCOE, I became certified on positive discipline techniques and have had the honor of being a Mentor Provider for Placer County Office Of Education’s Early Quality Matters, and Mentoring Program for the past 6 years.
MISS RACHEL – ASSISTANT
Miss Rachel is a mother of 3 amazing teenagers. Rachel is also participating in the Early Quality Matters program through PCOE. EQM offers professional growth workshops, the CARES program, and much more. She is eager to learn new ideas and share them with our program. In her spare time, Rachel enjoys spending time with her family. She brings experience from the Montessori philosophy and has years of experience with children. We are very blessed to have her with us.
Our program is play based and consists of an Early Childhood STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) style curriculum that encourages creativity through themes and process art. Teacher or child directed activities are offered. Meaning, we believe in intentional teaching but also know that child lead activities are most engaging for young children. Social/Emotional skills are huge for children in this age group and is a huge part of our daily learning. Our library is full of quality, diverse books. We encourage the love of literacy through reading often, Scholastic Magazines, offering a lending library, Zoo-phonics, and Learning without Tears programs. The children are also inspired to use problem solving, 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.
