Parents are typically the legal owners of the non-profit day care and will routinely provide consulting services in areas in which they are professionally qualified (for example accounting, legal advice, or human resources) for free. (There are some non-profits not operated by parents, but by a board of directors made up of community representatives who want what is good for the children.)
My licensed home childcare will incorporate the experience and knowledge I have gained while working 13 years as a preschool teacher most of which was at a NAEYC accredited 4 Star Qualistar rated program. I am CPR/First Aid certified. I have a fenced in backyard and there is a park nearby. I absolutely LOVE spending my days watching children learn, grow, and experience the world around them, to me there is no other job as rewarding!
I am a single mom that has a desire to stay home and raise my one and a half year old son so I am starting daycare where I can also give other children the opportunity to spend their day in a home environment as well as learning and playing in a stimulating and enriching space where there is structure and activities as well as freedom to be a kid and enjoying play.
Learning Stories  are documents that are used by caregivers and educators in childcare settings. They use a storytelling format instead of a traditional ‘observation’ report to document the different ways that young children learn, and capture the moment in greater detail and provide parents with a greater insight into the events that occur in their child’s time in childcare.

“Lucas has been enrolled at the Aurora, CO TLE since they opened their doors. He has learned so much and has loved all of his teachers. He has progressed from Preppers to Preschool 1 and now Preschool 2. I am confident he will be prepared for Kindergarten next year. Alyssa started in the infant room and has just moved to Twaddlers. Both kids love the center and the management and teachers have been wonderful. ”
They did not feed my kids, and charged me for it. I picked my kids up, and they were starving. I called back to ask why they didn't get lunch, and was told my kids didn't want any. However, we charged you for it since we sat the lunch in front of them. Complete LIE!!! If they sat it in front of my kids, at the very least my kids would have picked over it. My kids undeniably stated there was no food fixed for them. What a joke
