Are you searching for summer child care for your 7-10 year old daughter? I am a state-registered and licensed provider and over the years I've cared for all ages and stages. At this point in time I am looking to add some girls my daughter can play with. She's 8, almost 9, so I think 7-10 years would be a great age range for her.
We have a ton of things to do, and we are 99% screen-free. We have fully fenced front and back yards with room to run and play, build forts, have picnics, play games, and there's a nice play structure too for swinging and hiding out in. We are active, adventurous and curious! We are an outside-in-all-weather family. We do not fear mud or dirt. As a mother I have really tried to let my daughter explore, experiment, and develop her imagination. I try to support her in satisfying her curiosity about life, things and the world we live in. So our overall philosophy is pretty relaxed. We like lots of paint and glue and pretending to be wizards and building secret hideouts. We like messing around in the kitchen to see what crazy new cookie we can invent. We like gardening, reading, making little dolls, and writing weird and funny stories. She seems to have an engineering bent, so we've been doing a lot of building with Legos recently too. I am raising her to be a strong, confident, capable girl, and I do a lot of teaching of basic skills, as well as affirming that what's inside is more important than what is on the outside.
We have a few great girls that already come for after-schol care, but most are gone for school breaks and my daughter would love to have some playmates for those times. My rate is $5.00 per hour for up to 6 hours, after that it's a flat $30.00 per day. This covers all meals and snacks, as well as the huge amount of arts and crafts supplies and other creative materials we tend to go through. If you're looking for child care and this sounds good to you, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you soon!
