Hi, my name is Brandy but my kiddies call me Ms. Bee! I have a Bachelor's of Science in Human Services with an emphasis on Youth/Family Services & Administration. I'm currently working on a Master's Degree in Human Services. My greater goal is to work with our youth here in Oakland providing support and referral services to their families.
I have a beautiful son who attends Redwood Heights and will be entering fourth grade in the fall. I have to admit, I am extremely proud of him and his hard work and success academically. So, I understand that as a parent it's hard to let go of our children while they are so young in age. My goal as a provider is to be their "home away from home" and your daily relief. Before owning my home daycare I worked in corporate America for over ten years. I decided to start my home business as a way I could stay home with my son and actively be involved in his growing process/ academics. Staying at home, was a way I was able to be apart of those special day to day moments. I hope to be that same level of support/influence to you and your family.
I am Pediatric/CPR & First Aide Certified as well as Certified in Preventative Health. I have over 149 College Units in Early Childhood Development and counting! I am a warm, nurturing, & reliable source of care. I'm flexible and work with my parents to accommodate their needs. I offer drop-in services, overnight, extended stay and weekend care as additional services to my enrolled families.
My program is designed to meet the needs and abilities of each child's physical, emotional, intellectual and social development. The environment is hands-on, educational, and of course, fun. My desire is to assist and encourage each child's abilities and skills throughout every stage of their development. Your child will have a safe, clean, healthy place to grow and learn.
Children learn best through play. I try to provide many opportunities for them to "discover" things about the world they live in. Children need to be treated as special little individuals with much to share. Each child brings a new and exciting personality to my daycare which I try to nurture, help them with socialization skills, and guide them through each new and exciting day!
