Hi, my name is Brandy but my kiddies call me Ms. Bee! I have a degree in Human Services with an emphasis in Child & Family Welfare. My plan is to further my education by obtaining a Master's Degree in Child Psychology. My greater goal is to transition my small family daycare into a childcare center here in Oakland working solely with moderate to low-income families.
I have a beautiful son who attends Redwood Heights and will be entering third grade in the fall. I have to admit, I am extremely proud of him and his progress and success academically. So, I understand that as a parent it is 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 relief. Before owning my home daycare I worked in corporate America for over eight years. I decided to start my home business that way I could stay home with my son and actively be involved in his academics and not miss those special day to day moments. I hope to be that same support for you and your family.
I am Pediatric/CPR & First Aide Certified as well as Certified in Preventative Health. I have over 45 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 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!
