About Our Schedule
Our hours are from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Our day goes pretty much like this (although babies and toddlers have a way of changing things around...they sort of own us) :
7:30 - 9:00 - arrivals and free play with toys and staff
9:00 - 10:00 - breakfast
10:00 - 11:00 - outdoor activities and/or art projects
11:00 - 12:00 - circle time (i.e., reading, exercize, music, flash cards)
12:00 - 1:00 - lunch
1:00 - 2:00 - outdoor activities and/or indoor free play
2:00 - 4:00 - afternoon nap *
4:00 - 5:00 - wake-up time, afternoon snack
5:00 - 5:30 - get ready to go home
* Our infants naturally sleep on and off at will and our one-year-olds usually have an
additional morning nap.

We serve organic milk and/or filtered water with lunch, and children always have water throughout the day (water is served in assigned steel Thermos bottles). We also have “milk time” before nap. Please feel free to have your child bring lunch on any day that you think he or she may prefer to have a choice of their own. We work to accommodate any special diets.
Afternoon snacks are served after nap, examples being crackers and milk or fresh fruit and yoghurt or rice cakes and cheese, etc. (depends upon what the menu for the day has been).
Other provisions: We supply bibs, wipies diapering ointments, sunscreen and over-the-counter
medications (with parental permission) such as fever reducers and teething pain
About Our Book
For toddlers experiencing separation anxiety, CC Couchois' interactive book is available at Amazon or Barnes & Noble or via all E-books!
This book was inspired by a two-year-old little boy, Noah (his name is being mentioned with permission from his parents), who came to CC's House and had an extremely difficult time separating from his mommy. It was pretty hard on mommy too. There were books about this, but none involving the child in an interactive way. Thus, this book came into being. Speaking directly to the child and sharing illustrations, this little book has helped to provide much needed comfort and relief for many children, as well as parents, embarking on their daycare journey!
