Diana' s Playhouse currently has a FULL-TIME OPENING for a toddler, 20 months or older.
Diana runs a home based day care located in the Crocker Highlands neighborhood minutes from both 580 and Highway 13.
My 2 year old daughter has been with Diana since she was 4 months old, and I could not be happier with her experiences at Diana's Playhouse.
Every day is an adventure. Diana constantly exposes the children to new and age appropriate activities.They paint, do art projects, mold Playdoh, learn ABCs, numbers and colors, do puzzles, and play with bubbles and water.
There is an endless variety of pretend areas - the kitchen, big blocks to build a fort, dolls, and an outside area with a climbing stucture and sand box or rice table.
But, most importantly, Diana is loving and nurturing. She sits on the floor with the kids and gives them her full attention. She read books to them and plays music.
She is always on top of a wet diaper or a runny nose and she provides nutritious snacks and lunch.
I find Diana's Playhouse to be an exceptional place.
My 18-month old son has been thriving at Diana's Playhouse. It is run by Diana Brown, a lovely woman and mother of 3 children, including 6 year-old twin boys. Diana is a former social worker and the oldest child in a large family. She really loves children, and it shows by her interactions with those under her care; Diana is nurturing, loving, and playful. Diana is also mindful of each child's development and cares for them accordingly. My son is highly engaged and happy during his days with Diana. She taught him baby sign language before he started speaking, and he now listens to stories and learns new vocabulary and concepts from her daily. His days are varied, and Diana always has age-appropriate toys or activities for him to do. On any given day, his experiences could include painting, play-dough, reading, stringing beads, puzzles, dress-up, listening to music, singing, playing with trains, identifying letters and numbers, counting and sorting objects, and playing at a water or rice table. She often plans new experiences for the children. Diana also provides healthy snacks and meals that are mostly organic.
