"This letter of reference is provided to families in search of high quality child care. I have known Heidi for two years and thank my lucky stars for that. She has been the perfect home day care provider for our daughter. As a licensed day care provider myself, I know what to look for. Heidi is totally kid-oriented. She engages the children in age-appropriate, safe, stimulating activities. Outdoor play is an important part of every day at Heidi's. She provides a large variety of large motor activities for the kids', and she play with them.
She also teaches important life-skills lessons, such as not talk to strangers. Heidi takes pictures of the kids, and does preschool activities with them such as calendar time, songs, crafts, books and computer. Heidi is very effective at fostering independence in children, being particularly skilled in early potty training. She broke my daughter of her thumb-sucking in a positive way. Heidi's no-nonsense manner sets explicit boundaries for children's behavior. She is firm but loving and kind.
Almost Mom Home Child Care is immaculately clean and free of clutter. Heidi is self-motivated, intelligent, and highly professional. She is a great communicator, and she is honest. I trust her with my precious child. Heidi can handle anything. Jim and I recommend her without reservation as the best home child care provider you'll ever find."
