My name is Tonja. I am a 35 year old mother of a hilarious 4 year old boy. I have my Bachelors Degree in Psychology. I have worked as a Sociotherapist / Youth Care Professional and as a Teachers Assistant at the Hillside Children's Center for 11 years. I also coached Greece Girls Travel Soccer for several years. I love doing anything active and creative.
Our home is conveniently located off of Vintage Road (just east of 390) in Greece NY. It is a safe, quiet neighborhood, on a low traffic circle (perfect for daily walks and bike rides). Safe, clean, creative environment. Private, fully fenced yard with playground, playhouse, lots of toys, and even a sidewalk racetrack for bikes!
I believe in having a structured, yet flexible, and (most of all) fun environment. I want your children to be excited every day! And, I want you to be at ease and assured about the safety and wellbeing of your children!
When your children arrive in the morning, we will have daily activities that focus on developing fine and gross motor skills as well as appropriate social skills (story time, music, dance, crafts, etc). We will take walks and play outside everyday (weather permitting).
Having worked as a teachers assistant for 11 years, education is very important (and fun) for me. Along with my son, I will teach your children the ABC's, 123's, shapes, colors, etc. We will also follow their school curriculum.
Please keep in mind that I make sure that my program and environment is safe enough, fun enough, and developmentally stimulating enough so my own son can thrive and be happy everyday! So, rest assured that I will maintain that standard for your childen as well!
Please call, text, or email us any questions you might have or to schedule a time and date for a tour.
You won’t be be disappointed!
