What We’re All About

Our day will be filled with plenty of free playtime both inside and outside, as well as a daily walk, circle time, games, stories, rest time and crafts.  A natural, homemade and organic lunch and afternoon snack will be served daily.

Your child will be cared for in a warm, home environment, having the opportunity to gather food from the garden, help bake our snack muffins or rolls, and take part in preparing meals and cleaning up!

Lori Dehlin

I am a mother of five almost adult daughters, with two adult and two teenager daughters living at home.  I worked for 11 years as an Assistant Kindergarten Teacher at Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School.    I am a Certified Home Child Care Provider. Now I am excited to be offering my own home child care program.  

I feel very passionate about caring for young children.  I love working with small groups because I feel as if I have a better opportunity to focus on each child individually and the group as a whole. Being able to offer care all day and all year long is a bonus to families.  I feel a homey setting is easier to come to for the young child.

Opening Hours

I am available Mondays through Fridays from 8 to 5pm. If you are in need of part time care I ask that the days run all together and start on a Monday or end on Fridays.  This is because it is difficult to fill a space in the middle of the week.  If you need just one day of care, let's talk.  I might have an available space!

I will be closed for the week of all bank holidays (4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and Memorial Day) as well as the day of and the day after Halloween and the Friday before Easter through the week following Easter Sunday.
