Our Mission is…

With Gods guidance and the amazing teachers He has sent to Free To Be Me, together we strive to provide a warm and loving environment that meets the needs of your child and family.  Taking care of children is our passion and we take joy and pride in it.  It is our responsibility to cultivate children’s delight in exploring, learning and understanding their world.  Each child is extremely special to us and it is our desire for all children to feel safe, secure, loved and accepted by their teachers and peers in our child-centered environment.  Free To Be Me offers a setting in which the parents and teachers establish a mutual trust.  This will help all of us to learn and grown while meeting the needs of the whole child, i.e. physically, intellectually, socially, emotionally and spiritually.  

Our Environment

Establishing Mutual Trust for Parent and Teachers – Meeting the Needs of the Whole Child

It is our desire for all children to feel safe, secure, loved, and accepted by their teachers and peers in our child-centered environment. Free To Be Me offers a setting in which the parents and teachers establish a mutual trust. This will help all of us to learn and grow while meeting the needs of the whole child (physically, intellectually, socially, and emotionally). I know with cooperation and good communication this can be an enriching and successful relationship for all of us. 

Our Vision

Teaching the Professionals of tomorrow

Our infant program is a loving and nurturing environment that offers you peace of mind knowing that your child is getting the best quality care possible. Our 30 years of experience and professional expertise with infants and children has given me the knowledge to understand the individual needs of each infant. Infants need to develop an emotional attachment and trust of their caregiver to help them become secure and confident in their growing and learning. This is key in our program.

It is our desire to team up with you and implement your wishes for your child’s needs and care. I believe that together we can raise a healthy happy baby and prepare them for their next step into their life and our preschool program.

Sweet Bees is a two year old classroom that teaches self-help skills which include potty training, feeding themselves, washing their hands putting shoes on, putting their own jackets on, etc. We also have various stations which include dramatic play, science, music, and art. They experience circle time each day with stories, puppets, flannel board stories, and music.

Class Schedule | Curricular Activities

We provide an age appropriate curriculum that is offered to help your child learn academic skills, as they are ready. Children have the opportunity to engage in many exciting centers in the classroom such as dramatic play, blocks, science, and a library area. They participate in daily circle time where the teachers read stories, sing songs, and encourage conversation among the children. Art projects the children create are always on display in the Busy Bees! Newsletters are sent home at the beginning of the month that inform you of the theme, letters, numbers, shapes, and a focused social behavior for the month. We ask that you at home follow through with what they have learned at school to help reinforce and partner with us in their learning.

What Parents are Saying

“Free To Be Me is amazing! The facility is in a former elementary school and the rooms are a lovely size. The director, Netti, is friendly and you can tell she loves her job and the kids who are there-I can’t tell you how many of them came running up to her to get a hug when I was there for my tour. The employees looked happy, the kids looked happy, the facility is clean and well run….top notch! They even have chickens!”

Joanna H.

“Free to Be Me is amazing. My first started with Netti when the daycare was smaller, and we have grown with her as her daycare grew, until all of my three kids were there. All of the teachers are loving, caring, wonderful people. The kids loved going there and often didn’t want to leave. It is nice too that there are enough kids that they are in different aged rooms. We moved out of the area and were so sad to leave since they had become like family. I highly recommend them.”

Kathryn V.

“Have known the owner for years. Would trust her with my kiddos & any one else’s. My boyfriend has two daughters who go there & love the time they spend with their teachers & helpers at Free To Be Me. Thank you Miss Netti, Amy, Jillian, Lisa, and Nancy!! I hope to get my son in there soon, but her wait list is always so long!”
