Thank you for your interest in Tiny Blossoms Child Care. My name is Alison Hackett, owner, and mother to my 15 month old daughter Ashlyn.
I offer a safe, nurturing, home-based environment serving the Nassau and Suffolk area. We accept a limited number of children at a time, ensuring that your child will get a level of care that many larger day care facilities cannot provide. Our ratio of children to adults is always within state guidelines - and often even lower - to make certain each child receives top-quality care.
I am NYS State licensed as a home daycare facility and have met or exceeded all health and safety guidelines as per OCFS. Also, I am adult and child CPR certified and First Aid certified.
I accept children from 6 weeks old to 12 years old. I am also licensed to put children on and off the bus in the Sachem School District. Cayuaga and Gatelot are the closest elementary schools to my location.
At Tiny Blossoms Child Care we follow a preschool style curriculum. Every morning after breakfast we start with circle time for sharing and a review of the daily schedule. Our daily/weekly schedule will include developmentally-appropriate activities throughout the day, such as:
- Story Time
- Show and Tell
- Puzzles and Games
- Arts and Crafts
- Letters, shapes and colors
- Pre-Reading Activities
- Cooking and nutrition and food knowledge
- Indoor and outdoor play
- And much more
All of these activities are designed to teach through play and imagination, encourages individual play and how to work in a group. We will have nap time/quiet time everyday to let your child rest and recharge for the rest of the day.
Fresh made, nutritious breakfasts, lunches and snacks are provided daily. We also eat family style to encourage children to try new foods, especially ones that they have helped make, and learn the social aspects of eating in a group. Weekly menus will be posted on this site so you can discuss the menu with your child. We would like to encourage parents to not send food for their child, as if there is not enough for everyone, it can cause issues. If your child have special dietary needs, arrangements can be made. At Tiny Blossoms we can accommodate all dietary lifestyles, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. We do encourage your child to bring in a snack/treat to celebrate their birthday!!
You can rest assured that your child will be cared for with the utmost kindness, love and respect. We believe all children are precious gifts and we treat them as though they are our own.
Full-time, part-time and before and after school spots are available.
