Anyone need a great daycare provider??

Truman's daycare provider has an opening!  He is at Prairie Pond Daycare...a home daycare that is run by Margaret Hurst.  She is AMAZING!!!

I just knew when I met her that we were a match.  She is a former midwife who also taught at an environmental alternative high school in Iowa.  Her husband is a professor of film at KU.  She has two kids of her own, one in college and one is a senior.

The actual daycare takes up the full basement of her home.  She has activity centers and spends a great deal of time with educational opportunities.  She is an environmentalist and her daycare is actually named for the large pond that she has in her backyard.  The pond is a daycare learning tool.  She is able to show the cycle of life, plant forms, etc.  (Don't is safely behind a fence that the kiddos can't get into!)

She keeps the daycare small to have the opportunity to be one-on-one as much as possible.  Right now she has Truman, a 2 year old girl, and a 2 1/2 year old boy.  She will be adding a 4 month old the end of March and a 4 year old in April.  She serves amazingly helpful and kid friendly meals.  She is super understanding of whatever "mommy" quirks you might have and is flexible and cares to make you feel like your rules are her rules.

If you are interested in getting more info just leave me a comment or shoot me an email.  I'm happy to give you more and her phone number etc.
