Welcome to Forever Young Preschool and Daycare!
My name is Amy McCoy and I am a prodigy of In-Home Daycare. In Kindergarten, when my teacher asked me, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I told her, “A Daycare Lady!” I am now living that dream that started many years ago.
I feel blessed to have grown up in the Daycare world. I loved my two Daycare ladies like they belonged to me. I still have relationships with them to this day, and it is an experience I want to provide for other kids. In college, while working towards my Early Childhood education degree, I repeatedly wrote in my papers and shared in class that I didn’t want to be a teacher; I wanted to have my own in-home daycare! People thought I was crazy. I actually went on to teach Pre-School for the Mukilteo School District at their ECEAP Program for 5 years. It is there where I realized even more so what I wanted to do. I wanted to be able to have long term relationships with children and families. To be allowed to attend Birthday parties, baseball games, dance recitals, to apply sunscreen, to kiss their little cheeks, and get to know them as part of my life, and not just as my classroom. So here I am.
The motto for Forever Young is: Where the heart of the child stays forever young! This is a place where children’s innocence is welcomed, and their playful spirit is wanted every single day. This is a place that fosters their growth and development through hands on education, play, dreaming, silliness, laughter, fun, and lots of love. This is a place where the child does grow, but their heart stays forever young and free!
As a parent myself, I know how hard it to leave your child in an unfamiliar place; but rest assured because your child is in great hands here and in a loving environment. Forever Young is a safe place where your child will feel welcomed, special, loved, entertained and some days they may not even want to go home!
