My name is Amy McCoy and I am the owner and operator of Forever Young Daycare!
My husband and I purchased our home in August of 2011, with the intentions of me ending my teaching job in June 2012, and pursuing my dream of being a "Daycare Lady"! Since our purchase, we have renovated our downstairs to make it completely kid friendly, and have been operating our Daycare since September 2012!
Forever Young is located in the downstairs of our home. With a separate entrance, a door right out to our playground, a huge classroom/playroom, a child friendly bathroom, and a kitchen! Everything for the kids is downstairs!
I run Forever Young much like a preschool. There is no extra charge for our preschool program and curriculum. Our day follows a schedule like a preschool classroom would, and all activities are made developmentally appropriate for your child, even if they are not of the preschool age!
I am a licensed provider through the State of Washington's Department of Early Learning and serve families with children birth to 5 years old at this time. I also am able to care for children who attend Terrace Park Elementary School for Before School Care. I have been caring for kids for over 20 years through babysitting, volunteering, Long term Nanny jobs, and teaching Pre-School.
My hours are 7:00am - 5:00 pm.
Breakfast, Lunch, and an Afternoon Snack will be served, I serve healthy, kid-friendly meals! We normally eat family style, with children learning healthy portion sizes, independence, teamwork, and responsibility. Something fun I do for the kids is "Fun Finger Food Friday". It is an opportunity for new foods to be tried in small portions as well as add some fun in to our meal times. We even have a fun song that we sing!
All the details of Forever Young can be found in our Parent Handbook. I recommend reviewing it before contacting me about care, and then upon enrollment we will review it together.
