**Located North of Metcalfe village and East of Greely
Hi my name is Chelci Smith. I have two kiddos of my own that Iím crazy about and who have inspired me to make caring for them and others my career. Iím licensed through Metcalfe Home Daycare and have been open since December 2018. I currently have 4 including my own in my care and have another joining us in September. We are hoping for one more friend over the age of 2 to join us!
I love to cook and the kids eat a variety of beloved childrenís favorites (grilled cheese) to my favorite recipes they seem to always love too (butter chicken anyone?). I believe everything in moderation is important and love to keep it real. I want everyoneís experience to feel like the comfort of home.
We frequently go for walks around my quiet street and look for Animals, trees and other exciting things in the area. My formal education is in Earth Science and I always find ways to bring that background to my work. I am always encouraging learning about nature with the kids. When we donít walk we go outside daily in my large yard. I have toys for all ages, a big play structure for the older kids, water/sand table, lots of cars, trucks and ride on toys. We also are learning about gardening and how plants grow and the kids will have the benefit of harvesting this fall.
Hours of 7-5pm. Possibly of before/after school care if that is what you need. Busses for local schools run right by the house daily. I can confirm Castor Valley and Iím sure there are others.
Lunch and 2 snacks

I have record check and Standard C level CPR. I have two children of my own and we are a smoke free, pet friendly home. Let me know if you might like to come join us and we can discuss further. References available.
