Welcome to
Kid Care Brookie's Mom.

At Kid Care Brookie's Mom, child care has been a joyful experience since 1984.

The first question we are often asked is "Who is Brookie?" Brookie is our loving daughter and light of our lives. When she was born, my husband and I fell in love with being parents. We totally enjoyed the experience of raising Brookie ... teaching her to read, guiding her to the right types of food, protecting her and exposing her to so many things that have helped make her into an outstanding young lady. Because of all this we watched her grow from a baby, into a young adult. This was very, very rewarding for us. We never wanted it to end. But as you know as parents, children do grow up.

One day my husband and I looked at each other when Brookie was three years old and said, "Why does it have to end"? Why don't we use the parenting skills we have learned and are using everyday raising Brookie, to help other parents raise their children? So we set out about twenty eight years ago, to become licensed with the state of California and turned the same home where we were raising Brookie, into a place where we could help raise the children of other local Laguna Beach parents like your selves. 

Brookie is all grown up now. We must have done something right, because she is such a great young lady and works in our community. Often I look back at the more than 1,000 children who have gone through our child care center. It's been so rewarding for Steven and I to still be using most of the same techniques today, we used with Brookie. We are very proud to have been a small part of so many children growing up, becoming parents and working in the area. We would like to help your child too.

Nobody will care for your child better than we will ... every day!

Let us briefly explain our program, from a daycare center, a childcare center, babysitting to preschool and more.  

Our licensed preschool offers pre-writing, reading and math skills, a language literature program, creative arts, age-appropriate cooking class, gymnastics and movement experience. We provide delicious, nutritious meals and snacks for children, and Miss Sheila teaches our kids about manners, hygiene and appropriate peer interaction.

We offer both half day programs and full day programs. Miss Sheila’s educational background is in Early Childhood Education as well as having her credentials to be a Director in a preschool. Miss Sheila and Mr. Steven are both sensitive to the individual needs of young children.  We also work in conjunction with and according to the standards of the Laguna Beach / Orange County, CA, School Readiness Program.

KidCareBrookiesMom.com is a happy day care center and child development center with appropriate play experiences that contribute to the physical, social, emotional, intellectual and aesthetic development of the child.

Brookie is very proud of the loving environment we have created for local children. And we are glad to see that the experiences of parenthood live on, in our home everyday, through the children of Laguna Beach, California. We look forward to meeting your kids.

Our Daycare Program Includes 10 Main Individual Elements. Here's A Quick Overview:

Many of our competitors (and we don't feel we really have any) simply enroll your children without really explaining to the parent what their child care program consists of. At Kid Care Brookie's Mom, we want you to have the satisfaction of knowing exactly what your child is experiencing every day, every hour and every minute of the day. Here is an overview and later on in our website, we will explain these areas in greater detail:

 

  • Meal Time
  • Circle
  • Indoor Play
  • Free Play
  • Art Time
  • Gymnastics
  • Cooking Class
  • Sensory Development Tables
  • Quite Time
  • Open House
  • Movement Experience
     

Our program is designed to give your children the child development tools they need to grow and develop into productive members of our local Laguna Beach community and society around the world. Today's children will become the leaders of tomorrow if they learn the basics when they are young!

    watch them?
14. How much time do children spend outside every day?
15. What happens if my child gets ill?

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Something For The Children, Something For The Parents.
SEE BELOW!

After almost 30 years in the Daycare industry, we probably understand better than most, what it takes to last all these years.

While we know there are a lot of companies like ours in the Laguna Beach Area, we really don't consider them competition.

You see most Daycare Centers in the area do a pretty good job of watching and protecting your children. 

What makes us different is while watching and protecting your children is essential for any Center, it's our goal to also train them and teach them skills that which will help them grow in the coming years.

In addition to the elements of our program displayed on this page, we encourage you to checkout the photos on our "Events & Activities" page. You see at Kid Care Brookies Mom, we believe that everyday is an opportunity to help shape and mold the children who attend our Center. So we try very hard to include regular events and activities that create "real life" experiences for every child.

Please take a few moments and review the elements of our program on this page, then we encourage you to compare us to other local Centers.

EVENTS & ACTIVITIES

The educational world agrees that children learn by doing. They copy their parents, they copy their friends and they imitate people they see on TV.

So one of our key philosophies is to create environments where the children will experience and learn about annual events they will participate in all of their lives. At Kid Care Brookie's Mom, we use holidays, birthdays and special occassions to teach children social skills and more.

When your children come home, expect them to tell you stories of the things they did today ...then just sit back and enjoy the memories.

If you know of a specal day or special event coming up in your child's life, we really want to know. And the sooner you tell us the more special we can make the day for him or her. Just send us a text and we'll take it from there!

"What a find! Kid Care Brookie’s Mom has been an incredible resource for our family. 

Our son started when he was two and has grown so much in the last year, learning words, letters, numbers, how to be a global citizen and so much more. Beyond the outstanding curriculum is the warmth and kindness of truly gifted caregivers. 

Miss Sheila is even available for babysitting and offers special evening events like 'Parents Night Out.' Thank you, Miss Sheila!"

Bedtime Routine to Give your Kids a Chance to Tell you About their School Day 

"Ok, it's time to start getting ready for bed.  After your bath, brush your teeth and get your pajamas on.  It's getting late."

If you have a bedtime routine, pat yourself on the back.  Bedtime routines are so vital, especially for young children.  Consider adding one more step to your bedtime routine.  Give your kids a chance to tell you about their school day.

Remember that if your child is in school all day, your teacher is with your son or daughter for an average of 30 hours a week.  That's almost the equivalent of a full work week.  You've missed quite a bit of time with your child.  

Make an effort to keep the communication free flowing.  If you set good habits while your child is young, it'll be easier to talk about just anything as the years pass. For starters, don't ask yes or no answers.  You don't want to establish a nightly Q & A, but rather two-way communication.

Sometimes "tell me about your day" doesn't generate much conversation.  You could begin with, "tell me five things that happened today; recess and lunch don't count."  That is usually a great ice breaker.   Kids learn real quickly that if you don't ask, they're not telling.

In addition to asking what was for lunch, ask who your child sat next to.  Who did they play with at recess?  What did that play during recess?  Was anyone sick today?  Did anything funny or embarrassing happen to anyone in school today? 

Sometime it is difficult to keep track of the specials.  By specials I mean: gym, music, art, computer lab, etc.; the extra classes that usually take place with a different teacher outside of the main classroom.  Keep a cheat sheet if you need to; ask what activity they did in gym.  

If you can get your child to tell you about someone who may have had a hard time (in gym, with math, with reading aloud, etc.) it is a great segue for a life lesson in difficulties and hurt feelings.

It really doesn't matter what you talk about; it's more important that you talk.  Make talking about your kid's day a regular part of the bedtime routine, you'll be surprised what you learn!
