Welcome to Just Like Home Childcare & Preschool and Thank-you for your interest! We've been Licensed in White Salmon since 1999. We offer full time, part time, and drop in care as well as preschool.
I offer care for children ages Infant - 12 years old. We only take infants on a full time basis.
As a parent myself, I understand it can be a difficult time choosing a childcare that you are comfortable with and I understand that completely. I would like to take a moment to let you know that I realize that childcare , just like any other business is a choice, and it is extremely important that you and your child feels respected and cared for at Just Like Home and at the same time understands that there are rules for the safety and well being of all the children that I provide care for.
We have tried to keep our rates very reasonable; there's no sense in working all day just to have your most of your paycheck go for childcare costs. We've got some great "perks" for choosing Just Like Home for your childcare needs, read more here.
We are proud to offer your family high quality care with an extensive amount of one on one that your child just wont receive in a center. At Just Like Home, your child is able to build a relationship with myself as well as our Assistants. We don't have a lot of staff turnover here, so your child knows who will be caring for them day after day. This helps children be more secure in their environment.
We are also the only childcare in White Salmon to offer evening and night time care as well and are currently open 24 hours to help the parents in our community.
When you place your child here, you have entered into an agreement with me for the benefit of your child. Our primary goal is to support each child in a safe and loving home that builds self esteem, encourages home living skills, and actively promotes each child's sense of curiosity and discovery.
We believe that children learn through play in a structured environment. We provide both teacher initiated activities and also encourage child initiated activities. We have a nice large, clean indoor playroom loaded with learning activities like manipulative's, blocks, arts and crafts, reading area, imaginative play, and so much more.
We are blessed to have a gigantic outdoor play area and have begun to focus on a more natural playscape outside. Just Like Home, Inc is proud to have an outdoor playscape that is also a "Certified Wildlife Habitat" through the National Wildlife Federation. Please see our pictures page for lots of pictures of both inside and out. Read all about our philosophy's on our "About Us" page.
I know in the past when my own kids have been in childcare, the one that you choose truly makes all the difference in the world! It truly does make it much easier on everyone involved if you as a parent can go to work and not worry all day long about your child! So again, thank-you for your interest and if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
