Our Goal & Philosophy

To see the children grow to their fullest potential by being supportive, nurturing and loving. As we bridge the gap from home to school, we strive to guide children positively, by helping them build their self-image and social skills in a loving home environment. We implement our curriculum to meet the developmental readiness of each child. The individual expression of each child will be encouraged and directed in ways that will build confidence and responsibility.

We believe this will allow each child to develop to his / her given potential. The child is encouraged to grow socially, physically and intellectually. The early years of a child’s life are important in developing skills for understanding the concepts of language, art, math, science, reading, and motor skills.

We will seek to form a close relationship with the parents or guardian of each child. As a primary caregiver, we believe that the parent is most familiar with the unique needs of their child. Therefore, we will maintain a supportive role to the parent and appreciate your valuable insight that will enable us to provide for each child.

Thank you for your interest and giving us the opportunity to serve you.


Our Story

My husband and I had our first child in September of 2004. After moving to Foster City California from Washington State, we planned to have our second son. In 2005, while pregnant I decided to go back to work, but after struggling to find a day care provider I trusted for my oldest son, I decided to get licensed by the state of California and open a day care myself.

With all of our family here in Oregon, we couldn’t wait to move back. We finally did in April of 2008. I was eager to reopen my day care in Oregon and get back into helping those little ones grow. With Nellie’s DayCare opening in May of 2008, nearly one month after moving to the state, I’m proud to be apart of so many children’s lives both past and looking into the future.
