The right choice for your child...
...and for you!
Welcome to "A Home Away From Home!" My name is Bobbi Florence. I run a licensed family child care home in southern Wisconsin and I am also a part-time Early Childhood instructor for Blackhawk Technical College. I strive to give children the "best of both worlds" -- preschool and home -- by providing a variety of learning activities, fun themes, and field trips while maintaining a family atmosphere.
My purpose in putting up this site is to share information with other child care providers, to "brag" on my program and my day care children, to share child care and family pictures with far-away relatives and friends, to learn HTML (the language of web pages), and to have fun! I am going to be trying to update this site in the near future (summer 2002), so please stop by again to view some of the changes/updates!
If you have a chance, please visit my other site -- an online "home" for the Coventry (Akron, Ohio) Class of 1978!
The children and I invite you to tour our online "home." As you walk through our site you will find these areas:
- Foyer. Tips for starting a family child care; marketing strategies for family child care programs.
- Office. My Parent Handbook (child care policies) -- feel free to use!
- Parlor. My qualifications for providing child care: education and experience
- Study. My views on preschool education, materials used, monthly theme (activities/ideas included), field trip information.
- Den. Our daily schedule. Check out what we do each day!
- Nursery. Coming Soon! Pertaining to the "wee" ones: homemade baby wipe recipe, safety issues, activity ideas, and links.
- Kitchen. All about the child care food program, our current weekly menu, and the "Recipe Book."
- Library. "Tricks of the Trade" -- Ideas that work with children!
- Play Room. Pictures of us at play, humor, witty sayings, and other fun "tidbits."
- Family Room. Family photos and "late-breaking" news about the Kastner-Florence family.
- Suggestion Box. Submit ideas for my website, or tell me what ideas you would like to see addressed!
- Bulletin Board. About my site: articles, reviews & awards.
- Back Porch. Links to other provider's pages, fun places for kids on the 'Net, and parents' resources.
