About Me

Hello! My name is Donna. Most little ones call me Aunt Donna. I am the proud owner and provider of Busy Bear Daycare. We are a state licensed, family friendly, Christian, in-home daycare. My husband of 25 years and our 5 children share in the care of all little ones that enter our home. Our daycare has been open for 22 years. My focus and interests are in raising my children and the children who enter my home.

Philosophy

I am dedicated to provide quality care in a stimulating, safe, healthy, child friendly, learning environment. I believe strongly in molding and modeling independence, respect for self and others and building strong peer relationships. I maintain a    setting that keeps all children safe, healthy and learning. Above all, I believe in building good character and school readiness.

Experience

My experience includes working with people of all ages and disabilities. I know limited sign language as well. I have       counseled and taught. The following are my accomplishments:

  • State Licensed since 1995
  • CNA Certified
  • Infant/Child CPR and First Aid Certified along with 6 other family members
  • 12 hours+ Continuing Education in Early Childhood Development
  • Associates in Early Childhood Education
  • Bachelors in Human Services
  • Masters in Business Management
  • Advanced Studies in special education and teaching

Early Learning Program

My educational program incorporates several different learning styles all in 3 levels of preschool, to create a curriculum that meets the needs of ages 2 through 6.  I reinforce playtime activities within my curriculum in which I feel can be the root of lifelong abilities that help children to cope, learn and to become all that they can be. Furthermore, I implement these     learning skills in our everyday learning experiences.

Policies

If interested, please call or e-mail me to set up an interview. An interview consists of a tour of the daycare, review and     discussion of the parent handbook, meeting me and my family, time for questions and answers and a “Welcome Pack” to take home with you.

We have sent our children to Donna for two years now. We have a 2.5 year old and 7 month old twins. Donna is an exceptional caregiver and has always treated our family with a level of love and kindness I would not have expected from a 3rd party caregiver. Her home is clean, she is very organized, and she runs a “tight ship”, which we love (especially as it becomes more and more evident in new skills and good behavior from our toddler at home!) I rely on Donna for parenting advice and feel confident in the happiness and safety of my children when we drop them off in the morning. I really can’t say enough good things about the care our children have received from Donna. We were lucky to find her.

Donna and her family were a perfect fit for our family. We had as many as three of our children at a time under Donna’s care and supervision. Busy Bear daycare was very, very organized. Each of our children were given age appropriate care. The pre-school curriculum provided by Busy Bear was both convenient by being in-home and prepared our now grade schooler quite well. Donna was extremely dependable which was important for two working parents. Most importantly Donna (and her family) genuinely loved and cared for our children. We would still have our children at Busy Bear if it wasn’t for us moving out of Omaha.
