My name is Malissa Elgan and I have over 12 years of daycare experience. I started working in a daycare center in 2004 when I graduated high school. Shortly after I graduated from college I opened up my in home daycare.
I have been married since 2008 to Steve. I have two beautiful children Steven and Brooklynn. In my free time I enjoy working out, going to movies, swimming and going to country music concerts.
Having my in home daycare has been such a blessing over the last 7 years. I have been able to see several kids come here as infants and learn so much before kindergarten.
I believe that children need to learn from a very early age. However, at the same time have fun and be in a safe and loving environment. My goal as a Licensed Childcare Provider is to provide a daycare that is educational, organized, clean, fun and affordable to families in Nebraska. I strive to provide as much individualized care as possible and to have open communication with every family.
I graduated form UNO with a Bachelors in Child, Youth and Family Studies. I also have worked in daycare centers as a toddler and preschool teacher as well as a Assistant Director. I am also a member of ChildCare Share.
Early Learning Program
Each week I create a fun theme that we explore. Everyday we have an art project that is related to our theme. We also review our shapes, colors, numbers and letters on a daily bases. We also count in French, Spanish, German and English everyday. Children three years and older work on learning how to trace numbers, letters and also learn how to write their name everyday. We also play many learning games throughout the day to ensure as many opportunities and different styles of learning so that every child can learn in a way that works best for them.
At the time of an interview, I will give you my contract and handbook which list all my policies.
