Hi, my name is Megan Jeffrey and I have been doing in-home childcare for 11 years. I am very dedicated to promoting the growth and development of a child. When a child has the proper care, they are going to be a lot happier, and in return you are going to have a healthy child!
I have been blessed with five beautiful children. Savana, Landan, Adisan, Jaxsan and Gracyn. Working with children is something I love to do, being able to do it in my own home with my children is even better! I am looking forward to meeting and building friendships with different families in Omaha. This has truly been a dream come true.
While children are in my care, I will provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of young children through active learning.
Play and hands-on activities are a child’s way of working and learning. Children learn from each other by experimenting and exploring without worrying whether there is a right or wrong way to do things.
The development of initiative and self-reliance is encouraged in an atmosphere of trust and structure. I realize that each child is a unique individual and must be appreciated and valued for his or her individuality in all areas.
I strongly believe that these children are our future, and as an Early Childhood Educator, I have that chance to make a difference in the life of a child.
I have been working with children since I was nine years old. I grew up in a small town, where everyone knew your name. I spent several nights and weekends babysitting. I was also a camp counselor at various church camps.
I attended Wayne State College to pursue a degree in Early Childhood Education. Throughout college I had the opportunity to work in the lab school on campus, as well as working as an infant/toddler teacher at a local childcare center. Those were both great learning experiences for me. In May of 2003, I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education.
Following graduation we moved to Omaha, and I began working for Omaha 2000 ECEC and later Goddard. Five years ago, after our son was born, my heart was telling me I really needed to stay at home and have my own in-home daycare. I have always had the philosophy if it is meant to be, it will be. Well my dream is now a reality! This is the best job I have ever had, it’s so rewarding, I cherish every day. I am looking forward to what’s ahead!
Early Learning Program:
Young children enjoy a structured schedule that allows for flexibility. Every day is full of fun and learning! We work on everything from infant signing to our ABC’s and 123’s. We sing, dance, read stories, dress-up and just have fun being goofy, yet learning at the same time!
My policies are outlined in my Parent/Provider Handbook. If you are interested please call or email me, and we can schedule an appointment to discuss your childcare needs.
