(Mandated precautions are over but we are taking the extra step to help reduce illnesses in general and have kept these guidelines in place)
Several modifications have been made in order to help slow/stop the spread of COVID-19 and aid with social distancing. Social play is an important aspect of daycare. We still have play! But with more caution and organization. Many of the below items will continue after COVID as we have found them beneficial to the daycare.
Most toys have been removed from the common play area and stored for rotation.
All hard-to-clean toys (stuffed animals) have been completely removed.
Specific toys put each day and thoroughly cleaned at the end of the day.
Tables and chairs spread out for more distance during crafts and snack/lunch times.
Outdoor activities increased.
Snacks and lunch outdoors when weather permits.
Windows open for ventilation when weather permits.
Handwashing routines increased.
Hand sanitizer at the front door for all to use.
Daily temperature checks for children.
Parents drop children off at front door; they do not enter.
Increased cleaning procedures implemented.
We continue to monitor CDC guidelines in order to provide the best possible and safest possible care for our customers.
Little Fox Daycare strives to provide a healthy, happy and safe environment for the children who attend our daily adventures. We let children explore and learn through discovery and creativeness, and at the same time provide encouraging guidance and positive structure.
Meet our Staff
Founder & Owner Hillary is certified in child and infant CPR/First Aid. She is a previously certified EMT and CPR and First Aid instructor. She also worked in the recreation field for over 20 years, directing summer camps, after school programs, preschools, swim lessons and kids classes. Hillary has experience caring for infant twins, as a long term nanny to a preschooler and several years as a babysitter for school aged children. She has a preschooler of her own and loves spending time with him and watching him grow!
"We couldn’t have made a better decision when choosing to have our then 6 month old son attend Little Fox Daycare. From day one Hillary was welcoming, caring, and loving towards our family. She is thoughtful in the decisions she makes for the kids, activities are structured and fun, and she is willing to work with families to support schedules and the frequent changes that come along with little ones. We are so grateful for Hillary and absolutely recommend Little Fox Daycare to any family looking for someone to care for their child."
I am honored and grateful to have my daughter attending Little Fox Daycare. She has been there a few days a week since she was 5 months old and has thrived in the environment. She enjoys circle time, stories, dancing to music, water play when it's warm outside, and healthy well-balanced meals. I am thankful I don't have to worry about her while she is at daycare and the pictures Hillary sends throughout the day in the app always bring a smile to my face. If you are looking for a safe, warm, loving environment with other wonderful kiddos and a great provider, Hillary & Little Fox is the place for you. We will miss all the Little Foxers and Hillary when my daughter transitions to preschool!
