Hi! Welcome to our home. My name is Lindsay. I am the primary caregiver at Amalia's Angels. I have been working with children for almost 20 years. I am a licensed family child care provider in the state of Maryland (LIC#159497), a licensed childcare director, and a preschool teacher. I'm also certified in CPR, first aid, and SIDS prevention.
My husband and I opened Amalia's Angels because we wanted to provide other families with high-quality child care in an enriching, loving home setting. We want your children to love being here as much as we love having them!
Community, respect, and kindness, and honesty are our core values. We believe that success and growth come from encouragement and praise. We place an emphasis on learning the social and emotional skills that will prepare your child for school and beyond. We provide an environment that supports free expression in a respectful manner and provides positive reinforcement. We encourage children to make appropriate choices and practice re-direction to help those who may need more guidance. Our goal is your child's happiness and success.
We believe that children learn best in a simple, natural, and clutter-free environment. We promote learning through intentional play that values process over product. Through our program, we offer opportunities for children to explore a variety of activities, such as: gardening, dance & yoga, Spanish, process art, music, gymnastics, ASL, and literature. We encourage children to participate in all activities, but we do not force children to do "circle time" or toddler worksheets. We love what we do and it shows!
We don't think of ourselves as just a home daycare, but rather as a professional childcare home. With over half of our house utilized exclusively for childcare, we make your child a priority. We have a beautiful mulched outside space surrounded by a 6' privacy fence, a large sunroom playroom, a spacious indoor play area for infants and pre-walking children, a separate art and meal space, and a nap room with cribs and toddler beds.
As a parent, you need and deserve to feel comfortable with your caregiver. At Amalia's Angels, we are pet-free and smoke-free, and we receive weekly professional house cleanings. Our inside and outside childcare areas are monitored with security cameras and we have a police-monitored security system, so you can be confident that your children are being cared for in a safe environment. Your children are in good hands with us!
