I'm a home daycare provider located in Wauconda IL (Liberty Lakes Sub.)

New day, new park with my little explorers. Working on our park manners, have to say these kids were pretty well behaved!! #kellysdaycare

Working together to build towers with friends. #kellysdaycare

Library yesterday with these 2 cuties. We did crafts, coloring, counting, sliding and flying. #kellysdaycare #waucondapubliclibrary

Getting Brayden from the bus and having a little snow fun. Fun with alphabet letters and drawing/coloring. #kellysdaycare

We were out to dinner. I wanted one good smiley picture and he was a completely normal 13 yr old smart butt. I think I like this better than the smile.

Playdoh, towers and new library books kind of day today :). Hope our missing friends are enjoying the warmth of Florida! They’re are missed!! #kellysdaycare

When Haley and Claire are off school we can go to the library with the kiddos. #kellysdaycare 📚 Thanks Wauconda Area Library for a fun morning! @ Wauconda Area Library

Pick a game to play with Miss Kelly kind of morning. #bestjobever #ilostbutthatsokay #kellysdaycare

Happy Birthday, Alex!! Loved being able to celebrate milestones! Thanks for the treat bags:)

Welcome to the crew Ivy! Another dog to love ❤️. We’re all sad winter break is over and Haley is back to school. She may have made some awesome snow cones for her little friends. Lots of learning and fun happening :)

Learning all about the letter ‘Aa’ is tough. It calls for a dance party after. To the ‘trolls’ song 🙂.

Outside with Haley...

Cold but they don’t care. Little bit of running around is good:). Haley is the best with the great ideas.

Play doh, grocery shopping, playing puppy dogs, and helping Haley with the leaves. Keeping active :)

Who needs a zoo? We have many animals here and they are ‘wild’!! 🐼🦊🦁🐾

Today: Library with Haley:)

Today is pizza making day! Dollar spot at target for the win!!

Happy Halloween from Kelly’s Daycare!

Today, leaf collages. Fun!!

Collecting fall leaves and items for our leaf collages & leaf monsters. We saw mushrooms (no touch!) and pretty butterflies (again, no touch!) Lots of touching crunchy leaves, soft leaves and soft fluffy's to blow into the air. Exploring the outside on a nice fall day. Hardly any leaves have fallen yet we may need to try again in a couple of weeks. After the bees and mosquitos have reduced in numbers, HA!

Peek into my day! What it takes to take 5 toddlers to the park. Pack while they're playing (taking several breaks to referee sharing, taking turns, use your walking feet, please stop doing that to your friends). I pack water, snacks, small first aid kit, hand sanitizer, baby wipes, sunscreen, phone, stroller). Get all the children to go potty before we leave. At this point they all know it's park time and amp up the excitement (harder to keep hands to self). Then put on 10 socks, 10 shoes, 5 jackets while they are out of their minds excited to go. (me first, me first!!!) I get the two littles secure in the stroller and remind the 2-4 yr olds the rules (walk behind the stroller, only run in grass and stop at streets to hold hands to cross). We slllloooowwwwlllly walk to the park. "I see it, I see it"!! We finally arrive! They scatter and I'm reminding them to do the things we know are the right size for them (no rock wall, no spider web, only one Miss Kelly and we need to be safe!) 2 seconds later one of them has to go potty 😣, we just went 15 mins ago. There is always a 'work' truck hanging out by the park. Usually a worker using the restrooms at the park. This annoys me because I don't know or trust them at all. We all go to the disgusting potty. We make it out of there, just for the next one to tell me they also need to go potty. So in we go, all of us. They squeeze something out to make the trip worth it. I make the third go potty just so we don't have to come back, lol! Meanwhile, the littlest one is afraid of the toilet flush and is screaming. All other 4 toddlers have their hands over their ears. We go back out, slides and smiles, then the 'workers' decide it's a great time to mulch the surrounding area. Kids are distracted and one of them is jumping on the mushrooms (wet shoes, several reminders to not jump fall on deaf ears), and down they go. I'm wrangling the four of them and comforting the fallen (who seems more surprised and embarrassed than hurt). We then return to the stroller use baby wipes on our hands because we love to dig in the mulch, hand sanitizer, then get our water and snacks. Just an FYI... kids cannot walk and eat at the same time🤣. We take the trail back to see 'nature' and a huge rottweiler that is barking at us menacingly. We made it back! We all had an adventure that's for sure!! Making memories with friends!! Lunch and nap time to follow. The fresh air and walking should make everyone sleepy.

Perfect day for park and making monsters =)

[09/07/18]   We have been super busy here at Kelly's Daycare. As the big kids get back to school, we're getting back to our routine! Everyone misses Haley and her motivating prizes!
Morning table work (shape and color games, play doh, interactive worksheets, coloring, puzzles & flash cards!), free play with dramatic play, books, cars, trains, blocks, etc. Learning to share, take turns and all things about interacting with our peers. Circle time is a favorite for the kiddos (makes for quick clean up!) where we learn calendar, weather, counting, letters, rhyming, colors & shapes. They raise their hands and take turns answering. We read books and sing songs. Some favorites are Froggy, Bear hunt, and Pete the Cat.

Luau fun with the kiddos. Plus puzzles and balloons and an old friend to share it with! We've missed you Brynley! Good Luck in Kindergarten!

Princess and super hero tea party with Miss Haley. Surely she doesn't really neeeeeddd to go into 6th grade! We're going to miss her!

Fun day today with Miss Haley!! Park, swimming and dance exercises. We love when Miss Haley is home!

Litte fun at the park this morning =)

Summer fun with these little crazies.

Magnatiles, park and Going on a Bear Hunt kinda day :)

Monday's weather was perfect 80 and sunny! Park, jumpy, small pool 🤣, lots of outdoor games.

Always keeping busy 😊 Some pictures from the past few months... lots of fun with these darlings.

This sweet girl came here in 2016 as a shining star with a pretty awesome Frozen rendition. She's stolen all our hearts with her outgoing personality. Always entertaining and her ability to create a world of fun through imagination and play is captivating. Many tears shed as she leaves Miss Kelly's for Kindergarten next year. I know she'll do great!! See ya later (not goodbye) Bryn! We will sure miss you!! 😘😘

Fun at Kelly's Daycare!
