Kelly's Home Daycare

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

Covid-19 has had a profound impact on everyone’s lives. While we shelter in place, I’ve had to shut down the daycare. I miss the kids. A LOT. They are such amazing little humans full of curiosity, love and maybe a little sass🙃. It has taken some lasts (my last day with Alex), last chance for him to say goodbye to his friends. I miss seeing my kids and their awesome dances, personalities and growing minds. Miss you all and pray you are all staying safe. 😘😘

Even had a squirrel visitor! 🐿

Outside for a bit, colored shamrocks, strawberry milkshakes, go noodle. Trying to keep the fun going!!

Frankie walk-in and talkin.

New crayons, fun worksheets and stickers.

Happy Thanksgiving from these little turkeys!!

Halloween party pictures:). This year the weather was rough snowing 4 inches with bitter wind. Not good for our annual parade. We did sneak outside and it was not pleasant. We did pumpkin games, ‘disco’ dance party, decorating pumpkins and fun games. Kids and I had fun in their super cute costumes!

Annie dancing while coloring. Too cute not to share!

Making memories!! Learning about fall colors and dreaming it wasn’t 22 degrees outside:)

Merry Halloween! FYI... Pictures not fun in blizzard like conditions. Poor kiddos were like ~ nope nope nope.

Throwback to last year when it Did not SNOW! 🥶😡

Yay! Alex is back:). We’ve miss you buddy! Thank you Alex and family for the beautiful flowers. Now the boys finally outnumber the girls! Let the car races begin! 🚗🚙💨

Today is a very emotional day for me. Today, this little sweet, smart, feisty, independent girl is a Kindergartner and has graduated out of Kelly’s daycare. The career I chose is not understood by many, I always hear “you must have the patience of a saint”, or “how do you handle all those kids on your own!” But what they miss is that we become a family. Kids are siblings, families are extended families. We spend a LOT of time together and I love that I get to be part of their lives. I am blessed to have the opportunity to watch them grow and care for them. They share with me all the thoughts in their little heads. I get to be part of their milestones. This all makes goodbyes the worst. They’re gut-wrenching. These are my babies too and I am so happy to have prepared them to go out and stretch their wings!! But... it’s soooo hard to let go. We all become So attached! Not just me but my whole family and all their friends/daycare siblings. We’ve been by each other’s side day in and day out for 5 years!! Lots of tears as we watch this amazing girl go off to do great things. Good luck, Ella! We love you and miss you already. Move those mountains!!

Great weather, fresh air and lots of energy, perfect summer activity.

Perfect day, exploring nature, park, 80 degrees with puffy clouds & chasing butterflies.

Favorite park Friday!!!

Summer field trips and fun:)

Park and spray park in Barrington today. Smiles for days.

Garage Sale in our neighborhood special finds. Lots of walking makes for sleepy kids. Thanks @kcomino for the stuffies!!
