Miss Jen's Home Daycare and Preschool
About Miss Jen
"We love South O! I'm a Mom of 3, raising my kids in South Oceanside, CA. I've been doing childcare since 2001 and love what I do. My husband is a UPS Driver. We love the beach and all of the things our beautiful community has to offer.
-Miss Jen ❤
Jennifer Kloosterman has been running her licensed in-home Family Child Care since 2012. She is operating a small license with a capacity of 8. Her program includes a Harvest of the Month Curriculum, Mother Goose Time Preschool Curriculum, Dance 'N Beat Dancing, Cosmic Kids Yoga, Sparks after school curriculum for school-age kids, and activities that have been shared by moms, teachers, and others around many online communities.
Health and education are very important to Jen. She uses organic as much as possible and will shop around to find the best organic options for her day-to-day necessities. She is working on a farm-to-table/garden-to-table menu full of locally grown organic fruits and vegetables. This food is fed to the children that attend. Cleaning products include Seventh Generation, Honest Company, and Dr. Bronners! The water served is Carlsbad Alkaline water.
After obtaining her Associate Teaching certificate in Early Childhood Education at Mira Costa College in 2003, her teaching experiences have had her teaching at La Petite Academy with the 4's and at KinderCare in the toddler and 2's. She has continued her education through the YMCA Childcare Resource Services in the Child Care Initiative Program. With these experiences and many other trainings under her belt, she is striving to provide the most up-to-date methods for early childhood education, health, safety, and nutrition.
Spending time outside is very important to Miss Jen and the children that attend. Spending more than an hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon, they do things such as gross motor play, sensory, dramatic play, science, and gardening. The garden is maintained using organic material and recycled material. Her goals are working towards adapting her garden to include composting, saving rainwater, and having an organic-rich flower, fruit, and vegetable garden.
Miss Jen is dedicated to her passions. Her plans are to continue offering drop-in and as needed child care, teaching a preschool program during the week, hosting and participating in events that bring the community together with live music, shared food and fun for the kids, host parent's night out, provide child care for school-age children that include before/after school care, offering opportunities for field trips, cooking, music, dance, art, science, technology, video games, and math, hosting and participating in mommy meetups.
