About Home Away From Home

"Committed to helping young children feel safe, happy and at home." 

Fun with the littles! 
Infants, toddlers and preschoolers enjoy daily outside time and story time, organic and scratch-made meals, snacks & baby food; simple art, science, math and music projects.

Infants are exposed to movement and sensory experiences that foster growth and development. HAFH provides a calming routine and peaceful environment for your baby. 

Toddlers have a toy room stocked with simple toys and many options for creative play: dress up, play kitchen, blocks and books; all allowing for fine and large motor skill development and social interactions. Toddlers also do yoga and music activities.

Preschoolers experience simple art and cooking projects as well as creative, open ended toys. We do lots of projects to encourage number and letter recognition for early reading and math prep; all in an organic and natural way. HAFH has a play structure, sandbox and garden for large motor development, fitness and fresh air fun. 

All ages grow and learn in a natural home setting with a gentle, encouraging, and creative approach.
