Welcome To Our Home
My name is Jeannine Brenner and I’m a native Leucadian. I’m a mom of 2 wonderful, curious, loud, messy, silly, sweet little boys. My husband is Gregg, and he’s my partner in marriage, in parenting, and now in our home daycare program. While you won’t probably see him here often, since he works out of the home during the week, he is a big part of what we do- preparing a home and program that is for your children and mine.
When I began this venture I couldn’t help viewing things from a parents’ perspective- it’s who I am! I wanted to have a home that was warm, safe and comfortable for children to come to while away from their parents. My goal is for it to be a place to which your child LOVES to come, that is loving, nurturing, respectful, and filled with experiences that are natural- natural in terms of development, and natural in terms of the world we live in. I’ve also called upon my past experiences in education to come up with a program and curriculum that epitomize what it is that I want my children to learn at this age, and what I believe is important for them to succeed in today’s world. As you read on, you’ll see that nature is the foundation of my home daycare. When we moved into this home this past year, I realized that this space was the perfect location for my concept of a nature and play based program.
Prior to leaving my career as a clinical social worker for my role as a mom, I was working in the schools as a child and family therapist. I’ve designed and facilitated parent workshops about family issues that we all face when raising our young children, most recently including “how to raise self-esteem in our kids,” and “effective discipline.” I’ve worked in numerous areas of child welfare over the past 15 years. You could say that working with children is my passion. I hope this passion is evident!
I appreciate the opportunity to get to know your family, and offer you a service that makes your life as a parent just a little bit easier.
