February 2016 Provider of the Month - Good Shepherd Child Care Center, Inc.
Congratulations to Ilse Wilson and the staff at Fairyland Family Child Care in Sandy, Utah. They have been named Provider of the Month for August 2015, and they are the first home care provider to be honored through the new campaign!
Creating a fun, caring, healthy, and educational environment for children as they learn and grow is the first step to a lifetime of healthy development, and Ilse Wilson and her staff at Fairyland Family Child Care go above and beyond every day with the children in their care.
Wilson and her team do this through creative play, including spaces for playing with sand, water and mud; an outdoor music and art area; and a reading “nook”. They even have a fairy garden in the front yard!
Fairyland is also TOP Star-endorsed (an obesity prevention program in Utah) and Let's Move! Certified, making health and obesity prevention a clear goal.
At the beginning of each school year, the staff at Fairyland have parent-teacher conferences to set learning goals for the children in the upcoming year.
We’re grateful to exemplary providers like Wilson and her staff – they’re adding significant value to the development and overall health and well-being of the children in their care.
