Why Bundles of Joy verses a Day Care Centers?

Why Bundles of Joy and why not a Child Care Centers in Bayside?bayside bees

Bayside Bundles of Joy is a credited In-home day care program with its obvious advantages over a Bayside day care center. To begin with, Bayside child care program provides a safe, nurturing and homelike atmosphere. Home day care offers a homey environment where less chaos and lots of attention and hugs are part of the norm. This is in sharp contrast to a bayside day care centers which, no matter how child-friendly you make them, still seem busy, institutional, and have higher adult-to-child ratios.

Here, with a healthier alternative of fresh home cooked nutritious meals, you do not have to worry about your precious falling ill. Unlike us, at day care centers, pre-cooked processed commercial food is served to the children, thus making them susceptible to poor health.



The opportunity to play with and learn from other children is something both home daycares and centers offer that nanny care can’t. But unlike centers, which tend to group kids by age, we usually have mixed-age groups, which more closely mirror many families and may help your child feel comfortable around older kids and build social skills.

Moreover, Child-to-staff ratios are important because too many children and not enough adult supervision means your child is likely to get less of the one-on-one interaction that he needs and deserves. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the child-to-staff ratio for children younger than 12 months should be 3 to 1 no matter what kind of childcare you have. And we provide just that, compared to the disappointing 10 to 1 ratio at day care centers. At Bayside Bundles of Joy, each child is acknowledged as an individual and lesson plans are created to stimulate children’s development of their language, cognitive, personal/social, and physical skills and abilities.

Bundles of Joy has the largest private outdoor playground in Bayside, thus encouraging outdoor activities to enable the children to interact with others and learn new things everyday while providing a medium for healthy physical development! Sliding, jumping, running, balls, jump rope, racing, water balloons, catch, bubbles, follow the leader, squirt bottles, ride-on toys, wagons, tunnels, safe water toys, organized games, painting, exploring nature/weather, soccer, and more all delight our bundles. There are slides, tricycles, toys, swings available and we often set up our own bounce house to double the fun. Furthermore for indoor activities we have story-time, Legos, circle-time, tumbling exercises, Lincoln Logs, music and dancing, dress up, play food, interactive stuffed animals, cars/trucks/planes, arts and crafts, puzzles, flash cards, animals/dinosaurs, trains, musical instruments, balls, dolls and Barbie’s for the girls, various learning toys, musical instruments, various games, Mr. Potato Head, bean bag toss, blocks, beads and string, song games, play dough, coloring, sing along story books, painting, science, board games, puppets, Simon-says, and singing, and so much more.
