Welcome to Sherk Family Daycare Home. We offer childcare for children ages four weeks to eighteen months. Our goal is to provide a safe, caring, homelike atmosphere for your child while at the same time providing for their physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development. Your child will receive quality personal and individualized care in a warm and loving home, where they can feel safe and happy and can build a positive self image.
Our home is designed to provide both a nurturing home atmosphere along with large dedicated areas for the children to actively learn and grow. Our home offers a stimulating environment with spacious rooms giving each child an exciting world full of opportunities to learn and grow. We maintain a low teacher to child ratio so that every child gets the individualized attention they deserve. We provide a nurturing foundation for development and to help make sure each child reaches their full potential.
We also will provide well balanced nutritious meals and snacks to your child. For all children we incorporate lots of fun activities into their daily schedule (i.e. free play, structured play, song and dance. We feel we are able to provide the best of both worlds, learning and fun all in one.
I respect and appreciate the trust you have placed in me to care for your child. As a parent, you are the most important person in your child's world and I will make every effort to support you as a family. I will share my information about your childs growth and activities during the time spent in my home. The children will be taught by example here, to have respect for themselves as well as for others.
Hello my name is Cindy Sherk. I am thirty five years old and I have had eighteen years of experience in a childcare. I am married to Justin Sherk and we have two beautiful children named Austin and Abigail. I am the owner and operator of Sherk Family Daycare. I am registered to provide childcare for up to, but not exceeding ten children. I am both C.P.R. and First Aid certified in Infants/Adults. I am fully qualified and have all the certifications required by the state to operate a daycare. I have always known I wanted to work with children. I started babysitting when I was thirteen and it kind of just went from there. I volunteered in middle school with the special needs department and continued babysitting all through high school for my neighbors and friends. I met my husband about six years ago and knew instantly that he was the "one". Three years later we had our first son and I knew I didn't want him in regular daycare. I didn't feel that environment would be good for him, always being shuffled around for ratio's and a constant turnover in teachers. It was not the kind of life I wanted for my child, so I began watching children in our home again.
I enjoy working with children of all ages and I feel very fortunate that I have been able to open Sherk Family Daycare and provide parents with their child care, as well as their preschool needs. With increased requirements in our public and private schools, preschool is an absolute necessity, in order for our children to be academically, as well as socially prepared for Kindergarten! I am happy to make it possible for parents to go to work, by providing preschool and child care. I enjoy the opportunity to educate and witness the growth and development of many children!
