Why Choose Iowa preschool?

Factors to consider when choosing the best preschool for your kids

A CT preschool is the best option for single moms or working parents as a safe place where they can leave their kids as they go to work. Since the daycare is the place where the kids will spend most of his or her time, it is but natural for parents to be vigilant when choosing the best daycare or preschool for their kids.

So what are the important factors then that parents should look for when choosing the best CT daycare:

  1. Certification. Before parents entrust their kids to a daycare center, they should check first if the center has passed all the requirements set by the concerned agency. Parents can ask the manager for the latest certification of their center to ensure that they have passed the inspection to be considered as a safe place for children.
  2. Qualification and dedication of staff. Parents should check the experiences and background of the staff who are running the daycare. Some preschools display these qualifications in one corner of the center for the parents to see. It is important that staff are also dedicated and shows genuine love for the kids so parents will have peace of mind that their kids are well taken cared of while they are away. Parents can also check for trainings and certification of teachers and managers to know if they have the skills needed to deal with emergency cases.
  3. Child to Teacher Ratio. Since kids being put to preschool are still young and would need all the attention to ensure their safety, it is ideal that there is no more than 4 kids per caregiver. The smaller the ratio is, the better as this means that the caregiver will be able to give as much attention and care per child.
  4. Cleanliness and Child Friendliness of the center. Make sure that the center pass hygienic standards and that the center is safe for children by looking at things like safety gates, rubber mat in the playground and the like.
  5. Activities for the kids. Parents should also put importance on the early education of their kids so they should also check for the different activities and curriculum being offered by the center for each age group so kids will also learn and gain basic knowledge while in the center.

All these factors are what you can observe in Iowa preschool. Iowa preschool is under Apple Tree Children’s centers which has been operational since 1982 serving 2000 families across 3 states. They have trained and professional teachers and managers that are very passionate with the work that they do. The center is also safe and comfortable and offers a home-like environment so kids will feel at ease as they learn, explore and have fun.

What’s important also is that they are not just a center where parents can leave their kids. Caring and Educating – that is their goal as they not only take good care of all the kids in the center but they also provide a venue where kids can get the best early education which will put a huge impact on the child’s overall development.

My Prayers

Dear Jhari,

If you pray for rain, don’t complain about the mud.

I answer your prayers,

P.S. Blessings have their burdens.  And burdens have their blessings.  Jhari, these are just two sides of one coin.  So be prepared for both.

So just perfect for the right comfort words at these times. I’m always in doubt these past few days, but I guess we’ll all have to trust and believe that everything will turn out just the way we want it. Amen.


I found this over Aggie’s pinterest and I would like to share it with you. I found myself worried what my daughters will reply to these questions really. So as early as now, I will try to ask my eldest the first 3 questions. I believe that it can be a training ground for us too.

Bonding time with our kids will always be a great time for us mothers too. I’m getting all the luck in the world since I’m currently a SAHM. But I’m sure that this will end soon. Once everything falls into place, I’ll be searching a new career. I’m thankful that I’ve experienced being at home. No salary, but seeing my daughters grow up beautifully is enough to pay all the stress everyday.

A Happy Home

I’m praying for the safety of the people of Syria. And at the same time I’m praying for our home to be safe.

This is the first time I’ll be sharing a photo of our humble abode. With the help of my in-laws, we were able to fulfill our dreams. But because of the current situation right now in Syria, our home needs to wait for us to come home. But our heart will always be with it. I pray that the current political issues on involving Syria will soon come to an end. It seems like yesterday when Hubby’s just looking for switch plates that will match our wall décor. Time flies so fast and we thank Allah God almighty for always guiding us when we were still building our home. Anyways, that’s it for now. Have a blessed weekend everyone.

Thursday Night Over

If you will look over the picture below, this is the view from SIL’s veranda. This is one of those bed weather days that we encountered few weeks ago. The weather here is getting cold. We had to postponed our plan to have an overnight stay over one of those parks below. Those Big Agnes Sleeping Bags will be very useful for these types of adventure.


I remember those days back in high school were we attended a field trip. I joined the girl scout back then. I don’t have a sleeping bag of my own, so I had to borrow one from a fellow scouter. Good thing she had a spare one. Memories that I will treasure for the rest of my life. Anyway, got to go now. The little one is teething and is in need of attention.

Julie: 8-month-old

How your baby’s growing:

Your baby’s newfound mobility means that he’s now entering the land of bumps and falls. These are an inevitable part of childhood, and although your heart may occasionally skip a beat or two, try to enjoy watching your baby explore his surroundings and discover his limits.

Restraining your innate desire to protect your baby allows him to grow and learn for himself. However, do make every effort to make your home baby-safe. A good way to do this is to get down to his level to find the possible danger zones. Secure fragile objects so they won’t topple, for example, and keep rickety furniture in rooms that are off-limits.

Yup, she’s trying to crawl up and reaching out things that she thinks she can grab. True to a lot of bumps in the head. It’s all part of it. After experiencing a lot of bumps with Julia, I’m not that scared anymore to face it one more time with Julie – not that I’m expecting for a lot, let’s say that I’m more aware of what can happen and the precautions that I should watch and expect for.

Alright, that’s all for Julie. I’m off to do a review about receipt printer. There’s a business person beside me right now that is preparing for a bring break and I’m offering my help by giving them some ideas and materials that they’ll be needing. TGIF everyone.
