Meet Julie and family!
Maggie, Julie and William…the first two Kidz Watch kids!
I started this concept in 2002 after meeting many parents frustrated with their childcare options and the lack of high-quality, accessible childcare. Frequent moves throughout the US and Canada exposed our family to many different childcare models and the need for flexible care and lack of it became something I could not ignore.
After settling in the Midwest in 2002, we founded Kidz Watch Drop-In Childcare in the beautiful community of Sylvania, Ohio. As a certified educator and experienced early-childhood education teacher, I carefully planned and developed Ohio’s first state-licensed, hourly childcare and flexible care center. With more than two decades of experience in the field, the Kidz Watch team is constantly researching, updating and adding value to our services.
Prior to founding Kidz Watch, I taught elementary school and preschool. I have a B.A. and B.Ed from Queen’s University in Kingston Ontario and being the perpetual believer in education I am currently working on my Master’s in Education Leadership. I have consulted with several like-minded entrepreneurs to help open similar concept centers around the United States under the DropInChildCare.com banner. Visit www.dropinchildcare.com for more details if you would like to open your own center!
Kidz Watch …Trusted Hourly and flexible full time childcare….putting time back on the side of families
Kidz Watch is designed to give time back to families and to provide families with top rate, affordable care. Our goal for drop in children is to provide children with a safe and secure environment where they can learn through play. Our program is play based and a curriculum is built around it. According to Jean Piaget, “play is a child’s work.” Children need time to learn and experience the world through role play. The fulltime curriculum follows the CREATIVE CURRICULUM and is designed to create enthusiasm for learning and build school readiness skills. Infants and toddlers have their own program designed to develop gross and fine motor skills, as well as provide music, language, art, cognitive, social and sensory experiences.
We accept children from 6 weeks through 12 years old. Reservations are required for infants.
