Hi there, Afsaneh Emami owner, director and teacher of Artemisia Montessori Childcare Center. I have wanted to work with children as far back as I can remember!

I have been working as a childcare provider for more than 7 years.

Welcome to our Montessori Childcare Center

At Artemisia Montessori Childcare Center, we offer child care in a professional setting.

Your child is cared for in a safe and secure environment arranged to assist in their natural growth and development based on Montessori education.

The atmosphere providing children with “siblings” of all ages with whom to play, socialize, and learn. Our goal in providing quality child care for your child is to provide…     

 1. A safe environment…my home boasts a fully fenced in back yard, safety gates, and child-proofing inside the home. We also meet all building code requirements for fire-safety.

 2. A nurturing environment: Children should be hugged, held and cuddled as much as possible and as much as they need.

 3. A learning environment:  learning is not necessarily the ABC’s and 123’s, but is also the learning of values. The values of: honesty, respect, self–reliance, and potential; self-discipline, and moderation; and the values of being: dependable, loving, sensitive to others, kind, friendly and fair.

 4. To foster unconditional love… this kind of love is very important to me because children should know and understand that regardless of their behavior or choices they are loved just for being who they are!

 5. Communication is the key to a successful child care arrangement. You, the parent, and me as the provider need to have a good working relationship so we can communicate and work together. Parent and provider need to exchange pertinent information in the child’s life such as changes in routine, special events, or activities; as well as changes such as a death, divorce, separation, moving, visitors, etc. All this information can be important in understanding the child’s feelings, behavior, and well being. 

I invite you to share with me in writing, by telephone, or schedule an appointment to talk about your concerns in any area regarding your child’s care!
