“I AM Light”

What Is a Holistic Development Program?

Holistic Development Program

  1. We have a low child:adult ratio to allow for meaningful connections (5:1!).

  2. We teach self love and self empowerment to nurture their self confidence.

  3. We eat gluten-free, mostly organic and non-GMO food to encourage healthy habits.

  4. We incorporate essential oils.

  5. We practice yoga.

  6. We get in touch with nature, animal friends, and we garden. We spend lots of time outside on our 30 acre farm, Enchanted Woodlands, to explore, climb and run wild and free!

  7. We teach and practice mindfulness.

  8. We are a family-style childcare center - all ages learn from each other.

  9. We observe, allow, encourage, and create space for child-led play and problem solving.

  10. We incorporate music - we have some talented teachers!

  11. In addition to all of this, we sing, dance, craft, create, imagine and have so much fun!

***WE GIVE BACK - We collect donations year round for FOSTER VILLAGE, a local non-profit organization designed to support and serve local foster families.
AND 20% of your child’s first full month’s tuition is donated to THE ARCHIBALD PROJECT, a non-profit organization with a mission to end the orphan crisis.***

She's a licensed Acupuncturist with a strong love for all children. She opened Mama Melli's in 2013 so that she could embrace and combine these 2 passions. The result has been more than she could have ever hoped for. Being a mother of 2, she relates to all parents and understands the challenges and fears that go with entrusting your child with someone outside of the family. She's dedicated to be there for the parents as well as each little kiddo.
