The Oconomowoc, Wisconsin daycare center has been under the direction of Lisa Busalacchi since April 2002. Either Lisa or her assistant director is always on site to ensure that someone is available to answer your questions and to greet you when you arrive. The teachers are long-time staff members and most have been with the center since before Lisa purchased it in 2002. They are all trained in early childhood education and are CPR certified. And most importantly, they know your child's name and care for him or her as if he or she was their own. Our strength comes from our staff. We strive to provide a caring and nurturing alternative to your child being home with you. We believe it is important for children to play and have positive social, emotional and intellectual experiences, whether they are in our practical learning center, painting, singing or listening to stories. A great deal of time is devoted to strengthening self image. We encourage positive reinforcement and positive discipline. Limits are set based on age in an effort to give your child a feeling of independence and a sense of responsibility, while keeping in mind that each child has his or her own pace of development. We strive to accommodate your child's needs and establish a basic trust between child and teacher. We believe that each child is unique and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. We promote cultural awareness and respect for those who may be seen as different. Finally, we encourage communication between Almost Home staff and you, our client. You have entrusted your child to us, and our goal is to be the best child care provider your family will ever have. The Almost Home daycare center is located at 1005 North Lake Road in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. For directions to our Wisconsin daycare facility, see our contact page. Visit us any time during our open hours - Monday through Friday from 6: 30 a.m. to 6: 00 p.m.
