We consider the education and safety of children to be a top priority. Our staff holds several certifications and licenses in education and healthcare, to better serve our clients. Our continuing education is ongoing and we actively participate in state and county provided programs to ensure current best practice competency . With this continued education we are able to implement best practices and create customized curriculum for our preschoolers to better prepare them socially and academically for success in grade school.
We incorporate play based learning as well as a traditional academic curriculum, to create teaching moments throughout our daily interactions. We use these moments to teach quality character traits to the children that encourage critical thinking, compassion, respect and mindfulness of the people and world around us. We believe in nurturing the whole child's growth, at their pace, by focusing on education, social and emotional development, independent skills, cultural awareness and inclusion and more. Children enrolled in our program are better prepared to begin their school journey as confident, capable and prepared young learners.
Our location has a complete security system throughout the premises, including in our nap room and outdoor play areas to ensure the safety of each child and staff. We also use a parent/provider app where parents can receive detailed updates including photos and video of their child’s day. Parents also receive our monthly newsletters and each weeks detailed lesson plan within the "Learning" portion of the app.
My name is Mrs. Kimber and I am owner, educator and primary childcare provider of Masai's Playhouse. I am married to my husband of 10 years, Ian, who co owns and operates our program with me. We are blessed to be parents to our 7 young children. Prior to working in early childhood I worked in the medical field for 8 years in many capacities including as a licensed psych tech and managing private medical practices and medical specialty groups in the Los Angeles area. I hold up to date infant and adult CPR/ First Aid Certification, AZDPS Level 1 Fingerprint clearance as well as continued education units and certifications in childcare and ECE. I have a strong passion and connection to children and educating them in meaningful and fun ways! I take joy in providing a loving, safe and educational environment for children of all ages. At Masai’s Playhouse my family and I have dedicated our lives to providing childcare to families in our community. This is not just a business for us. It is a gift that allows us to be with our children, while helping to raise other children that will share the same schools as ours and grow up with one another. We are truly forming a community bond with other children and parents we live around and work with and ultimately providing a needed service to our community. Each and every family and child that I have the pleasure of caring for can be confident that I do everything within my power to be the best person, childcare provider and educator I can be, every single day
