Just Like Home Childcare is a locally owned organization with the goal of providing a structured, yet relaxed learning environment for your child. In order to ensure that we are providing the highest quality, we strive for all of our full time staff to either have an Education related degree or a minimum of 5 years of experience in the industry.
Each one of our classrooms adheres to a daily schedule. We know that predictability and routine are crucial for children. Your child will have the opportunity to engage in both small and large group activities, fun art projects, hands-on experiments, and individual or small group play. We believe that reading to children starting at a very young age is also important, and your child will have exposure to books as early as the infant room. Children will enjoy class story time, as well as the opportunity to explore books on their own time. Just Like Home Childcare will be starting Spanish, Little Clickers and ABC Mouse, as well as weekly theme-based activities to create a well-rounded program in which children will learn all about the world around them. Our facility has both an indoor and outdoor play area, designed with your child in mind. Starting in the Toddler 1 Classroom, children are given multiple opportunities each day to play and explore in both areas.
My Name is Nancy Foral and I purchased Just Like Home on September 12th2016.
I have two grown children and a teen-age grandson. I spent 10 years in teaching and another 15 years in educational administration. I have a BS in education, a MS in educational administration and a MS in counseling. I worked the last 15 years as the Executive Director of a non-profit assisting families in crisis. I know children and the problems parents face today.
I want, Just Like Home, to be the best childcare in Omaha. We are working on many plans and ideas to do just that.
I am always available to hear from you. Together we work toward providing safe, happy and healthy opportunities for your children.
My name is Nikki Thompson, and I started working at Just Like Home in 2012.
I have two children of my own, with a third arriving in April 2017. I also have three step-sons, so our family is always on the go! I have a BS in elementary education from UNO. I have many years of experience in working with children. One of our goals that I'm particularly passionate about is providing solid curriculum and learning experiences to prepare our children for anything they will encounter when starting kindergarten. I am working hard with Nancy and Jen to make sure our children at Just Like Home are getting the best opportunities possible for learning.
My name Jen Randall, and I have been with Just Like Home since 2009.
I have two children, and a brand new grandson. I have been teaching preschool since 2000, with 8 of those years being here at Just Like Home. I still teach part time preschool as well as being the assistant director. I am currently in charge of our new computer lab, and have been working very hard to create a great system of learning opportunities using the new computers. I have been the assistant director for the last two years. I am always happy to answer questions, give tours of the building, or help with anything you may need!
