We believe in developing the whole child. Our enrichment program includes yoga, gymnastics, music and cooking.  All enrichment happens at Michelle's Backyard during regular school hours at no additional cost.  We do venture out into the community and take field trips several times per year.


It is our belief that children learn best when they are interested in what they are learning. We interact, observe and plan activities that will expand their thinking to allow for language, literacy, pre-mathematical concepts and other pre-academic skills to develop. Learn More

At Michelle's Backyard Preschool & Daycare we take extra care in making children feel safe, comfortable, and loved. The multi-age setting provides a rich and natural environment for children to develop social and emotional skills. Our curriculum is play based; focusing on the current interests and developmental levels of our children. We partner with parents and believe that emotional development is the core of proper brain development.  We have embraced the philosophy of nonviolent parenting, which stresses the importance of nurturing emotional intelligence through empathy and connection.

Preschool & Daycare

An OUTDOOR,  PLAY-BASED program for young children

ages 6 months - 5 years old

Welcome to

Michelle's Backyard Daycare & Preschool  

Welcome!  We are a home-based Daycare & Preschool, offering a loving, warm, safe and fun environment for your child to play, learn and grow.  We offer an outdoor, multi-age program focusing on learning through Play and tailored to the specific interests and developmental levels of our children.  We gently hold your child's hand as they navigate the transition from home to Kindergarten.

Childhood is a precious time of discovery and development. Children today face an increasing pressure to grow up too fast, depriving them of fundamental early childhood experiences that help them to become successful adults. Michelle's Backyard is committed to preserving the experiences of childhood. We spend hours outdoors exploring, giggling, laughing and discovering the world around us.  You will find us regularly covered in mud, chalk, paint or water and laughing as we splash through warm days in water tables, pools and slip n slides. Our atmosphere is relaxed and child-centered.
