Daycare Information: My name is Stephanie Mattice and together with my husband Russell, we are the owners and operators of the Mattice Family Daycare located in the City of Shasta Lake in beautiful Northern California. Mattice Family Daycare is a licensed, large family childcare home. We are open Monday through Friday, 7:30am to 5:30pm. I have been a licensed childcare provider for the past 20 years and plan to continue for many more years to come. As licensed providers we are CPR, 1st Aid and Water safety certified. Mattice Family Daycare is a family setting home that includes our five children and three family pets. We have large inside and outside play areas with lots of age appropriate
toys and play structures. We enjoy outside games and activities, healthy meals
and snacks and holiday celebrations. Daily activities include arts and crafts, science and
nature, music and dance, story time, games and free play....we just have
fun all day!
During the school year we offer an Early Learning Program for our Little Learners in care. Preschool activities include color, number, shape and
name recognition as well as manners, self care tasks and much more.
My Background: As I mentioned above I am married. Russell and I have been married 23 years and together we have 5 children. Our oldest Aubree is 23. Next is 20 year old Drew, then our 13 year old twins, Drake and Sophia and our youngest is 7 year old Ava. I am the oldest of 4 siblings by 10 years so I started babysitting pretty early on. During high school I began working as a childcare assistant in a home based daycare and enjoyed it very much. In college I pursued a degree in Early Childhood Education. While still attending school, I became a nanny for a wonderful family which I stayed with for several years before marrying Russell. Russ worked as a machinist until after the birth of our second child when we bought our first home and decided to open our daycare business together. I love working with my best friend everyday and Russell loves being a full time dad. Over the years we have been blessed to gain many wonderful friendships and watch their beautiful children grow as part of our daycare family.
