As parents we have an array of choices when we are deciding which child care center fits best for our precious gifts. There’s only one Penny Pumpernickel Pants. Run by Mrs. Penny herself, Ophelia de Serres. She’s here to ensure your child’s unique personality shines through during their play-dates at Penny Pumpernickel Pants. Our kids are curious and silly. They are artists and explorers.

Our in-home playcare is equipped an abundance of toys, with a good selection for boys and girls. Brightly colored furniture brighten the area. You’ll notice the large collection of books because the one thing we really love is story-time in the reading nook. Music, singing, and dancing are a big part of a Pumpernickel day. As a musician herself Ophelia has available a wide selection of instruments for a Penny jam. She is a believer that yogis are born at all ages, as the group will enjoy yoga time during the week.

Our healthy environment includes the nutritionally balanced lunches and snacks that we serve. It shows in the respect for nature and animals that guides Ophelia’s approach. It involves the parents as Ophelia enjoys sending off periodic email updates with pictures of your child in action. We expect Penny Pumpernickel Pants to be your child’s haven providing you the comfort of knowing they are in a safe, warm, and nurturing environment.

“It is paradoxical that many educators and parents still differentiate between a time for learning and a time for play without seeing the vital connection between them.”
