Our local business owners are the heart of our community...

It just wouldn’t be the same without our local businesses. And while these companies bring vital new services and products to our neighborhood, our continued support is their lifeblood.

As we slip in to sample the delicacies at a  hot new eatery, or patronize a local repair shop, have you ever stopped to wonder about their story? How did they decide to go into business? Why here? What’s next?

Our business spotlight serves to shine a light on some of our local businesses, their offerings, and how they hope to help our community. Check them out and give them your support!

We have been “deployed” to this place, for this time, for these people, ALL for Gods’ glory and Kingdom, not our own

  2. We are a movement, not a museum. Never complacent; willing to prayplanstrategize, and move forward into the next theatre of battle for the Kingdom. “Forward March!”
  3. We are HIS, and must commit to becoming more like Christ personally and living out God’s mission collectively“Be One and Make One!”

Child Experts agree the most effective way for a child to learn is through play.  Daytime Playtime's enrichment classes do just this by integrating colors, letters, numbers, shapes, sign language, Spanish, body awareness, music, dance, art and more through engaging activities. Our developmentally based preschool allows children to explore their own individual skills and creativity in a more structured environment. Our classes rotate into three different learning labs: Math & Science – including learning stations & experiments; Art & Language; and Music & Movement. All three learning labs tie into a theme your child will be taught throughout their day.

We are also a bilingual school, incorporating Spanish into all of our classes. Our program combines physical activity, mental stimulation and social interaction in a visually exciting, energetic and unique environment. Daytime Playtime gives your child a cognitive and social jump-start so they are prepared for everything!

Remember when a slab of Play Doh was just exciting? Or when a box of crayons (and yea, I’m talking about the big honkin’ box of 64) made you giddy? As I cruised through the beginning of my (REDACTED) decade on this delicate blue marble, I found myself yearning to create, build, and make, like I used to in my (ahem) younger years. The kicker was, I just didn’t have the time. The fact is, it’s just so easy to fly through daily life, switching between Mom, Wife, (kick-ass) Lady Boss, FurMomma, etc., without really realizing how fast time is going by. And of course, this deeply philosophical conclusion was made in my DEEP THOUGHT generating room, which is, of course, the bathroom. Or more specifically in this case, the shower. You see, my morning shower had become my respite. My 20 minutes where no one else could talk, email, text, or otherwise engage with me just yet. And I have grown to cherish these minutes. Yes, granted, shortly after said shower the ‘all hell breaks loose’ portion of my day usually starts, but until then, for that brief time… peace. Serenity. The breakthrough came one morning, in the shower, as I was staring at a new cleansing bar. And boy, was I ticked. Because, hey, if your shower is going to be a highlight of your day, you’re going to start looking for frou-frou shower accoutrements. And this particular bar was simply not pulling its weight (I know, I know; first-world problems- but stay with me here). Oh sure, it had started out strong, great smelling, etc. But just a few uses in and it was a soggy, blah-smelling mess.
And then it clicked. I raced to the internets (after I dried and dressed because, safety first) and quickly pulled up Pinterest (because where ELSE do you go for soul-crushing crafty projects). Well. DAYS later after pulling myself out of that particular never-ending tunnel, I realized that I was tripping over a solution to both my shower AND creative issues. Months and months of reprioritization, research, recipe testing, and BAR design later, I had amassed a ton of knowledge and cultivated the angelBARS collection available today. Whether you’re a quick morning shower gal like I am, or prefer long, lingering soaks at night (and with wine!) I am so excited to share my heaven scent creations with you. And even if this isn’t your preferred method of relaxation, here’s hoping that we all make a little ‘ME TIME’ an important part of every day.

Josiah Mendoza

Owner

Josiah began his journey in the fall of 2011 when he picked up a used Canon T2i and paired it with a cheap flash attached to a sync cord. After hundreds of hours of Youtube, this self-taught photographer finally found his passion in life. Juggling a day-job and a family, Josiah did what it took to hone his skills and create stunning imagery with personal projects and very enthusiastic and passionate collaborations.

Fast-forward to 2020, Josiah's work has been featured on multiple websites, used by restaurants, hung in office buildings, and helped many actors and models get gigs with beautiful portfolios. The journey continues with no end in sight, and the sky's the limit.
