Daycare description / philosophyHello my name is Cathy, and I am a mother of 2 children, aged 21 and 18 years old.
Thirteen years ago I gave up my senior level position in the business world to follow my passion - to open my own home daycare. I have never looked back and still love being with the children as much today, as I did then. I have many families who have been with me for 5-10 years, which speaks to the quality of care I provide and the relationships I have fostered with both the children and the parents. Parents often tell me how obvious my love for the children is and how the children love spending their days with me.
I genuinely feel a sense of fulfillment in caring for children of all ages, watching them grow, discover and learn new things while having fun doing it. I believe that children learn through play and thrive in an environment that fosters safe and positive learning experiences where they can grow to their potential. I also ensure they receive a balanced and healthy meal plan, which helps to aid in mental and physical development.
Our home is a safe, smoke free, and pet free environment, on a quiet crescent in Kanata Lakes. I am CPR and First Aid trained, Police checked, am excellent at multi-tasking and am very organized. I provide receipts and can provide lots of great references from current and past clients.
We have created a dedicated 1000 sq feet of space in our house just for the daycare. The space is bright with lots of natural light from the large windows, has a dedicated sleeping area for the children, dedicated kitchen just for the daycare, 2 large play areas and dedicated eating area.
We have lots of clean and age appropriate toys, craft materials, books, puzzles, building toys, etc. and computers for the older children. When not inside playing we spend lots of time outside playing with the toys, on the swings and on the play structures in our fenced yard. We also go off to local parks or splash pads that are just a 5-10 minute walk away. For a special treat we also head off to the library or Chapters.
As of June 1, I will have one space for a child aged 1 or older. I will also have space for 2 children aged 2-6 for the months of July and August. Come September I will also have room for a part-time child aged 2+ in the am hours from from 7-3.
I welcome you to contact me should you be looking for a safe and loving home away from home for your child.
