Daycare Openings, Description and Features

Daycare description / philosophy

You've come to the right place for child care!!

I believe in the potential for great things in children who are loved, who receive guidance and who are allowed to have a childhood.

I have various spots, part time and full time, coming available in the next few months, as children move on to school, parents have babies and keep their children home, etc. Please include your child's age and birthdate as well as days and hours you are interested in, when you inquire to see if I can accommodate you. I welcome inquiries for part time and full time care or occasional care.

I will consider temporary care, or backup care if your provider is unavailable due to illness or for their vacation time, if I have appropriate availability. Updated April 22, 2017.

General Information Synopsis:
Smoke and pet free Home Day Care in a loving, caring family atmosphere. My name is Emily; I have my A.A. degree in Early Childhood Care, and many years of experience.

Style of Care
My style of care is to strive to replicate a fun and engaging 'farm/country' home & family atmosphere (as opposed to super-structured, more formal mini-day care centre). We follow routines rather than strict schedules, we eat healthy child friendly food, mostly home-made, often organic and locally grown. Sweet treats etc. are not offered. There is plenty of love and patience to share with everyone, with an emphasis on respectful relationships. Children love to spend their days with their friends, playing and learning while in my care.

Organic Perspective
We spend as much time as we can outside in decent weather, usually most of the morning and much of the afternoon (after naptime). My large yard is enclosed, a botanical delight for children. There are 7 fruit trees, a raspberry jungle, thousands of flowers from spring to fall, a swing hanging from a big maple tree, sandbox under the tree, grass, small 'woodland', tricycles etc. There is opportunity to play in mud as we have rain barrels to provide us with plenty of water to splash around safely with our water buckets and sprinklers. As well we tend our container gardens that may produce peas, tomatoes, strawberries, zucchini, cucumbers, beans, flowers .. a pot for each child if they wish .. peppers, some herbs, etc. We love to walk/run/trike and stroller to Rockway Gardens where the gardeners are very welcoming and like to show us how to pull weeds, find worms, and show us the flowers. We splash our hands in the fountains, observe goldfish and tadpoles, run and play on the grass, climb the rocks and love to have morning snack in the gazebo. We learn the names of some birds and try to identify which birdsong we hear. If one of us is interested in the ants on the sidewalk we all bend down to look, watch and discuss. Same with lichen, worms, clouds .. whatever we're seeing at the moment. Its open ended discovery, child-led learning .. they learn about what they are interested in at the moment, and they inspire each other to learn and grow!

In winter, there is lots of clean snow to play in safely when its not crazy cold. While we spend more time indoors in winter, there are many activities available to keep everyone busy, happy, exploring and discovering.

Reading Writing and Colours
The children have plenty of opportunity for reading/listening to stories while we're sitting together on the big story chair, for listening to music, singing, learning our colours and letters, doing puzzles, etc. We don't do 'circle time'. There is very little time for the occasional video/DVD, never ever 'on air/cable' television shows, no battery operated toys or 'screen time' as we're busy using our imaginations!

Qualifications Hours etc.
I have my A.A. degree in Early Childhood Care, a police check, F&CS check, Standard First Aid, many many years of experience, letters of recommendation, and a house that is very child friendly .. fingerprints, paintings posted on the walls, sand in the corners (woops!), child-sized furniture, toys, art supplies, child-sized cots & play-yards for napping .. You and your child receive plenty of value for your money! Hours are flexible.... sometime between breakfast and dinner, preferably not outside of 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., but I can offer occasional flexibility where needed. I am available Monday through Friday. I strive to 'live my personal life' outside of those hours so that I can be consistently available to you. My location is on Doon Road, Kitchener, just off the Expressway, and between King and Courtland Streets. Access is easy from all sides. Please see the attached map. Care is dependable, mature, very child friendly, consistent and the children in my care are happy!! My home is mostly scent and chemical free, an environment where recycling, healthy living, respect for the earth and for each other is taught and modelled.

Excellent references, resume, further information available. Please inquire. First contact by email, please.
