"There are two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots, the other, wings." - Hodding Carter
I have recently moved my fun and successful home daycare from downtown Toronto to the lovely town of Bowmanville! I am in the process of meeting my new little clients and showing them just how great daycare can be!
Why Choose Home Child Care?
Your child will never get lost in the crowd. During early childhood, children thrive on one-on-one, personal attention.
Many children struggle with going to daycare because it is a completely different environment than anything they’ve ever experienced before. Home child care, on the other hand, provides a comfortable home setting that is less intrusive to your child. Simply put, it just feels more familiar to them than a large, commercial daycare centre. This helps your child relax and eases their anxiety, and yours. Children in a home child care are also exposed to the same provider for the duration of their daycare experience - they will not have to move from the infant room to the toddler room to the preschool room. I am the face they see every morning until they start school. There is also no employee turnover!
Home child care, while intimate and small still has the benefit over a nanny coming to your home, because your child is able interact regularly with familiar children in both their age group and outside of it.
I treat my day care children as I treat my family - with a nurturing and compassionate attitude. I practice the fundamentals of Attachment Parenting, which means I place a great deal of importance to listening to a child's voice and focusing on respecting his or her needs and wants.
One big difference between home and centre care is that I can far more easily accommodate changes - if we are having a great day at the park, we can stay there, and not have to hurry back to complete a task or to stay on track!
PLEASE NOTE: My family has pets. We have a loveable and docile dog named Ecko and two puffy little hamsters named Aggie and Soda Pop.
