I have been providing quality childcare in my home since 1990. The first 5 years of which was unlicensed. In 1995 I completed an E.C.E Family Daycare Course, the first floor of our home was renovated into a Daycare and I became Licensed. I hold a current Child Safe First Aid /C.P.R. Certificate/Early Childhood Educator Assistant Certificate from Northern Lights College. I have also been involved in the White Rock Parent Participation Pre-School with all three of our children. I have been a Brownie & Pathfinder Leader and have been a Team Mom on both our sons baseball and hockey team. I have been volunteering at the Peace Arch Hospital Extended Care Pavilions doing pet therapy since 2001. My families are welcome to join me at anytime and they have enjoyed doing so on a number of occasions.
Kimmy has been working in the child care field since 2010 when she started her career at Peachtree Daycare. She then earned her BC Early Childhood Educator Certificate from Vancouver Career College in 2013. Kimmy worked at CEFA Early Learning Daycare as a pre-school teacher for a couple of years before returning to Peachtree in 2015. Kimmy believes the early years of a child's life are the most important for their development. In an in home daycare setting, young children are able to build important social skills as well as basic self-help skills to prepare them for elementary school.
Your needs and your child's needs are our top priority. Our focus on literacy and communication skills. We work closely with parents and our community to work with network and services and provide high-quality childcare and education.
The environment in our childcare centre is warm, caring and friendly. The children will always be greeted with a smile. The guidelines we have are simple and easy to follow. Consistency is very important, this way the children know where they stand at all times. We treat the children with respect and in turn the children learn to respect their environment, the toys they use, each others belongings as well as each other. We believe that children develop their learning best through play, life experiences and group interaction. In our centre we strive to give the children this type of an environment. There is an adequate amount of space. We have child size tables, chairs and shelves. This ensures that the children may independently choose their own books, toys and drawing materials. Having the space allows the children to feel comfortable playing with others or have quiet time on their own. Schedules and routines are followed from day to day so the children feel secure in knowing what to expect.
We understand that each child is a unique individual. Knowing this, we can offer them effective and appropriate guidance to fit in with their own unique style.
We encourage children to talk to one another about their feelings. If a child has a problem with another child, we encourage them to describe the situation. We feel very strongly in treating children with respect and to build upon their self-esteem. If any problems or difficulties arise we will discuss them with the families when they happen. Clear and open communication is the key to a happy, healthy relationship between Peachtree staff and families.
