Are you looking for more than a drop off centre? Somewhere that your child (ren) can be a part of a ‘family like’ atmosphere? Where they can have more one on one attention? Somewhere that can be their home away from home, where they feel loved, safe and secure? At Cindy’s Home Away From Home Daycare, I can provide that and much more.
Hello parents and guardians, my name is Cindy and I am a loving, mature mother whom has successfully run my own home daycare for more than 15 years. I have tons of experience not only raising children of my own into adulthood but also taking care of other parents children ranging from babies to teens. I also have experience with children who have disabilities/special needs. Some of these include autism, high anxiety disorder, ADHD, behavioural problems. All children are welcome into my home, and I try my hardest to work with each individual child and parent(s) to meet the needs of each individual child.
I have been located in the Berkshire area for most of my daycare career so I am well known in the area. I am located minutes away from Woodland Heights Public School as well as know much of the staff on a personal level. I also now offer before and after school care for Kensal Park French Immersion School.
The question I get asked a lot is what does my daycare provide parents and their children? First off it provides parents with the ease of knowing that they are leaving their children in the care of a safe, secure and positive place where their children can be free to express themselves and grow, learn and interact with others. It also provides parents with the satisfaction that their children will be treated and loved as if they were my own family that all children get right amount of attention, tender love and care that they need. It provides children a comfortable home away from home atmosphere where they can feel safe and secure and know that all their needs are going to be met. Somewhere they can build upon their already acquired skills and learn new and different skills as well. Somewhere they can express themselves through their individuality but also learn and build their skills of how to cooperate with other children, while making friendships and having fun.
I provide nutritious and well balanced meals and snacks in my daycare but I also advise parents that I take an interest in the likes and dislikes of all the children in my care. I do believe though that sometimes a treat is okay to have, especially on special occasions or holiday celebrations. I do outings such as trips to the park, picnics, swimming pool etc. when the weather permits. I also do holiday celebrations/parties as well as birthday celebrations/parties. I do enjoy doing crafts with the children as well, especially around special occasions and holidays.
I charge a flat rate for childcare NOT hourly. I also enforce a 4 day minimum for all children. There is a 2 week period that parents can take off annually, where the minimum is not required. I do provide annual receipts to all parents who need and want them.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. If you need any clarification on anything I have stated above again please feel free to email me and I will be more than happy to try and explain in depth. If my daycare seems like the right place for you, then please don’t hesitate to email me and we can talk further as well as set up a meet and greet so I can meet you and your child (ren).
Thank you for taking the time to look at my daycare ad. I look forward to hearing from you.
