Parents, looking for a dayhome provider that will love and care for your child like you would? Then welcome to Agape Dayhome!

I am a former teacher with almost 10 years of teaching experience both in Canada and abroad. Along with a B.Ed and B.A., I have a clear police check, vulnerable sector check, St. John Ambulance First Aid, CPR and Hand in Hand Training.

Along with loads of laughter and cuddles, I offer warm connection, careful attention and positive limit setting as the basis for optimal growth, learning and emotional health. My child centered program includes age appropriate activities that promote physical, social and cognitive development. Overall, our daily schedule alternates between a few structured activities and many free play times.

My approach uses specific play techniques and thoughtful listening to help children work through their emotions. In turn this promotes development of emotional intelligence, social skills, cooperation and empathy. Laughter is important for mental health so we're always on the look out for those giggles!

I use only positive discipline methods that rest upon a foundation of affection, attention and respect. A child's emotional moments or times of lashing out are viewed as a cry for connection and understanding. This method uses a time 'in'. When done together it allows full emotional processing. During this time 'in' I listen with acceptance and warmth while offering guidance and clear limit.


Our days are filled with:
- lots of outdoor play both in our backyard and the many parks within walking distance
-activities such as:
crafts
music
songs
story time
baking
ABCs
numbers
special holiday celebrations
-healthy meals and snacks
-structured and unstructured play

I provide a safe, non-punitive environment for children to learn how to share, take turns, follow directions, and most importantly: respect one another.

Our house is a TV-FREE pet free, and smoke free environment.

I look forward to hearing from you!
