Under The Apple Tree
Is the place to be
It's where we learn our ABC's

We eat really healthy meals and snacks
And tote around our backpacks

Off to the parks and playgrounds we go
Wagon pails and shovels in tow

Under the apple tree all 5 can swing
A hammock garden is a thing

Through our whimsical woods we explore
Imagination and adventures galore

Pinafore Solitude and Lake Margaret are fun
We're always on the run, run, run!

Lots of games and crafts we do
On the potty we learn to pee and... poo

We play with cars, trucks and trains
And puddle jump in the rain

Spring summer winter and fall
Our Splashy suits will do them all

Circle time is really the best
Singing, dancing, reading and then we rest

We love it
Under The Apple Tree
We really do
Come and join us you will too!

My name is Tania the children call me T or
'Nana T'. My husband and I have raised two wonderful young ladies over 30 years and together we have opened our home to over 70 families and their young children. I offer an independent (unlicensed), semi-structured quality home childcare in a loving family environment on 1.5 acres following the TVDSB calendar year. Children will learn life skills and early education from play based activities, observation, exploration and adventures indoors and outdoors.

We enjoy life under the apple tree and in our whimsical woods on our property also backing onto an old apple/pear orchard full of trails and adventures. We go out daily in all weather enjoying all four seasons. We bake, garden, and craft. We do everything a family does together and more!
Daily communication via SECRET FB group for current care families only. This is a quick and convenient way for me to communicate FYI's, memos and reminders to all families at the same time. Sharing schedules, recipes and post daily photos of our adventures with the option of private messaging when needed.
I carry Daycare Liability Insurance and Passenger Coverage on my Honda Odyssey. I have CPR/First Aid and Police check. I actively participate in a home childcare provider support and networking group.

I operated an independent home childcare in London for 20 plus years as Aunt T's Tots we relocated to the Central Elgin/St Thomas area August 2017 and we LOVE IT. We look forward to building new relationships and welcoming new care families into our home.

Admission conditions
***************PLEASE NOTE: 1,2,3 and 4 *****************

1**PET FRIENDLY HOME***-DOGS-Two bigs Alaska and Monty both Siberian Huskies and one little Gizmo a Shih Tzu Poo. Pet's are an important part of our family life. Your children learn from both the care of and the responsibility of sharing a home with pets. All dogs are up to date on vaccinations and get yearly flea and tic medication.

2***NUT FRIENDLY HOME*** we love all kinds of nuts and we bake with peanut butter so at this time we cannot accommodate any nut allergies

3***VACCINATION POLICY*** as it is your parental choice to vaccinate your children or not in Canada it is also my choice as a business owner operator of a home childcare - I choose to provide an environment where all children are up to date. "The Canadian Paediatric Society urges all children to receive routine vaccinations and an annual influenza (flu) vaccine, unless there is a medical reason not to".

4***WINTER VACATION*** Please note although I follow the school year schedule for care we do take an additional weeks vacation in February alternating years between the first week and the last week specific dates provided in the fall of each care year
