Hello, and thanks for visiting Bah Child Care page.
My name is Janelle Bah. Let me tell you a bit about myself and then we can see if I’d be the right person to care for your little one!
A teacher for over ten years and in three different countries, my passion has always been working with children because I admire their sense of wonder and unabashed enthusiasm for anything and everything. Now that I am a parent of two, the decision to work with children at home was an easy one to make!
My B.Ed, as well as my diploma from Ashworth College’s Childcare Provider course have well prepared me in children’s developmental stages, creating meaningful learning experiences, and to facilitate growth and progress in childhood education. My role as a care giver is to facilitate learning by creating opportunities to discover and explore. I believe in education through play.
I strive to create a place for children to think, work, play, and grow in happy and positive ways while learning all the while. My activities focus on development in the following areas;
- Cognitive Development
- Emotional Growth
- Science & Sensory
- Language & Communication
- Fine /Gross Motor skills
Although I am anglophone, my husband is francophone and so two languages are often spoken in my home. I am quite confident that dual-language learners will find themselves rather comfortable in my care. Further to the two languages observed here, I have also taught English abroad in Japan as well as In Cote d’Ivoire.
I am up-to-date with my CPR/First Aid Certificate, as well as government Secret Clearance and police Criminal Reference check.
A healthy lifestyle will serve to keep us healthy and strong. Outdoor play and nutrition are incredibly important in our goal of healthy living. I strive to prepare homemade meals and snacks with the four food groups in mind.
Finding the right child care provider can be stressful and emotional. My goal is to eliminate that stress and ensure a smooth transition for your family. Contact me to meet, chat and visit my play place. I know you’ll find Bah Child Care perfect for your little one!
