Bright Beginnings is located in the Jackson Ridge area off of Mississippi Road in Carleton Place. Two minutes off of highway 7, very convenient location for those looking to commute to Ottawa, Perth, or Smiths Falls!
I am an Early Childhood Educator registered and in good standing with the college of ECE in Ontario. I completed my diploma in Early Childhood Education at Algonquin College and have experience working with children ages 0-12. I engage in professional development each year and have current knowledge in the field regarding emergent curriculum and also follow the government’s How Does Learning Happen document. I am trained and up to date in child CPR/First Aid and have an up to date criminal reference check.
Bright beginnings childcare is run out of my home. My home is both smoke free & pet free, and also has an air purification system installed which helps with allergies. I have a dedicated childcare space in my basement which has walkout access to the backyard.
My hours of operation are 6:30am-5:00pm. We spend lots of time outside in the backyard and also walk to the park on nice weather days! We do lots of sensory and art activities, and I have lots of toys to play with during inside play time or on poor weather days. We have story time every day to inspire a love for reading and books. On special occasions we may do some baking or special activities.
I provide lunch and two healthy snacks according to Canada’s Food Guide every day.
I have reasonable rates and I provide tax receipts at the end of the year.
I am happy to answer any questions you may have and look forward to chatting with you!
