Description

Sweet Peas Day Home is dedicated to providing the highest quality childcare in your area. As we are a relatively small day home, we can devote individual attention to each one of our customers, insuring that their needs and expectations are always met.

Hello, my name is Krystle Palinka.
I am a 26 year old mother of a beautiful daughter who is 2 and expecting our second child in November 2009. I provide healthy meals and snacks, crafts, stories, free play and the occasional movie. With my own child aged 2 years and a nephew 6 yrs I have lots of age appropriate toys. I have a fully fenced yard with lots of toys for outside play as well as a playground right down the road. Daily walks and out door play are weather permitting.

First Aid in Child Care Level C CPR completed.

SIDS Recognition program completed.

My rates are reasonable and competitive.
References are available upon request.

If you are looking for child care I encourage you to give me a call to set up an interview. I would love to meet you and provide the warm, caring environment you are wanting for your child/ren.

Price subject to change.

Hours of operation

Opening time for the Day Home is 7:30 a.m. and pickup time is no later than 5:30 p.m. unless prior arrangements have been made. If you are late picking up you child, you will be charged a late pick-up fee of $5.00 every 5 minutes past closing time.

Payment for the month is due on the first day of the month or a twice-monthly schedule. You have the option of paying in cash or by cheque. If, however, a payment is not made on the due date, you will be charged $5 for each day the payment is late. If a cheque is returned, you will be charged $25. If two cheques are returned, you must pay in cash thereafter.

What Dayhome Fees Include
A friendly message to parents (I did not write this and am seeking permission to credit the author.) :

What you pay to the childcare provider will guarantee the highest quality childcare, nutritious meals & snacks, and a safe, nurturing environment for your child. Your childcare fees provide my income including the taxes and CPP, which I pay into. Your fees pay for food, paper products, soap, and cleaning supplies, toys, play equipment, baby equipment, art & craft supplies, water, gas, electric, sewer and more, nap mats, playpens, special chairs & furniture, strollers, wagons, lots of repairs and wear and tear, entertainment expenses, paperwork & supplies, parties and special events, and all of the other things that your child will use.


Like other self-employed workers, family childcare providers do not receive the benefits many employees take for granted. These include health/dental insurance, life insurance, retirement/pension, paid personal days, personal vacation time, maternity leave, workers comp, flexible time off and unemployment insurance. These benefits often amount to as much as 35% of a person’s wages.

Family child care is a blessing to your family in that your children will have much more individual attention and opportunities for learning, and much less illness than center care. There is also much less staff turnover, as your child will have one person caring for him or her only, and will not be transferred from one room in the centre to another. This kind of ongoing relationship between child and caregiver has been shown to be the very healthiest situation possible for young children.

Unlike other forms of self-employment, family childcare is very restrictive in that there is no room for growth. The province dictates the size of my business. I cannot take time off for appointments or obligations without careful planning and covering of my responsibilities. To protect my rights and income, you will find that a guaranteed wage is part of my contract. Most people have a 40 hour work week. Mine is 60 hours and up and that does not include all my preparation, bookkeeping, paperwork, shopping or cleaning time.

I hope this gives you a better understanding about all the ways in which your childcare fees are applied.
