About me:
I am a certified teacher, who chose to stay at home until my children were school aged. Now that my youngest is going into Kindergarten, I have found I love my new job!

I have 2 degrees: Uvic BEd [K-7] & BFA in Theatre.

I enjoy nurturing in children the qualities of: learning through play and guided activity with our imagination, costumes/dress-up, music time and musical instrument playtime, helping cooking, age appropriate and educational movies, doing arts and crafts, & general creativity with play-doh, colouring, lego, dolls, action figures, cars, trains, puzzles, games, and building toys.

My partner Dave, my girls [8 & 12 yr old], & I are both excited to share our home & play!

Our new house [& locale of what was once "Sunny Days", and is now "Dandy Lion Daycare"] is located at 1-2871 Peatt Rd. I previously operated as an on-call childcare provider and for short term transitional care in my residence in James Bay until July 1/09. I have current and prior references.

I will gladly email out my care manual & client references to serious applicants. The care manual is on my website as well.

Please don't hesitate to all and ask questions! :)
Admission conditions
We are a non-smoking home due to allergies. We prefer you to be non-smoking clients too, and at the very least ask that you do not smoke on our property.

Spaces not appropriate for children with life threatening food allergies, as we consume and prepare foods with allergic properties daily.

We now have a lovely little puppy, a family-oriented Yorkie x Bichon named Roxy (5yrs) who LOVES and guards "her" KIDS!

Dandy Lion Daycare is currently an unregistered LNR. I operate primarily by the model of VIHA standards, including Fire inspections, safety modifications, wellness rules, and diapering practices.

I am not currently open to the occasional evening/weekend child minding, as I do prefer to spend this valuable time with my own family!

I rarely do on-call with the exception of emergencies for prior/current clients only, though it never hurts to ask! Subject to availability. ON-call.fees are higher than regularly scheduled rates.

Spaces held ONLY with Deposit of LAST month paid in full in advance.
