Description

Allow me to introduce you to HuggieBears Private Home Daycare. As a mother, I know the difficulties associated with trying to find suitable child care options for your child. Finding one that allows you to feel secure in your decision to return to work. Knowing your child is safe, happy & well cared for in your absence is one of the most stressful tasks we have as a parent!

My name is Shirley Richards, I am the proud mother of three young adults. After the birth of my second child, I made the choice not to return to work within the medical field opting to become a stay at home mom. Hence, my home daycare was born.
I take pride in managing my home daycare with many of the same guidelines set out within the Daycare Nurseries Act, which is strictly enforced by the Ministry of Education, Early Years Division. By adhering to these policies, it allows parents the comfort of a home based daycare with the guidelines of a traditional daycare setting.
I pride myself in provide quality, reliable and affordable childcare within a safe, stimulating, caring & loving environment where children enjoy a variety of activities where "Learning through play is encouraged and self-confidence is gained"

***MY HOME IS A SMOKE-FREE ENVIRONMENT BUT DOES INCLUDES PETS; Dublin our Calico Cat & Piper our Black Lab***

****TEACHERS: PLEASE TAKE NOTE, FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE I OFFER AN INCENTIVE DURING MARCH BREAK, CHRISTMAS BREAK & SUMMER HOLIDAYS!!! BOOK AN INTERVIEW TODAY TO FIND OUT MORE!****

Activities include Arts & Crafts, Stories, Puzzles & Games, Music & Sing-a-longs, Outdoor playtime, Imaginative play, Theme days, Pet Days, Show & Tell. Our day begins with Circle Time where we discuss the days of the week, the months of the year, the weather for the day.
Educational areas of focus include language development, math, science, fine & gross motor skills. I introduce and teach the children their colours, shapes, letters, sounds, words, stories and songs, while following a preschool curriculum to better prepare your child for junior kindergarten. Children learn how to share while playing together. All activities, toys, stories are age appropriate.

There are several parks and playgrounds, all within a short walking distance. Weather permitting the children and I are outside for a minimum of two hours daily.

Hot nutritious home made meals(breakfast & lunch) as well as snacks are provided throughout the day. All the children eat together where they are taught & learn their table manners. I provide a booster seat with tray for each child in my care.
The entire lower level of my home is a childproofed daycare area. There is a large playroom, kitchen/dining area. There is convenient access to the large fenced backyard for outdoor play. Each child has their own "cubbie" for their belongings. I also provide playpens/cots for your child's sleeping convenience. Located within the entrance is our Bulletin Board. This provides parents all the necessary information about our Menu, Monthly Activities & any Notices for their review.

Comments as well as suggestions are always welcomed.
I feel that It is through open lines of communication with each child's parents, that enables me to provide the best possible care for each one. This is how together we introduce such things as potty training. I would also like to add that open and closing times may be
Adjust for parents current needs.

I am conveniently located near the major highways 401, 409, 427 & 27, a 2 minute drive to the GO Station (Etobicoke North) . I am on several main bus routes (Kipling 45, Dixon/Malton 52, Islington 37) Bus connections to Wilson 96 and the Yonge & Bloor subway.

I am certified in both Adult & Child CPR & First Aid through the Canadian Red Cross. These are both updated semi-annually.

In addition, I am pleased to offer a FREE two week transition period. This allows both your child, as well as yourself to become adjusted to the new daycare experience.

Please contact me regarding availability for your child's age group as this varies from month to month. Fee's are dependent upon several factors including your child(rens) age whether or not the child is toilet trained, number of days & hours required for care. My opening and closing times are only an average, I am very flexible with drop off and pick up times.

For further information, please feel free to call me at 647-993-0271 or via email to huggiebears@hotmail.com
In addition to the Reviews available on this site, I also have many References from present as well as past clients which are readily available for you to contact.

Admission conditions
Once the interview process is complete, and upon acceptance, I require a series of forms to be completed. These will include an Application/Emergency, Consent, Immunization, and Allergy forms. A medication form is also required to be completed prior to the administration of any Doctor prescribed medications, or Tylenol/Motrin.
These forms are kept in your child's confidential personal file, and will only be used when needed should an emergency arise.
I encourage parents to come for an hour visit with their child, to view a part our day. In addition, I offer a free two week transition period for both child and parent. This allows for both of you to become accustomed to the new adventures of daycare.

**PLEASE NOTE**"THIS CHILDCARE PROGRAM IS NOT LICENSED BY THE GOVERNMENT OF ONTARIO"**

All forms will be updated annually or on an as needed basis.

**As Stated above in the description, My family does include a Calico
Cat named Dublin, as well as a Black lab Piper ***
