Welcome to Kimmy’s Approved Dayhome

To continually transform the lives of children, their families, and myself by providing superior child care in a developmentally appropriate and stimulating environment that supports the child’s social, physical, emotional, creative, intellectual, attachment, and literacy needs.

I am committed to promoting children’s self-awareness, competence, self-worth, resiliency, and physical well-being.

To provide consistent, health-conscious, and high-quality child care where children come first and the “whole” child is nurtured in a welcoming, friendly, and nurturing environment that enables children to safely explore, learn, and grow.

Kimmy, in partnership with the Agency, operates an Approved Family Dayhome and strives to provide quality early childcare and education to children.

Our mission is to provide safe, nurturing environments fostering strong relationships between children and educators.  We believe that when the adults in a child’s life are happy, caring, capable, resilient, and responsible, that a child has an immeasurable advantage in also becoming a happy, caring, capable resilient and responsible adult.

Q Do you allow the children any screen time?

No, I do not allow any screentime at Kimmy's Day Home. I have a literacy-rich environment that children enjoy anytime but especially during transition times.

Yes, spending time in nature is essential for a child's healthy physical and emotional development. We go outside every day in all types of weather!

"There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing." ~ Sir Ranulph Fiennes

Q Do you follow a curriculum?

Yes, my curriculum is based on the Alberta’s Curriculum Framework: The Story of Flight (Play, Participation, Possibilities) “Children’s play is central to this curriculum framework as an active, exploratory, creative, expressive process, deeply embedded in children’s everyday experiences and through which children participate in, learn about, and actively make sense of the world."
