Welcome to Bouncing Bubbles Child Care!  It is my vision to provide your child with a fun early-childhood program within a safe home environment.

My philosophy of childcare is to provide an environment for the child:

  • Where children feel safe, happy and loved
  • Where play based learning happens with a balance of child-led and teacher-led activities
  • Where exploration and discovery are encouraged
  • Where each child is celebrated as an individual with their own unique abilities, learning style, needs and interests
  • That encourages socialization as well as independent play, reinforcing positive values

My philosophy of family-centered childcare is to provide for families:

  • Open and honest communication about your child
  • Up-to-date information about your child’s activities
  • An attitude of teamwork in areas relating to your child’s development
