Inventive programs for Bowen Island kids
I'm a Swiss-certified kindergarten teacher and special education assistant with over sixteen years of experience in schools and in family daycare. Monica's Kid Programs are for pre-schoolers, kindergarten kids and pre-teens. They run between September and June. And my place is a licensed family daycare.
I teach groups of up to eight kids in a home with lots of wooden toys, craft materials and tools, guinea pigs and fish, and a large outdoor play area. It's situated in Deep Bay on Bowen Island, near Snug Cove, Collins Hall, the Lagoon and Crippen Park.
As a licensed family daycare, I follow the policies and procedures enacted under the Child Care Licensing Act and Regulations. This includes having inspections by Health, Child Care, Building and Fire officials. For more information about what makes a licensed family daycare special, you can contact the North Shore Child Care Resource Centre (604-985-7138).
“Monica's creative, skillful and loving presence has been such a great gift to our family and children over the past 7 years. She has been an amazing and caring role model, teacher, mentor and friend for both of my children, and has supported and nurtured their creative spirits with such love and kindness. Thanks Monika, for sharing your gifts and leadership through the amazing programs that you offer to the children in our community!” ~ Kim Howden
