Roots n’ Shoots is a Government Approved & Accredited DayHome in the SE community of Riverbend, operating through Children's Choice Community Childcare Services since 2011.

At Roots n’ Shoots I pride myself on providing an environment where children have fun and learn while knowing that they are loved, safe, respected, and where their individuality is celebrated! Communication with parents is a priority. I believe that in order to be successful we must work as a team within your child’s life. Activities here are fun and age appropriate. Everything from tea parties to making mud pies! We have a lot of fun and are always learning! The daily routine provides structure and balance while still allowing room for spontaneity and flexibility of activities. My home is bright, clean, and smoke-free. I have play areas upstairs and downstairs, as well as a large fenced back yard with plenty for the kids to do year round. Outside time is a priority. We are outside every day. Everyone is happier and healthier when they get time in the great outdoors! During the school year we make daily trips to and from the school, where we often stay to play and make friends. TV is occasional and limited.

Activities include:

• field trips (Zoo, Spark, Playgrounds, Splash parks etc.)

• dramatic play

• stories & songs

• games

• cooking & baking

• arts & crafts

• sensory activities

• theme weeks/days

• pre-school curriculum activities I provide lunch and 2 snacks – following the Canada Food Guide.

I have several years of child care experience in my home as well as other’s homes. I was a Special Education Teaching Assistant prior to having my first child. I have my Diploma in Disability Studies and am a qualified Child Development Worker. I have a current clear Police Vulnerable Sectors Search & Child Welfare check, as well current Child Care CPR/First Aid. I am fully insured to be running a DayHome. Some of the benefits to choosing registered child care include back-up care when needed, monitoring by agency staff to ensure quality care, and subsidy for those who qualify.
