Britters’ Critters Daycare
Come Join the Pack!
Britters’ Critters Daycare is a Licensed Family Daycare for children 18 months to 5 years of age.
The Daycare is located in the Cowichan Station community just outside of Duncan, BC. Only 5 minutes off the highway we are situated on a quiet street and are surrounded by rural farm land.
Program hours run from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm Monday to Friday and we offer both full time and part time space.
What Makes Us Great:
Learning Through Play
Play is fundamental in the early years as it is how children experience their world and bring meaning to it. The positive emotions associated with play are as important as the skills they are building that foster a natural curiosity for learning.
With caring guidance, children will learn critical skills such as the ability to connect with others, resolve conflict, self-regulate, display kindness and empathy and cope with challenges. These fundamental skills help children navigate the world around them and nurture emotional wellbeing.
Skills introduced in the program include, but are not limited to, numbers 1-10; the alphabet and letter recognition; practice with fine and gross motor skills; identifying shapes and colours; various science topics; dramatic play and musical skills.
Everyday there are opportunities, both inside and outside, for children to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that lead to healthy lifestyles. Rain or shine, we head outside twice a day to enjoy our large outdoor play area.
Others Are Saying…
I am a high school teacher that works in a preschool every summer. I worked with Brittnie for a number of summers and she is amazing! She is engaging, patient and fun…the children loved her! I just had my first child last week and I would not hesitate for a minute to put him in Brittnie’s care at Britters’ Critters Daycare!
Brittnie was a support worker for my daughter (age 3/4) in a group daycare setting a few years ago. She was very dedicated, patient, kind and worked hard to help my daughter make gains in her development and to socialize with the other children. She was a godsend at a critical point in my daughter’s development and was a key player in her coming so far in that one year.
Brittnie is an exceptional caregiver. I have seen her work with children of all ages and abilities and she is loved by all. Brittnie is creative, organized, and positive and she values the unique gifts of each child. Her games, activities and crafts are always fun and often silly! I highly recommend Brittnie and her daycare.
