About the Program
The Britters’ Critters Daycare program focuses on the holistic development of each child’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs in order to build a solid foundation for lifelong learning and wellbeing. The schedule has been designed to provide the appropriate balance between active and restful periods, individual and group activities, and child initiated and adult directed play opportunities.
We have a wide variety of toys, games, puzzles and dramatic play items for the children to enjoy, which are rotated regularly. Each day there is a scheduled time for arts and crafts and also daily circle time that includes calendar, stories, music and other fun activities.
Twice a day the group heads outside, rain or shine, to enjoy our large outdoor space which includes a playground structure, push cars and wagons, a playhouse, and a variety of outdoor toys.
Every afternoon the children have an opportunity to rest and relax during quiet time. Children who still nap have a separate space with provided cots to rest on. Any children who do not nap enjoy some downtime activities which include books, puzzles, arts and craft and board games.
Each month will involve a different theme, which all aspects of the program will focus on. Throughout the year there will also be special events including Show and Tell, Pajama Day, Crazy Hair Day, and special guest visits.
I am committed to providing a safe, nurturing, home-like environment for children where they can learn and grow as individuals in a fun and engaging way. I treat all children and their families with kindness and respect and I strive to establish open and honest communication. My gentle guidance provides children with positive models of behaviour while my consistent and predicable routines create a sense of security and control over their environment. The entire program is developed around learning through play and hands-on experiences with the intention of allowing children to explore their world and bring meaning to it. I am confident in my ability to offer high-quality childcare and program families can feel certain that their children are safe, happy and well cared for.
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.
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.
