Tee hee, No, not the children’s game. The daycare that my children attend. I know, I know… a little dramatic sounding, right?! But, honestly, it’s the truth.
Daycare is my lifeline. I recently wrote a post, “Realising I’m not the mother I always thought I’d be“, which can help make sense of my intense love of childcare, but I have to say that it’s not just any ol’ daycare that does it for me. It’s the right one. It’s the place where, when you first arrive in the morning, your toddler blows you a kiss and runs in to start playing and your baby leaps from your arms into the caregivers’ arms with a huge smile on her face.
Finding the right daycare can be stressful for parents. Especially if it’s the first time you’re sending your child(ren) into the arms of a caregiver other than yourselves. It is not something that is taken lightly. Nor should it be. And that is why I am writing this post. To maybe help you with your choice of daycare, but to also tell you why we love ours so deeply!
Peekaboo Daycare is run out of a home in North Vancouver by the most caring, loving women! I chose Peekaboo for our girls for a number of reasons, but, at the top of my list- the quality of care. The way I approached my daycare search was keeping in mind that there will always be a space that’s brighter or bigger or has the latest all-natural toys… but, when it comes down to it… all I want is to know that my children are in the best hands possible, other than my own.
And that is how I feel when I drop the girls off at Peekaboo. I don’t spend one second of the day worrying or wondering about how their day is gong. I know how it’s going. They are having the time of their lives. They are stimulated. They are playing up a storm. They are cared for. They are LOVED. To me, that’s what matters most.
I’m not being paid to write this post. I’m writing it because September will bring some change for us and we will be saying (a very sad goodbye) to Peekaboo. Our loss, but potentially your gain! You see, this means that there will be spots opening up at an amazing daycare. Finding this kind of quality childcare on the North Shore is not always easy. To find out more about Peekaboo and to book your tour, visit their website.
I’d suggest calling ASAP
