Katherines Summer Daycare 3rd Summer! ***I know that this like a lot to read but everything included is very important! :) *** What is Katherines Summer Daycare? My name is Katherine Langen, and I am the owner and operator of Katherines Summer Daycare. Katherines Summer Daycare is a high quality summer Childcare program that I run out of my home for the summer months. I live in a safe, quiet and friendly neighbourhood in County Fair, close to No Frills and Walmart. My house is perfectly located for a daycare, with three different parks, a splash pad and library all within walking distance. I am looking for school aged children (ages 3-11) who are in need of care over the summer holidays. Daycare runs Monday to Friday, with drop off starting as early as 8am, with pick up by 6pm. Accommodations may be made depending on the situation. I also provide a nutritious lunch and a large afternoon snack each day. I charge $40 per day, per child. (The price is firm as it is necessary in order to be able to provide nutritious food, cover the cost of field trips and supplies for daily crafts.) Why choose Katherines Summer Daycare program? Katherines Summer Daycare is unlike any other program offered in Thunder Bay. I combine the benefit and attention of a small home daycare, with the excitement and enrichment of a summer day camp! Each day is packed full of activities! Summer is so short that I feel we cannot waste a moment of it! We spend as much time as possible outdoors exploring, using sidewalk chalk, bubbles, flying kites, playing games and other activities, going to parks and the splash pad and more! We also do arts and crafts daily. At Katherines Summer Daycare your child will enjoy activities such as painting, making sculptures, folk art (such as painting birdhouses, decorative picture frames etc), and a variety of other themed crafts. Additionally, as an educator I feel it is important to provide children with opportunities to learn, be challenged and stimulated every day. Each day, we read stories and do other activities that will stimulate their minds. We also take the city bus for at least one field trip per week, to a variety of locations, such as the Waverly library for puppet shows and magic shows, Hillcrest Park for picnics and playing, to the marina and for tours of the River street fire station. Conveniently, there is a bus stop located at the end of my street, so catching the bus is only a 3 minute walk away! And the children love it! Throughout the summer I also plan several theme days such as Under the Sea, Carnival/Circus, Safari, Earth day, Campout, Christmas in July and more! And at the end of every summer we always have a big wind up party with a piata and loot bags! My goal is to provide your children with the highest quality Childcare available, while ensuring they have a memorable and fun summer vacation. I can promise you that you will not be disappointed with my services. I have had great feedback from every client, and have never had any issues or complaints. I also have had several full time and occasional children return each year! I am able to provide proof of my certifications (Bachelor of Education, Police Records Check etc) as well as references upon request. Who am I? Why should you entrust the safety, wellbeing and quality of your childs summer experiences to me? Three years ago I started Katherines Summer Daycare program as a summer business that would allow me to combine my love for interacting with and caring for children, with a way to earn tuition for the fall. I enjoyed it so much and had so many people asking if I would be offering it again that I could not resist! Now, this will be my third year running the daycare and I could not be happier! I am so excited to start this year! I am 24 years old. I am a graduate of Lakehead University, with a Bachelor of Education (JK-Grade 6), and a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Biology. I have a full police records check, and I am also a trained lifeguard. I have been a teacher with Experience Dance for 9 years and have been babysitting for longer than that. I take my job very seriously, as I understand the level of responsibility entrusted to me. I promise that your childrens safety and happiness is always my number one priority at all times. I am a hard worker, responsible, reliable and dedicated to this job. How can I get my child into Katherines Summer Daycare Program? Daycare runs Monday to Friday, beginning June 30th September 3rd 2014. Space is already filling up quickly with returning members from last year so call soon! I am looking for both full time (5 days a week) and part time/ occasional children. I book spaces on a first come first serve basis. My phone number is 807-629-..., so feel free to call or text. You can also e-mail me at ...@....ca. Face to face meeting can be arranged during the months of May and June, with tours of the facility beginning June 15th. Please contact me if you have any questions, would like to book a space or arrange a meeting. Hope to hear from you soon! Katherine
