Our Story

What we believe

Children are unique, full of life, boundless in their energy, in their desire to learn and endearing in their innocence. They challenge us, they make us think, and most of all they make us laugh. This is why we enjoy our jobs so much.

 

Our goal, first and foremost, is to ensure that your children are safe in our care. We pride ourselves in working as part of a childcare team with parents. Therefore, it is important for all of us to be on the same page in terms of parental desires for their children and approved discipline methods. We will never, ever use any type of corporal punishment on a child. We use positive reinforcement, redirection, logical consequences and timeouts as necessary and developmentally

appropriate.

 

We are big believers in free play. Children learn best when they are able to freely explore their world and express their own interests. We assist children in their exploration and guide natural learning through everyday activities and play. Our goal during free play is to be a facilitator,

while keeping the children safe, and helping as needed.

 

We also love to facilitate guided play, whether that be reading books completing crafts, introducing science as we go on a walk, or teaching math through a baking activity. Teachable moments are always weaved into our activities and free play.

Personally, as a parent I (Sarah, founder) found that I was having a hard time finding quality care for my children especially outside of the typical daycare hours. I ended up missing events and started asked other parents what they did. I found that a lot of parents had little to no options either and decided that I would do something about it.

 

As a parent, I know that when it comes to childcare, choosing the provider is one of the most daunting and challenging tasks that you are likely to encounter. You are trusting the care of your little ones to another person, which is scary. At A Spoonfull of Sugar Childminders we recruit by one simple rule "Would I entrust this person to look after my own children?". If there is the slightest hesitation, then we do not hire that person.​

As an Early Childhood Educator and with a background in Child Development, personally, I have worked in numerous centers and homes.

 

I am now the proud owner of A Spoonfull of Sugar Childminders. We are a growing team of professional childcare providers and many happy customers.

We are always there for you; throughout the entire employment of your sitter, we don’t just disappear the minute we have placed someone with you.

Whatever your requirements, we pride ourselves on our warm, caring and personalized service. We will always go that extra mile for you.

 

I look forward to meeting you and answering your questions.

Thanks

Sarah
