Learning Through Play


We believe that a child's biggest job is to play! Through play, we teach valuable skills and cultivate confidence in children. We provide a safe environment for children to develop emotional intelligence, boundaries and self awareness. Through enriching play and interaction, children learn about themselves and others. We believe all children are unique, powerful, strong and resilient and that it is our job to support them with unconditional love and patience as they grow.

Holly is amazing. My daughters are four years apart and both went to daycare with her. She was always coming up with neat activities and crafts to help them learn. She is a kind, loving, gentle, energetic person, and I trust her fully with my most precious gifts.

Holly has been a close and trusted family friend for over a decade. She is likely the most caring and thoughtful person we have had the pleasure to know.  Her endeavour to follow a career path in child care is an exciting chapter and not a surprise for those who know her best. Along with her own experience as a mother, her relentlessly caring nature and attention to detail will undoubtedly lie at the foundation of her daycare business. Without hesitation, we would recommend Holly's expertise to anyone seeking child care in the Cowichan Valley.
