Bright Sparks Home Daycare is located at Lake and Maple in a central location in the town of Grimsby with easy access to the highway.
I opened my doors in South Burlington in 2006 and relocated to Grimsby in 2009.
I offer a main level daycare room exclusively used for childcare and rotate my toys on a regular basis to shake things up and keep the children engaged. I offer free play in addition to adult led activities including fine and gross motor activities, role play with many supplies made available to encourage the children's imaginations, crafts and malleable play. Additionally I create sensory experiences in the playroom and outside in my large fully fenced back garden for the children with access to a huge array of ride-on toys, outdoor toys and activities. I have a reading corner in the playroom where children have constant access to books in addition to a daily story time. Should we be following a theme in the daycare, toys, books and activities will be tailored to support the children's learning. Structured play incorporates basic math skills such as patterning, numbers and shapes along with language skills such as alphabet work and colours. Some of the children's favourite activities over the years have been treasure baskets, sensory tubs, playdoh and walks in the quad stroller around the local neighbourhood.
