Let’s face it, family life can be frenzied when both parents work. When Mom is working from home, it can be even more so (read: conference calls with dogs barking and kids fighting in the background). It’s time you learned about Budding Children’s Garden & Daycare.
It’s a place where your three to five year-old can enjoy playing and learning (just like at preschool) but with a flexible schedule to suit your needs. That’s the ‘occasional care’ concept behind Budding Children’s Garden & Daycare.
Savvy owners Talia and Lawrence Erickson know first-hand the challenges of being self-employed with an active preschooler (two-and-a-half year-old Hunter is their inspiration), so they try to make it simple. You sign up for a block of between 20 to 40 hours a month, then book your time using their on-line calendar (even the day before is okay). We love the convenient location (on Broadway, between Oak and Cambie) and hours (10 am–7 pm).
Good to know:The centre isn’t open yet but you can submit an application form on-line and attend the Open House on September 21.
