Kiddies Korner Daycare has been operating since 1972, serving families from all areas of Kamloops. At Kiddies Korner Daycare, we are truly a center that strives to grow with our families. Many children start attending in our Infant Toddler program and continue on into the 3-5 program and eventually transition into our after school care. Our goal is to build lasting relationships with our children and their families.
In our Infant Toddler program, our babies are given lots of room to explore! We have a variety of fun sensory and gross and fine motor activities both inside and out to keep them busy and ensure their development is growing as it should be. We are very caring and nurturing caregivers that ensure your child is in a loving environment while they are away from their families. We do monthly planning in our program and focus on all areas of development, all while being mindful to take the children’s lead when determining that day’s schedule.
In our 3- to 5-year-old classroom, we offer a Preschool program in the morning hours that runs from September until June for our enrolled children. We are a play-based daycare, but our classroom is influenced by many curriculums including some Montessori-inspired fine motor activities. Our teaching staff is constantly changing the classroom environment to better suit the learning needs of each child. Throughout the day, children have the opportunity to engage in all areas of the classroom, including the library corner, dramatic play area, art station and free play just to name a few! We strive to make the classroom very fun and inviting in order to keep all children engaged and help them develop a love for learning.
The Staff at Kiddies Korner Daycare
Here at Kiddies Korner Daycare we are proud of our exceptional staff. We have many wonderful, dedicated members, some who have been with the daycare for 2-7 years. These staff members include infant toddler educators, early childhood educators and early childhood educator assistants, as well as teachers and support staff from School District 73.
All our staff members are first aid certified, have had criminal record checks and are licensed to work in all of BC. Staff members spend time in all rooms to ensure a relationship with all children and a working knowledge of that classroom’s routine. Professional development is encouraged at Kiddies Korner with many staff currently in the process of upgrading their education to even better serve our growing families and children. We are a small family of coworkers, sharing a passion for quality, compassion and fun in early childhood education and care.
