Happy Easter!

To celebrate Easter, the children at Little Tulips Family Child Care had an Easter egg hunt, coloured paper eggs, made hand print bunnies, read stories about Spring and devoured some yummy treats! We love to celebrate the holidays and to make exceptional days out of ordinary ones. We take every opportunity to create meaningful celebrations with our family and the children in our care.

Easter CollageI ordered an Easter Treat Box from Angela and Kate, the two girls behind “Happiness is Homemade Baked Goods”. A portion of the sales of their treat boxes went to the Janeway Children’s Hospital.  “The Janeway Children’s Hospital Foundation is a registered Canadian charitable organization created to raise funds to benefit the healthcare of Newfoundland and Labrador’s most precious resource – our children.  Easter is such a joyous time for children, let’s help make it extra special for those who are living with health and medical issues.”

Always happy to do our part!

However you celebrate Easter, let it be colourful, let it be meaningful, let there be memories!

Happy Easter, peeps!

 

Happy Anniversary to us!!

This month, Little Tulips Family Child Care is celebrating it’s first anniversary!
That’s right.. we are one year old!

DSC_0466sIt has been an awesome year, and a busy one! We have had some very special visitors to our home, including horses and therapy dogs. We have been entertained by story-tellers, local musicians and performers, and we have created partnerships with some wonderful organizations like Project Grace and 3E Love.

We work closely with the Janeway Children’s Health and Rehabilitation Centre and have had visits from physiotherapists, occupational and speech therapists, early intervention specialists, and developmental and behavioural practitioners. We have hosted ISSP meetings and have witnessed the remarkable things that can happen when people work together!

Great things are happening here every day. Over the past year, we have witnessed our children achieve many milestones in their lives, including learning to crawl, walk, communicate and gain independence. It is a tremendously rewarding role that we have as educators and child care providers, and we don’t take that for granted.

DSC_0472sWe are extremely thankful to the many individuals who have been a part of our success this past year. We have a wonderful home visitor and Inclusion Consultant, and I know they both enjoy spending time with us.

We have an amazing little group of children here, and we are thankful for the opportunity to work with each and every one of them!

We are striving to make a difference. We are striving to improve the quality of life for children with special needs, their families, and our community.

DSC_0430sThanks to kim at carter’s Cupcakes for our lovely treats!

We are excited to see what the next year has in store for Little Tulips!
Here’s to many more!
