Welcome to our Dragonfly Cove Care Home and our Nook and a Book reading corner. This blog is a living, growing record of our kiddos during this beautiful time in our lives together. Memories and experiences are the greatest gifts we can bestow on our children. Here we document and share the unique experiences, ideas and inspirations enriching our lives and the children in our care. You will see various pictures of our kiddos learning through play and inquiry in every day life

A couple of ideas and quotes related to our blog and growth...

"Life isn't about finding yourself; It's about creating yourself."
"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass; it's learning to dance in the rain"

My passion and love of learning stems from a belief that learning is a life-long process. We strive to be open and adaptable to the many changes and challenges of everyday life. I try to model continued learning as the children see me reading, studying and implementing new, creative adaptations and theory to our home indoor and outdoor environments and lives. By giving them these roots, my hope is they will also follow a path of inquiry and know as students of life, they will always be learning and growing

Here is an excerpt from "How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years" which directly pertains to our blog here...

"a means of sharing perspectives with parents and colleagues. When families and others are invited to contribute to the documentation and share their own interpretations, it can provide even more insights that children, educators, and families can return to, reflect on, and remember in order to extend learning."

We love reading your thoughts and comments! Thanks so much for embarking on this special, memorable journey with us... lots of love

My first Blog... a new work in Progress

I'm the founder of a little 300+ group on FB called Care Provider Network Orillia.  
It is great as a Care Provider and Parent to have a place to share our unique experiences and ideas which enrich the lives of the children and others in our care.  We discussed craft ideas, books, educational materials and all the websites and activities that we use.  We shared joys and tears dealing with the daily stresses and challenges faced by Care Providers and by joining in the spirit of sharing; it made what we do much easier. 

As Margaret Fuller said ~ 
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles by it.  

Dragonfly Cove is what I call my Daycare in my home in Canada. 
Join me in the wonderful adventure that children are... 
the greatest and most important role in my life is being a Mommy and my Greatest joy.... my Children♥

I thought I'd start out this new chapter with some of our most beloved story books and I hope you'll source them out at your local library... 
"I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
as long as I'm living
my baby you'll be." 
Robert is a good reading companion...

 This is one of the books my son brings home from the Library frequently...
