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♥

Rivers to Oceans Week, beginning World Oceans Day June 8 and encompassing Canadian Rivers Day June 12
The Canadian Wildlife Federation has these great Colouring Pages and online games for kids... with the added benefit of teaching them about their care taking responsibilities as keepers of one-fifth of the world’s fresh water in Canada. My five year old son just played the leather back sea turtle game and thought it was great... he's now trying to beat his high score:D
"Taking care of this precious resource is a shared responsibility. With almost one quarter of the world’s wetlands, about two million lakes and 243,793 kilometres of coastline, Canada is truly a watery wonderland."CWF
