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

Summer Reading Program!

The kids are super excited to be Super Heroes in training with the Public Library Summer Reading Program.  It cost only $5.00 per Child and it is a program running all across Canada!  When I signed them up today I was very surprised to see just how in-depth and well thought out the program was... I'm just as excited as they are!
To access the program you need to register your child in person at your library for the local summer reading program.  Your child will also require their own library card which is a fun outing in itself.

There are also ways to check the availability of a book before you go to the library so you aren't disappointed to find it isn't there when you arrive... Libraries have online sites to check on books availability and to showcase new books and present ideas you may not have thought of... Check it out!

I hope you take this Summer Vacation as a great opportunity to jump into a Reading Program near you!  
Happy Reading Everyone♥
