Little Kids Daycare Center

About Us

Little Kids Daycare Centre opened on September 3, 2002 & it honestly feels like yesterday.

Our centre has grown and changed so much over the past 14 years.  The commitment of our centre and staff remains the same, we strive to provide quality childcare to each little person who comes through our doors.

In 2015 we changed things around and incorporated an infant class into our program. We provide care to children 6 weeks to 10 years of age.  Little Kids continues to provide transportation to local schools & offers care during school breaks (PA days, March Break Camps etc).

We are honoured by the various awards & recognitions we have received from the community.  We are Members in good standing with Quality First & the Association of Daycare Operators.  Giving Back is very important to us, we are always donating to various children's sports programs, hospitals & most recently we committed donating a portion of our registration fees to Halton Food For Thought.

THANK YOU!! 2018 Platinum Award! (WHAT!!) It's always my favourite email!

How many years? Really?

​I joined Little Kids Daycare in 2002 when my Mom opened

the centre.  She had always been a childcare provider and it was her dream

to open a childcare centre.  I was working as a Child & Youth Worker in a

company that I loved but I was ready for a change and looking into

returning to school; she convinced me to join her at the centre - so I did. 


I enjoyed it much more than I expected & returned to school to complete the ECE program.  I spent a couple of years working in the classrooms while attending school part time.  I was promoted to Assistant Supervisor in 2004 & became the Supervisor in 2005.  I truly love what I do & have been blessed all to find meaningful work where I continue to learn & grow!

In 2010, I applied for a business loan and purchased the centre.  I can't even tell you how exciting this was for me.  I've always been an entrepreneur at heart and being a business owner of "my baby" was life changing. 

On a personal note, I am blessed to be a proud Mama of two (Isabelle, 12  & Marcus, 10).  I raise these two not so little people with my husband, Rick.  We live in Oakville & our house is also home to most children who live within walking distance or can convince their parents to drop them off,  Our house is grand central & for this I am forever grateful.  

Clearly I love children & not just my own but everyone else's too!  Oakville is a beautiful community to be a part of.  It's family focused and centered around children.  I am an active part of this community through my neighbourhood, work, school & charity.

I have more hobbies, passions & interests than I have time for so I squeeze in what I can.  I am a bookworm experimental chef & enthusiastic baker.  Travelling & learning about other cultures is so exciting for me.  I love painting & DIY projects.  I am happiest in the great outdoors, hiking, boating & beach, preferably in the sunshine but I've recently learned how to ski & am trying to embrace winter sports.


I'm grateful that you took the time to read through our website & for making your child such a priority in your busy life that you are doing your research.

I look forward to meeting you & your family soon!
