Yvonne August

Daycare Manager

I raised 5 beautiful children. When my children graduated from school and had their own lives and careers, I had to find my path. So I completed my own schooling, got my grade 12 certificate, went to college for two years and received my Early Childhood Educator, Infant/Toddler and Special Needs Certificates. This has been my goal for my long as I can remember, working in a daycare, helping young mothers, and parents joining the work force. Where we believe in the importance of safe nurturing environment supervised by caring, qualified Early Childhood Educators. A place where children build trust, feel secure and are able to develop to their fullest potential. I am now working in my community daycare for the passed 14 years and loving it.
