Caregiver of the Month


Katie

 

Katie Bishop.Caregiver2.10Apr17

My name is Katie Bishop and I have worked with children in many different capacities for a number of years.  My educational background is in psychology, child development, and the principles of learning.  I am committed to furthering my education through workshops, online courses, reading, and any other professional development opportunities available.

I feel strongly that the ideal environment for healthy infant and toddler development is first and foremost a safe and loving one.  A mature, calm role model willing to allow the children as much independence as can be done safely is key to achieving that.  I believe that children learn best through play.  It is important to have a good balance of independent exploration (indoors and outdoors), as well as planned activities that are tailored to the interests and abilities of the group.  All snacks and meals are prepared according to Canada’s Food Guide.

In my space, I have a large playroom with lots of natural light, separate sleeping area, kitchen and bathrooms all on the same floor, as well as a large, outdoor play area located in a quiet, family-oriented neighbourhood.

I am eager to put my education, knowledge and calm demeanour to good use by offering home child care, licensed through The HUB Child & Family Centre.

I am available for full time care, Monday through Friday, from 6am to 5:30pm.

I am located in the Fenwood Gardens area, just south of Belleville along Highway #62 and on school bus routes for Massassaga-Rednersville, Kente and St. Michael’s schools.

Our commitment to the families in our care.

The children are invited to many different play opportunities throughout the day-all of which are designed to encourage independent thought, extend learning and encompass all domains of childhood-physical, social, emotional, cognitive and communication. The children are viewed as capable and competent, encouraged to try new experiences and offered responsive relationships with their caregiver, who provides a solid foundation for learning through a sense of belonging, well being, engagement and expression (the key foundations for learning from How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years.)
