Home Child Care – Esther’s Program


Details for Home Child Care – Esther’s Program

My name is Esther and I provide Home Child Care through Compass ELC.  I am a mother of 4 children and granny to 3 grandchildren. My journey in Child Care has come full circle in 40 years. For 25 years I did Home Child Care, then started working supply for Compass ELC (Kawartha Child Care).  During my time at the centres I decided to apprentice to become an Early Childhood Educator and completed the program over 3 years.  Over 10 years I had the opportunity to work School Age which allowed for opportunities to work with other age groups like infants, toddlers and preschoolers. As life changed and opportunities become available I made the decision to go back to doing Home Child Care.  As Compass ELC has the same values of children, families and has Home Child Care Support this gave me the opportunity to combine the connections and relationships I have built over the years.

I offer Home Child Care for School Age Children (ages 4 to 12) before/after school, PA days and Holidays. Flexible with hours and needs of families.

To what I offer depends on the children’s interest and where they take things, so I asked the children what they felt Home Child Care offers them. Celebrating birthdays, Geocaching , sewing, experience/learning more things, ability to go on bus, doing community things, baking, making slime, arts , crafts, playing outside, making mud pies, having fun, being around family and friends.
