Why a daycare? Aren’t there enough?
Totally Kids Daycare Inc. is the brainchild of Dawn Thomas-Cameron who, after spending a weekend at the Prairie School for Union Women, learned that accessible, quality daycare in Saskatchewan was seriously lacking. Less than 12% of children 5 and under, province wide, had access to quality, licensed daycare. Her own child was on a three year waiting list for childcare. This is when Dawn committed herself to being a part of the solution. Totally Kids Daycare Inc. was born.
Coming from a family philosophy of the importance of nature, community, the environment and a Waldorf inspired “learning through play” perspective, gave Dawn an immediate direction and foundation for the philosophy of this centre. It was not long before 6 other individuals jumped at the opportunity to be a part of it all. It took less than 3 weeks to find a Board of Directors just as dedicated as she was.
Looking into the future – Totally Kids Daycare hopes that it will be able to find a location and begin serving the Regina area by the end of 2016. Then – the sky is the limit!
