We are an in-home family child care facility operating in North Vancouver. It is our goal to provide child centered care that is also in line with the individual values and preferences of families. Blue Moon Child Care is a family run business with qualified and experienced staff. Our manager has a BA in Psychology with a focus on child development and education and all staff are first aid certified. We have used our combined experience to develop a play-based program that provides a valuable space for children to learn, have fun, and flourish.
We provide a family oriented child care service in which we promote flexibility and communication. Our main focus is on enhancing child development in many areas (cognition, interpersonal skills, motor skills, creativity) in enjoyable and age appropriate ways. Beyond that, we seek to provide a healthy and open environment where both children and parents feel comfortable expressing their needs and concerns.
Blue Moon is a family owned and operated business and the Manager has been caring for children for 13+ years. She decided to pursue a degree in Psychology at Simon Fraser University and focused her courses around child development. After graduation, she continued to pursue courses in child education and volunteered her time at daycares. With her education and experience in mind, she opened her own daycare centre in November 2018.
Blue Moon provides a warm, family-like environment where children can explore their own interests while also being exposed to new experiences. As someone who has grown up with art, Blue Moon’s Manager decided to design a program where children have a chance to learn about music, painting, crafts and creativity. It is our belief that the program we created, a mix of reading and learning, free play and creative opportunities makes for an environment where a child can truly thrive!
