Sonja's Home Daycare

home daycare Kitchener, Ontario


We are located in Lackner Woods Area



SHD is a privately owned daycare, operated by Sonja.  I am an ECE with 18 years of home daycare experience.

Our Daycare

The Indoor Classroom has a simple design, where children explore core concepts in the area of art, math, music, language, literacy, science and nature through sensory play and exploration.

At SHD your child will receive a quality fun, hands on, child-centered, educational and creative preschool experience.

Play is an important aspect of early learning and at the SHD intentional play is integrated through learning experience.  Intentional play allows your child to build his/her confidence.

Growth and development takes place through these uniquely designed learning areas including a circle time area for large group games, stories, and discussion as well as reading, writing, creative art, math, science, dramatic play, sensory play, water play, cooking, nature and discovery. 

SHD environment is setup to explore the great outdoors as well as indoor hands on experiences.  Your child will rotate to both indoor and outdoor environment each day.

The Outdoor Classroom provides wonderful environment for discovery and exploration as well as large motor development.

Our home childcare has a small turnover and we have had a lot of kids grow up with us. My main concern and goal in caring for your child is to see your child grow physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally to the best of his/her ability.  Please feel free to offer your advice and / or suggestions at any time.  Family childcare provides for children the comfort and experience  belonging to an extended family.  My approach to childcare is child centered and child directed.  Children are offered choices whenever possible.  Just because you are not seeing anything in the way of papers does not mean that we have not been busy all day.
