RAISING BEAUTIFUL BEINGS: A BRIGHTER FUTURE
“Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
– Roald Dahl

With my Mary-Poppins-like imagination, I continually generate magical moments during childcare.
Each child’s learning. wellbeing, creativity, integrity, and growth, drive my passion for mindfully mentoring these little people. I infuse wisdom and giggles into all activities, providing them with a foundation on which to build themselves into kind, joyful, balanced, and mindful individuals.
Wonder, open-mindedness, unity consciousness, and love for all others are the pillars of my childcare education.
I expose children to explore the diverse cultures, belief systems, and gender roles through carefully-chosen, progressive storybooks — like Native American supernatural tales, stories from overseas, or books with non-traditional gender roles.

Katrina is warm, kind, engaging and energetic. One of our favourite things about Katrina’s approach to childcare is her ability to engage with kids in a genuine and fun way.
Katrina shares our belief in the importance of being in nature and often takes our kids to parks and on adventures. Katrina brings fun activities and shares educational games and stories with our kids. We love to hear stories from our children about the time they’ve spent with Katrina!
We trust Katrina to take our children to other parts of the city in our family vehicle and have found that this service is especially nice when we require childcare for longer amounts of time.
Since our first meeting, Katrina has regularly looked after our children and they always respond with joy when they find out that Katrina is coming over!
I would (and have) wholeheartedly recommend Katrina as a babysitter! We are so grateful to have found her!
