Jazmin and familyEasing the burden of working parents 

Jazmin found peace of mind with the Canoe Landing Childcare Centre

“Life was complicated. As a working mom, I had to put my kids in the only childcare that was on the school bus route. That place wasn’t well-managed and it was far from home. With my husband travelling so much for work, I didn’t have any other options.

"When I found out about the new Canoe Landing Childcare Centre, I went to an information session and was so impressed, I signed up my older son, Daniel, that day. 

"Childcare centres like Canoe Landing save the life of working parents, taking such great care of the kids on PA days and school closures. It’s such peace of mind knowing I don’t have to scramble for childcare on those days, and Daniel is super-happy with the staff there. He’s so enthusiastic about going and I know he’s in good hands.

"For me, life is still busy but I am grateful for Canoe Landing. I look forward to the time when Daniel can return to his routine at the Centre after COVID-19, and when my younger son, Aaron, can join him there.”
