Program

“We Learn, Love, and Laugh!”

Our Laurel Canyon WeeCare is nestled at the foot of Laurel Canyon near the entrance to the Mt. Olympus neighborhood. We have a warm and happy learning environment. Afternoons in the spacious backyard will delight your child and storytime fits perfectly in my carpeted sunroom. Every child will be given an extra touch of attention and be given the space to smile, laugh, learn, and grow with friends. The Laurel Canyon WeeCare is a place where families are welcome, love is shared, and fun is required!

Philosophy

Self expression and social interaction are the core pillars of the Laurel Canyon WeeCare. Children learn such valuable skills in regards to communication and emotional development during these early years. Throughout the year, we will use play and educational activities to strengthen their ability to function and communicate with their peers. Visual art and activities will be part of our daily work as I love sharing my passion for art with the children. Most importantly this will be a safe space for your child to become their true selves.

Teachers

Ms. Marta - Director

Formerly a career accountant, I have shifted my focus back to childcare as it brings me such joy. Having raised my beautiful daughter (now an adult), and my young nieces and nephews before her, I have always been enveloped in childcare. I am most passionate about their ability to communicate and learn so swiftly. I believe learning how to share feelings and expressing them is vital to the development of young minds and I make that a part of each day's activities. I, myself, have a strong passion for art, music, and culture and I love sharing these passions with youngsters!

Romy Gabriel - Teaching Assistant

After studying Early Childhood Education for 2 years, Romy began her teaching career at a play-based preschool in Naperville, Illinois. Later, she went on to a private Reggio-Emilia school where she implemented curriculum with 1-2 year olds. As a certified ECE teacher, Romy has taught many different teaching methods, most recently the Montessori discipline. Romy brings 12 years experience to Laurel Canyon WeeCare school. She is also the mother of an 8 year old girl.

My home is your home, and a safe place for your children to play, learn, and grow alongside friends. I have a created a spacious indoor/outdoor environment including a large backyard where we will enjoy a number of nature activities. Natural light is bountiful for our indoor activities as my home is full of big bright windows. My home provides children with a plentiful amount of space to explore, laugh, and learn each day! I can't wait to meet you and to share my beautiful home with your family.

We also have a daycare cat named Frank Sinatra. He is very sweet natured, affectionate and a great entertainer.
