Nuria C.

I am a writer, graphic designer, and illustrator, as well as a wife, and mother of two girls and a fantastic Goldendoodle named Copper.

I decided to stay at home to raise my daughters, and during that time I have intensely educated myself in early-childhood learning and psychology, and spent innumerable hours volunteering at our local elementary school, either in class, at the library, or as a substitute Spanish teacher in the mornings (I still volunteer at the library though my girls are no longer at the school).

I believe that nothing you do for children is ever wasted, and when the children in my community do well the entire community thrives. I also believe that the learning and social interactions that take place in the early years are fundamental in building a solid base for a child's development later in life.

Type:house

Nunu’s Daycare is located in the neighborhood of Tam O’ Shanter, a block away from Richard Bennett Elementary School and two blocks away from the neighborhood’s park. It is in a fully-finished daylight basement. We have a counter with a sink, small appliances, a full refrigerator, a bathroom adapted to small people’s needs, and a tea and coffee station for the parents, because who doesn’t enjoy a nice cup of coffee in the morning? As you enter the first thing you notice is the L-shaped “quiet couch” that dominates the center of the room. A small round table sits in front of it. Next door we have access to a gym for a bit of yoga and to wiggle and dance. Under the stairs is our “wonder cove” filled with toys and items that will foster imaginative play. And lastly, of course, we have reserved a corner for “messy fun” like finger painting or playing with sand and water.
