Hi, my name is Debbie!
"I teach to enable, enliven and encourage"
While my background post secondary education and continual ongoing training have allowed me to gain expertise in the field of Early Childhood, I believe my greatest strength is my passion for working with young children. I have been with Children's House Satellite Family Day Home program since 1993 (and over 40 children in my care later) I still continue to find joy in welcoming, nurturing and teaching in my North side Day Home.
I reinforce my philosophy, "CHILDREN ARE ABLE, THEY LEARN THROUGH PLAY" by expanding on their interests and needs and providing them with experiences to learn though such play. My years of experience has taught me well what children respond to. I offer a large playroom with a variety of toys and activities which I feel makes my day home a unique place to learn and grow. I offer many child related play areas: Literature and Quiet, Dramatic Play, Blocks, Sand and Water, Manipulative Centre, Art as well as a large outdoor area to run, climb and play. I also transport children and we can be found at the Public Libraries for story times and book lending, the Family Centre for Day Time Family Day Play Time in their large playroom, as well as outings to many beautiful parks and playgrounds our city has to offer.
During my free time I am busy making great memories with my husband, two grown daughters and our lovable basset hound Daisy.
I would love to have the opportunity to further discuss my services and unique program available to your child and family.

Hello and welcome! My name is Tammie; I am a Child and Youth Care Worker and have met the requirements to obtain my Level One- Orientation Qualification Certificate in Early Childhood Education. I have been a provider with Children’s House Satellite Family Day Home Program since August 2006. I am located on the North side of Lethbridge.
I absolutely love my job. I run a play based program focusing on the importance of learning through play. I also utilize community programs that are offered throughout the city as part of my activity programming. I take the children on daily outings which include different parks, play groups, spray parks and the library to mention just a few. I also offer a wide variety of play centres that focus on the interests of the children in my care.
I have two boys of my own who are school aged who have grown up in my day home environment. I feel very fortunate to have been able to guide them in a play based environment.
I look forward to the possibility in working with your family!
Thank you for looking into Children’s House Satellite Family Day Home Program!
Hello to all! My name is Debb and I have a day home in west Lethbridge called Tiny Miracles!
My husband and I have a young son born in 2016 and a chocolate lab named James Bond.
Our home is smoke free and nut friendly.
We are very family orientated and are excited to welcome children and their families into our home.
We have a big backyard complete with many outdoor materials and a large vegetable garden that will be incorporated into our daily learning activities and menu planning.
Activity planning is posted on the Parent Information Board and includes activities such as dancing, painting, baking, reading, learning about the environment, habitats and animals around us and so much more. Activity planning is created on the children's interests, ideas and input and is focused on play based opportunities and building positive friendships with each other.
As a family, we enjoy camping, going for walks, playing in the sunshine in the backyard with James, and music. Some of my interests and favorite things to do are reading especially to my son, trying out new dishes to cook and baking.
We look forward to meeting you and creating wonderful memories that you and your children will remember and cherish for a long time.
Thank you for considering Tiny Miracles Day Home!
