Laura Partyka (Owner, E.C.E, S.N., I.T.)
Hi! And Welcome to Owl's Tree Daycare. My name is Laura, and I have been in childcare in one capacity or another for 15+ years. I have managed multiple programs over the years and love love LOVE what I do. Child development facinates me, and I am patient, consistent, and have a creative soul. I believe that this is what makes a great ECE. One who not only can keep children safe, and happy, but one who has fun with children, engages with them, and finds joy in the little miracles each day presents us with.
I now find myself with two young boys, living on a farm, and developing a program that I've always dreamed of! A program where children have hills and grass to play on; where mud, water, fresh air, and trees are our environment; where children can experience nature and their environment safely and without just looking at them in pictures or the odd field trip. Here on our farm the children will experience the day to day with farm animals, dogs, cats, horses, and tonnes of wildlife. They will play with natural materials and experience what it’s like to build structures, pick eggs, and pet sheep. They will play outside, every age, every day; in the rain, sunshine, wind, and snow. All the experiences that our local environment has to offer is right here.
I am excited to hear from you and meet your little ones. Please contact me at your convenience with any questions you may have.
