Hello Families and Guardians!
My name is Brenda Irvine and I am the Founder/Director of Simply Fun Childcare Centers. I have been working with children and in the childcare sector for 49 years and enjoy every moment of nurturing and caring for our youngest generation. My goal is to build a loving and nurturing environment for children to grow, learn and discover their gifts, greatness and authentic voice. Since I was a child, I have always envisioned myself on a journey with little friends fulfilling potentials with love and care. I know that many children hold back and do not feel comfortable using their voices when they are in a formal educational setting, just as I did when I was at daycare(s) and kindergarten. That is why I believe the most important thing in preparing a child for their kindergarten years is cultivating inner trust and safety within the child which guides them towards self-confidence, self-respect, and fulfillment.
A little bit about me… In 1974, I attended the Early Childhood Education program at Mount Royal College in Calgary. From 1974-1987 I taught and substituted at childcare centers in Calgary, Red Deer, Sidney and Victoria. In 1987 I opened the first location of Simply Fun Playschool and since then have opened 6 more locations here in Victoria, B.C. I now own and operate 7 successful licensed childcare centers with the help of my amazing admin team and brilliant teachers. The Simply Fun team consists of kind, caring, loving, fun qualified teachers and staff who have a thriving passion for teaching, learning, and growing. Our programs embrace transformative, play-based, nature-based curriculum in small in-home multi-aged environments which fully prepare children for their kindergarten years.
Just like myself, Simply Fun is growing and evolving every day. In the last 35+ years I have enrolled in seminars to develop and enhance my business, spirituality and personal growth. I am a mentor and facilitator for members of Living in Balance Seminars and feel as though being a mentor within this community has guided my decisions and choices in life which has led to great successful and fulfillment.
It is my mission to build a place for our precious little ones to shine their light bright and support families in doing so. So what are you waiting for?
LET YOUR CHILD'S LIGHT SHINE BRIGHT WITH US!
