Biz X magazine June 2019 Vol 22 Issue 6
ON THE COVER — “Feel At Home” — The Parenting Biz, Page 18
When it comes to your child, you want the best. Creativity, education and professional care are just a few of the important items you expect to find in a daycare suitable for your child. Good news . . . there are many businesses and non-profit organizations across Windsor Essex that provide these things and more! Biz X investigates a handful of local daycares to provide a breakdown on what they’re all about and hopefully help you make the difficult decision of who will care for your child while you work, just a little bit easier. COVER CREDITS In south Windsor, Little Stars Child Care’s iconic red house in the backyard of their 3139 Dougall Avenue location is a favourite play and meeting place as (from left) Quwen Collins, Sam Martin, Naya Awad and their favourite Teacher/Director, Tricia Fletcher, prove, in our cover shot.
