Women and Children Smiling

Each person whose life is touched by Koala Park Daycare is equally important. Our existence goes beyond childcare.

Koala Park Daycare was built on a foundation of family values. It is a place where parents, children, staff members, as well as the community, come together as a family, one unit, to create a trusted and safe environment where children can play, learn and grow with us. Koala Park Daycare is Your Home Away from Home.

From the first hello of the day to the last goodbye, we want every child to feel safe, nurtured, and excited to learn and grow with us, and for you to consider us a true partner in the development and education of your child and an extension of your family.

We go beyond what's expected, creating a one-of-a-kind educational experience for the children we care for and the families who cherish them and whom we serve.

PARENTS LOVE Koala Park Daycare, FIND OUT WHY:

MARCI

"I'm so glad we chose Koala Park. Everyone there is so sweet and caring and it's such a warm and homey place. My son just loves it. The kids get to do so many fun things like art projects, yoga and music class. I especially love that each month has a theme and all the activities are planned around that theme (Fall, emotions & feelings, shapes, etc.) And I love that they're eating homemade meals! I highly recommend Koala Park to any family."

 

CAIT

"We absolutely love Koala Park! Every day we are confident at drop off that our infant son is safe and well taken care of. The teachers are all so kind. You can tell they love what they do and adore the children. The space is clean and bright and very inviting for kids of all age ranges. The teachers are responsive and easy to speak with. Having the confidence and peace of mind knowing your child is in good hands during the day is priceless. I can't say enough great things about Koala Park!

 

NICOLE

"Koala Park has been a amazing for our family! Our son has been going there since he was just 3 months old and he is now 3 years old. As a first-time mom, the thought of sending my baby off somewhere during the day while I returned to work was so awful, but I quickly got adjusted and extremely comfortable thanks to the loving, warm staff and safe environment at KP2. Thank you Koala Park!"

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Each person whose life is touched by Koala Park Daycare is equally important. Our existence goes beyond childcare.


CHILD

At the heart of everything we do at Koala Park Daycare, is the child. Surrounded by love, care, guidance, and the early-childhood educational expertise of our staff, no area of a child's safety or development is left to chance.

STAFF

On the front lines and never forgotten, we pay special attention to our caregivers & educators. We want them to be deeply engaged, continually growing, and remain with us for the long term, which means the world to parents and children who delight in seeing happy, nurturing and familiar faces every day.

PARENTS

The needs of working parents are equally important as the care and education of their children. We strive to earn your trust and create a meaningful and respectful relationship with you, one that will help you meet the challenges of balancing work and life.

COMMUNITY

Our relationships extend beyond the four walls of our child care program through supportive partnerships and participation within the communities we serve. Our goal is to be a valuable asset, a helping hand and a loving giving member of our community and ensure we instill the same values in our children. 

Koala Park Daycare has two classrooms that are composed of mixed age groups of children who are 6 weeks to 24 months of age and another class of children from 2 through 4 years of age who learn how to care, help, work, play and cooperate with each other. We provide an inclusive and multicultural, bilingual setting that helps all children become self-confident individuals. Within our supportive environment, your child can acquire a solid sense of security, a positive self-image and a lifelong enthusiasm for learning.

We look forward to having you and your child become part of our growing loving family and our lovely home environment becoming your Home Away from Home! 

Karina Wyllie – Founder and Executive Director

 

To support our philosophy, Koala Park Daycare will strive to be consistent with these values: 

Child Centered

Teachers facilitate each child’s development based on the child’s interests and individuality, helping learn about themselves and the world.

Play

Play offers rich experiences in which staff nurtures each child’s cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development, guiding and challenging each child to progress at their own pace.

Quality Staff

Koala Park Daycare recognizes the importance of quality staff in all areas, and recruits, retains, and supports highly qualified and skilled educators.

Open and Accepting

Koala Park Daycare is open and accepting of all children and families. Koala Park Daycare cultivates an expectation of respect: that all children, families, and staff will be treated with respect and treat others the same.

Partnerships With Families

Koala Park Daycare is committed to working collaboratively with families to promote a child’s success.

Community Driven

Koala Park Daycare is rooted in and contributes to the Communities they serve, by providing useful resources and support to parents when they need it and through local partnerships and donation drives, because for us people come first.

 

Meet the Owner

As a working mom, our founder and director, Karina, understands the struggle parents face when looking for safe, loving, and affordable childcare. When looking within her community for a suitable place to send her daughter, Karina often found the choices too limited or too expensive. That's why she opened her own daycare business so moms like her could have a secure, nurturing, educational and reasonably priced daycare to send their children to.

Since its founding, Koala Park Daycare has given parents peace of mind by providing their children with quality care and a fun educational experience. Karina has made it her mission to ensure all children in the local area receive the care they deserve and that parents can rest easy and go to work each day knowing their children are in good hands.

Family Together Karina Karina and Kids
