Meet The Staff
It takes a village to raise a child... I would love to be a part of that village
My name is Cherice -known to the littles as Miss Reese- and I own and operate Over The Rainbow Dayhome. I am a single Mom of a wonderful boy, and my dayhome is my career, not a hobby. Working with children has always been my passion and to be able to do so every day, and become an influential part of these kid's lives is a dream come true to me! Nothing has ever made me happier and I care for and love every child in my care like they are a part of my own family.
I have years of experience working with children. As well as providing care in my home for many years, I have experience running children's and youth programs and working in daycare centres, and summer camps. I am dedicated to professional developement, and staying on top of all new research in early childhood education, and attend annual seminars to ensure that I never miss out on new information that help me provide the best environment for your precious little ones.
Shelly is our wonderful dayhome assistant. She is a mom of one who loves kids, and was looking for something to keep her busy/fulfilled while her son is school. Shelly is available most days to cover if I have to run out for an appointment or am unavailable for any reason, so that our kiddos days are not interrupted, and parents don't have to miss work, as well as assistance on field trips to keep our ratio low/manageable. She is warm and nurturing, and our littles love when Miss Shelly is here.
Shelly has completed her criminal background check with vulnerable sector check, first-aid, and CPR, and is trained on all of our policies.
Alyssa is our ah-ma-zing second assistant, who helps out when Shelly is unavailable, or for longer days. She is an ex-daycare worker and dayhome owner, who only closed to focus more on her son, and an energetic, and loving mom of one, who loves to get in and play with the kids, and make sure they always have a smile on their faces. She loves this job and wouldn't have it any other way.
Alyssa has completed her criminal background check with vulnerable sector check, first-aid, infant and child CPR, and has her early childhood education certificate, and autism training.
