For the Boettcher Family, having safe and trustworthy childcare is a must.
His parents, Shayla and Tyson, both work in healthcare. Their positions require much attention to detail. Each day, they are responsible for keeping their patients safe while continuing to face the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. As parents, having an equally safe and controlled environment for Jackson to learn and thrive in allows them to be fully present at work — without worry.
At all 8 of our childcare centres, we’re incredibly proud to serve families just like the Boettchers, whose work directly impacts the well-being of our community.
Jackson’s parents told us more about their lives outside of daycare…
What do you do for work?
Mom is a Registered Nurse in Labour & Delivery. Dad is in his final year of residency in Orthopedic surgery.
What do your children love to do for a favorite class?
Jackson loves to draw and color!
Any activities you most love to do in the fall, together?
Family bike rides. Off-leash dog-park walks as a family are our favorite.
Which family meals you love to eat together?
We love summertime BBQ food. (The weather is changing so quickly!)
Name your favourite books to read before bedtime…
The Gruffalo – by Julia Donaldson
I Love You Through and Through – by Bernadette Rossetti-Shustak
What is the best place in your city/community to visit?
We love Jurassic Forest for an outdoor adventure, but it’s now closed for the winter season.
We spend a lot of time walking Buena Vista off-leash dog park and Terwillegar off-leash dog park. Prior to COVID-19 restrictions, we would go to Servus Credit Union Place to the pool (on a weekly basis!) and the Royal Alberta Museum.
What is the best part about attending Kepler Academy?
Kepler Academy has exceeded our expectations. The center has qualified, loving educators which is reassuring as a parent.
They have the tools and ability to offer and provide a daily curriculum for my child to ensure activities are age appropriate and engaging. There is a chef on site, which takes the stress off me as a working parent to provide lunches for my child during the week, as I know he is eating nutritious and well-balanced meals. The kids get outside playtime every day, weather dependent, in a safe enclosed, and locked space.
Overall, our whole family feels very safe and supported by the Kepler staff!
Thank you, Boettcher Family. We’re glad to have you as part of our Kepler Family community.
