Children's singer Rob Joy visited the daycare for a Sing-Along show. His guitar-strummin’, toe-tappin' mix of original and traditional songs was so interactive and fun! The kids at daycare were singing to the music, engaged in movement, and playing along with their own instruments. For more pics, login to Parent Corner on our website.

Tricky Ricky the Magician was a big hit with his entertaining and engaging magic show. We had a very captive audience! It was interactive as he got the children involved in the show and even brought his very clever rabbit "Lucy" for some animal magic. Adding kids entertainment to our summer programming enriches learning at our daycare in Vaughan.

The Smile-Group Bubble Show came to Discovery Point! This is an exclusive performance filled with fascinating bubble magic, juggling elements and cool music. It includes a variety of bubble tricks of different shapes and sizes, letting the kids be right inside the bubbles and watching them rise all around them, sphere bubbles, volcano bubbles, and bubble tennis. The children lit up with wonder and amazement! The Bubble Show visit is a highlight this month as part of our programming to bring both educational and magical moments to the child care experience at our daycare in Vaughan.

When a children do something hurtful, even if accidental, sometimes parents try to force apologies from their children to rectify the situation. Usually, they’ll give the kid a stern look, and ask, “Hey, what do you say?” Then, when the child mutters a robotic “sorry,” all is good! Manners! We’re teaching them!
