Chayce provides a comfortable and safe space for kids and reassuring updates for parents through the day. Our son looks forward to going to Chayce's and we felt confident in his care right from the start.

Joanne Vajpey

Child currently attending Chayce's Day Home

Chayce is a great caregiver! Our toddler had a tough transition going into his first day home but Chayce persisted, and soon won him over. She kept us updated with honest feedback about his progress and behaviour. Her meal planning is healthy and she provides a fun educational experience.
