  Peach Blossom Childcare Centre is a brand-new facility and operates as a licensed group care for children from the age of 30 months to 5 years.  Peach Blossom seeks to develop a child’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual being. Our program endeavor to enhance all aspects of a child’s development through stimulating and nurturing experiences via a play based learning curriculum.  At Peach Blossom, we focus on children’s emerging interpersonal skills including communication, negotiation and problem-solving skills, and on their developing abilities to feel and express empathy and to regulate their emotional states. Peach Blossom uses the British Columbia Early Learning Framework as a guide to areas of learning including well-being and belonging, exploration and creativity, languages and literacy and social responsibility and diversity.

  My name is Soheila Kavkani. I was born in Tehran, Iran. I immigrated to Canada with my family in 2011.  I and Niloo- my older daughter-started our daycare because of our passion to provide a safe and loving environment for children to develop and grow. I have 15 years of experience working with children and adults in my home country. When we settled down in Vancouver, I studied Early Childhood Education- Basic. Right after finishing the program I was lucky to get a job at UBC childcare centres .After that I worked with two different daycares while studying “Early Childhood Education- Infant Toddler” program at Vancouver Community College. Finally, I ended up working at YMCA Childcare centre-Robert Lee since 2016 till a few weeks ago. Right now I am the licensee and the educator of the Peach Blossom Childcare Centre.

 My name is Niloo Rastegar. I am an assistant teacher and the manager at Peach Blossom Childcare Centre. I’m coming from a different professional background; this is my first experience in the ECE field but I always had a great relationship with children and finally I went to school and started learning academically about the early childhood education. It’s been a few years that my Mom wanted to start her own daycare centre and we started talking more serious about it when I moved back to Vancouver a few months ago. Our team work has always been good and I believe in my Mom because she has the right amount of knowledge and experience we need to start our centre and I’m going to try my best to use what I’ve learned in school as an ECE assistant.
