Welcome to Yogikiddos

My name is Maria Zahr, and I have been working with children almost a decade . My idea of a fun time was to watch and take care of small children. I love being a part of their daily lives, and helping to teach them, protect them, and help them grow and learn. I believe in the importance of unstructured free play time, which should still involve fun educational development child which excludes watching TV or Ipad.

I have over 5 years experience as a school teacher working with mixed ages of children in a variety of settings (School French teacher, volunteered as a sub-school teacher, pre-school and Yoga/meditation instructor, and more).

More About Us

I have my current certificate standard Child Care First Aid and CPR/AED, current police clearance and child intervention record checks for myself and Husband.

I received my Child Development Assistant certificate “Level 1”, French Literature Bachelors Degree and Children’s yoga and meditation instructor certificate.

I offer an independent programming that follows an emergent curriculum, and we spend time outside every day. I have a smoking and pet free home, and I serve healthy, home-made meals and snacks daily, and protect the children’s senses by maintaining a media-free environment and offering safe material toys with high standards. This helps children develop their own minds and creativity, and allows them to grow as leaders in the world. We are outside whenever the weather permits, at least once or twice every day.

My location is ideal and has a high fenced backyard, equipped with safety arrangements to be a safe children play area, as well. I’m in the Thorncliffe area of Calgary, just off of 64th Ave NE. I live two blocks down from a playground specially built for 2-5 year-old’s, and 3 blocks from a larger playground and field. I’m also about a three blocks away from the Judith Umbach library (parents volunteering would be highly welcomed).

My Dayhome is open Monday to Friday, from 7:30 am to 5 pm, please contact me at yogikiddos@outlook.com or call at (403-422-0933) for inquiries or registration.
