Welcome to Timber Tots!

Timber Tots Child Care and Junior Kindergarten is a licensed facility centrally located near Westwood Lake in Nanaimo, BC.

We are a licensed family child care facility with a preschool-based program designed to prepare children for kindergarten through a combination of play and structured activities. This unique program offers a small group size in order to maximize learning and develop meaningful relationships.

I am a qualified teacher with years of experience working with children both in classroom and daycare settings. Daily activities at Timber Tots include: circle time, arts, crafts, music & movement, table work, free time, plenty of outdoor play time in our large backyard and much more! I am always excited to apply my education and experience to provide your child with quality care in an educational and fun environment! My goal is to prepare each child both socially and academically for a successful kindergarten experience.

We are currently accepting applications for children 3-5 years. Hours are 9am-2pm.

Please contact me (Erin Dahle) to set up an appointment to find out if Timber Tots is a good fit for your child!
