Get hopping and save money on child care in Langley

New care and early childhood education provider Tiny Hoppers comes to Fraser Valley

If you’re a parent of a young child or children in Langley, you’ve no doubt felt the stress of trying to find child care in the area. Like many B.C. communities, Langley is stretched when it comes to spaces.

Tiffany Wang, Katy Lu, Betty Zhu and Summer Wang at the new Tiny Hoppers Early Learning in Willoughby Town Centre are helping address that demand, but they’re also looking to step up the level of daycare and early childhood education in the area.

Looking to start your kids’ education on the right foot?

When children’s interests are incorporated into their early learning experiences, Tiffany says, they are often more likely to stay keen as they move through their school years.

“Our professionally trained teachers observe what the children are interested in, then bring those elements into their daily activities. That way every child can participate in determining what they see and learn in school,” Tiffany says, pointing to Tiny Hoppers’ play-based philosophy. “We really focus on that when introducing basic math or science, numeracy and literacy.”

Community feel positive at Willoughby

From the moment Wang and her team visited the 6,600-square-foot Langley site that would become home to Canada’s 26th Tiny Hoppers Early Learning location – there’s also 5,000 sq. ft. of play area outside – they felt it was an ideal place from which to service the many young families who need care, she says.

There’s five classrooms, an onsite kitchen to provide lunches and snacks, and dedicated spaces for infant, toddler and preschooler care, junior and senior kindergarten ages, plus before and after-school programs for kids up to age 12. Tiny Hoppers is set up to help with many different care needs for working parents.

“Although we just opened three weeks ago, we already have a wait list for our infant, toddler and before and after school programs,” Tiffany says. “We’re also expecting wait lists for our JK and preschool programs as we grow over time.”

Save money by registering at the grand opening

As a parent or caregiver, it’s important to know your young child or children are well looked after when you head off to work.

With that in mind, Tiny Hoppers is inviting families to stop by their facility for a visit this Sunday, Oct. 21, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., as they host their grand opening/Halloween party onsite at Suite A230-20689 Willoughby Town Centre Dr.

As a special reward for coming down, families signing up their children on the day see the $150 application fee waived. For the kids, Elsa the Snow Queen and Spiderman will be there and available for photos; plus face painting and arts and crafts stations will be set up, while parents will enjoy the prize draws and giveaways.
