Sparwood Treehouse Daycare celebrates one year

Kids and cupcakes were the theme for Sparwood Treehouse Daycare's one year anniversary.

Sparwood Treehouse Daycare kids celebrated a successful first year with yummy mini cupcakes.

Just recently the Sparwood Treehouse Daycare celebrated it’s one year anniversary with kids, cupcakes and a few changes. As the first year came to a close, the daycare bid  a bittersweet farewell to former Manager Krista Woodske, and welcomed in new Manager Lori Morley, who worked as daycare staff before being promoted.

“The first year has been really successful,” says Morley. “It started off slow, but now a year later, the Infant/Toddler room is full, the 3-5 year old room is full and we have just a few spaces left in before and after school care. There are currently eight staff working at the daycare, and it is fully self sustainable,” she says.

The upcoming year will see some creative fundraising for ball pit and tons more fun as the staff hopes to do more fieldtrips and get the kids out and about in the community. “Our fundraiser for the ball pit will be a family friendly cookbook and pictures,” says Morley. “We will be inviting the kids parents to submit their favorite recipes and create a cookbook from there,” she says.

As children chomped away at cupcakes, created by Crumbs Cakery, Sparwood Treehouse Daycare staff celebrated a successful first year.
