Hi, my name is Tamara Bridal. I am the owner and manager of You Care, We Care Daycare. I have been in the childcare field for eight years now, five of which I owned and operated my own in home daycare. My in home daycare grew so fast that we needed to expand to a bigger facility. That is when we moved it to Ferndale Elementary School where we have been located as a licensed group child care center since 2008. Because of my love for children I completed my Infant and Toddler Diploma and have my Early Childhood Education certificate. I am currently working towards getting my Bachelors of Arts in Child and Youth Care. I encourage my staff to attend workshops to improve their training. I lead by example, some of my training includes: First Aid, Montessori training, Level I sign language, emergency preparedness and food safe, just to name a few. I am continuously attending workshops. I have been married for 23 years to my husband Darin. We have three beautiful girls, Esteel, Tanesha and Shaqala. We live in Mission and are all actively involved in the community. I can honestly say that, I wish I knew what I know now, before I had my girls, because as an ECE I truly see the importance of daycare and preschool for our children. Many parents thank me on a daily basis for what their children are learning at our center. I give credit and a huge applause to my staff.

Hi, my name is Angela McCarthy. I am a qualified Infant/Toddler Educator and work in the infant/toddler classroom. I have been in the field since 2004 and love the infant & toddler age group best! My favorite thing about working with infant & toddlers, is helping them learn new skills, like putting their own jackets on, or feeding themselves, or potty training. The children reach so many milestones during this period, that it is so exciting. I have always known that I wanted to be a teacher and make a difference in a child's life. I am excited to become a part of this great team and look forward to working with your children! I have been a volunteer Brownie leader with Girl guides of Canada for the past 15 years.
