Amigos Dayhome was founded in 2017 by Maria Botero a childhood educator, who has run a dayhome for over 10 years, and Joselis Hernandez with great experience in Safety and Occupational Health for over 18 years.

We have decided to open more dayhomes in Calgary because we want to offer parents the best high-quality Dayhome services for families in Calgary, where we can accommodate to each family needs (price, schedule and expectations), getting the best prices, flexibility of schedules and meeting your children learning expectations.

As mothers and Early childhood educators, we have found that it was really hard to find a good dayhome in Calgary, where our children can go to learn because we consider that the first 5 years of life are really important for our children to absorb everything around them. the children that are in care at our dayhomes get the opportunity to be exposed to learning experiences at all times.

We DO NOT offer babysitting, we offer programs where our children improve their skills and get prepared for school and for life.
