Can you believe that June is almost over? It passed by so quickly, and now summer is just a couple of days away. Our summer holidays are at the end of July, and we'll be closed for Canada Day on July 1st, as well. 


We'll be running our Early Purchase Bonus through the summer as well, so be sure to get your hours before the 24th of the previous month to take advantage. 


The summer months and the hot weather make us want to relax a bit. Why not read the newsletter with a glass of lemonade?

Friendly Reminder About Summer Holidays


The Early Purchase Bonus Deadline for July hours is just around the corner and we know you'll want to LOG IN and take advantage of the 3 hour bonus for you 10 or 24 hour packages purchased before June 24. 
Before you make your decision, though, be sure to check out our Google Calendar and make note of our summer holidays - July 29th - Aug. 6th, 2013. Buddings is also closed on Monday, July 1st, to celebrate Canada Day... and Camping!
We always post our closures, special events, and daily snacks on there, so adding a bookmark to your browser and checking in from time to time is a great way to know what's going on at Buddings! 

More Spaces in the Mornings!


As you may have noticed, when you drop off your little buddies, the daycare is usually full of kids. This is perfectly normal, and many daycares are like this all the time. We're proud to be joining the ranks! 

The frustrating part might be that the time you'd like to book is one of our popular times. Well, if those hours usually land in the mornings, we have great news! We have extra spots available for the hours from 9am - 1pm. 

If your morning spots are booked up, just send a note to Talia (email works best), with your request, and you'll be booked in, just like that. 

And don't forget, if you're booking into any hour with more than 2 days advance notice, we always have reserve spots that you can access by emailing Talia.

Business of Impact Video Features Buddings!

We only need 150 more views on our video to hit our goal of 1,000 views for the month. Help us get there! 

You can post it on Facebook, or Twitter, or just share it to your friends via email. Do you know anyone who could benefit from flexible care for toddlers or preschoolers? Of course you do! Help us help them!

And don't forget, when your friends apply to Buddings, you get a 3 hour bonus! Share widely!

From the Blog: All Natural Soap Made from Berries

At Buddings, we love to try new things, especially if it can reduce the chemicals in our lives, and make things easier on the environment, too. This time around, we had an even more important reason to look for a new laundry detergent: one of our buddies was reacting to the one we have. 

At the Soap Dispensary, we discovered that soap can grow on trees! Check out our blog for all the details: Soap Nuts??? That's Nuts!
