About My Dayhome

About Me & My Philosophy

My name is Kerry Morrison.

Eight years ago I opened Budding Flowers Dayhome, in the North West Calgary Community of Evanston.

Over the years I have worn many hats; I worked on shift in a sawmill, taught Drama to children at the YMCA, nannied for various families, worked in retail, Stage Managed Live Theatre, Waitressed, was a Supervisor at a Cineplex Movie Theatre, was an Office Manager and an Executive Assistant.

In 2011 I decided I had had enough of Downtown Calgary and made a strategic career change, opening a dayhome, where I could finally be back working with kids.
I invested many months researching both Approved and Private Dayhomes. I ultimately opted for the Licensed and Accredited Dayhome model and chose a Dayhome Agency to assist me towards my continual Accreditation.

I was all set to vacate my Office role and open my dayhome at the end of 2011 when my husband and I were delighted to find out that I was expecting our first child. So I put my Dayhome plans on hold and was fortunate enough to be provided with maternity leave for twelve months as part of the final stages of my Office role.

In 2012 we welcomed our first daughter and finally in 2013 my Dayhome opened its doors. Two short years later in 2015 we welcomed our second daughter into the world.

Over the last eight years running my Dayhome has been a wonderfully fulfilling experience. I can’t imagine doing anything else and cherish the thought of many more years to come. I love being home with my girls and I love giving my dayhome families a wonderful place to bring their children each day.
