W hen Frida Lacaria went in search of a day­care for her first child back in 1999, noth­ing sat­is­fied her high stan­dards when it came to nur­tur­ing the de­vel­op­men­tal, in­tel­lec­tual and emo­tional well­ness of chil­dren — so she de­cided to cre­ate her own day­care cen­tre. Com­bin­ing two decades of hands-on busi­ness ex­pe­ri­ence with her pas­sion for pro­mot­ing what she be­lieves are three of the great­est as­sets a child can pos­sess — in­de­pen­dence, self-es­teem and con­fi­dence — she opened the doors to Chil­dren’s Magic Mo­ments in 2003. Eleven years later, Lacaria never tires of watch­ing chil­dren evolve into unique in­di­vid­u­als as they ex­plore the en­vi­ron­ment she built. “When we cre­ate our pro­grams, I keep in mind ev­ery­thing I’d want my own child to have,” says Lacaria, who re­cently com­pleted a two-year holis­tic cook­ing course. “From our sunny en­vi­ron­ment and day- to- day ac­tiv­i­ties to the home- cooked meals our res­i­dent cook pre­pares us­ing or­ganic, whole and lo­cally grown foods, we strive to pro­mote healthy growth and devel­op­ment. Each day it gives me great pride and joy to watch the fruit of our labour un­fold be­fore my eyes.”
