Mckenzie Lake, Mckenzie Towne.

Pingos is a private quality, warm and holistic childcare facility based in a Dayhome program. Our low ratio provokes a deep connection with your children and a mindfulness experience in their early years through playing; We believe that every child learns different, we offer a variety of methods and materials  to encourage their abilities and embrace their personalities. We understand how important this transition could be, you can be sure we will do everything to support, so you can consider us an extension of your own home. We have three locations offering our experienced care, the intuitive passion, the natural connection with our children and the open communication with the parents set us apart. More than a dayhome, we are a big Family.

She is a wonderful person and we have been extremely fortunate to have her play a big part in our sons' early development. it was easy to go back to work knowing my children were in her very capable hands.

"Cynthia Peralta has been looking after our daughter for over 1 year now - beginning in September 2014. Cynthia is a dedicated, nurturing and enthusiastic caregiver. She orchestrates daily routines and activities with the children, and is creative in her ideas for play and crafts. She demonstrates knowledge of developmental stages and cares for the children accordingly. She focuses on positive behavior and is excited to share stories of new learning's or funny moments in the day. We have been exceptionally lucky to have Cynthia care for our daughter. We have utmost trust in her and we know that the children she cares for are safe and happy under her care."

Danelle and Mike Plettell

"I was extremely fortunate to have Cynthia Look after my son from October 2011 through February 2014. During this time Cynthia exemplified amazing character traits which included respect for our family values in doing her very best to ensure that our son was receiving the same message at home, as he did when he was in her home, daily. Our expectations were mirrored in her care, and that was an element that we very much appreciated in our time working with Cynthia. Cynthia is a great person, and someone I would not think twice about having on any team of mine."

Kerrie-Lee Scott

"We can not say enough for the care provided by Cynthia. She has easily taken away any worry about leaving our daughter and replaced it with an environment that is safe, nurturing, and educational. The open communication, continuous updates, accommodating atmosphere, and level of care provided exceeded all our expectations. We have been blessed to have our timid daughter under her excellent care while seeing her excel and grow. We truly will miss her as we venture onwards.
Thank you for all your wonderful care and support to our family"

The Boudreau Family

"During the five years that Cynthia worked for us at The Dayhome Connection, she consistently demonstrated love and compassion while ensuring academic growth in both English and Spanish, socially acceptable behaviours and boundary setting in a safe and fun environment for the children in her care. Cynthia understands children on an intuitive level and I would highly recommend Cynthia as a dayhome provider. I truly feel that children in her care are so very lucky to interact and experience her loving kindness on a daily basis." ~ Michele Gole, former owner of The Dayhome Connection Inc.

I have had both of my boys in dayhomes since they were 11 months. One is now 6 years old and the other is 2. Some experiences were good, some were challenging. Pingos dayhome program stands out above the others in the sea of dayhome choices that we have to navigate as parents. The program is planned with the utmost care to help children develop mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally. The space is bright and the team truly loves and cares for each child. Having my kids in this program has helped me to raise healthy, happy, and most importantly, kind little humans.

It has been an absolute pleasure to have had our two son’s at the Pingo’s Dayhome over the past two plus years. It was extremely comforting to know that when we dropped our kids off everyday, they were in a place that was not only safe, but one that provided quality home cooked meals, lots of learning and laughs, and a truly caring environment. We were extremely impressed with the commitment that was made on a daily basis to do things like arts and crafts, learning activities like counting and letters, as well as many different games, songs, and themed weeks. In addition to all the indoor fun, efforts were made whenever reasonable to take the kids out for outdoor activities as well.


Speaking about the Program Director, we cannot say enough good things about the care and professionalism that Cynthia operates with. She always did well to provide plenty of advanced notice regarding any time off or changes in schedule, and worked very hard to accommodate our children in one of her other programs in the event that there was a sudden closure at the program our kids were in. All of this while treating the kids in her care almost as if they were her own. She took the time to really care about their development, celebrate their successes, and was always keeping us up to date on how their days were going. It wouldn’t be uncommon for our kids to say they wanted to “go to Cynthia’s” even on weekends just because they missed her. She is fantastic.   


We can truly say that we have nothing but good things to say about our experience at Pingo’s and we would wholeheartedly recommend that anyone entrust Cynthia with the care of their little ones.
