ISOLATION

BURNOUT

FATIGUE

As a private dayhome provider myself, I know how difficult this job can truly be.

Danielle Bourdin
Founder

And I also know that resources and support can make a world of difference to a dayhome provider. 

But finding resources and support that are geared towards private childcare is virtually impossible. 

So 2 years ago I set out to create a community for private providers to access all the support and resources that I so desperately longed for in my business. 

A place for providers to network with each other, learn new skills, access business tools, and finally feel seen and heard within the dayhome community in Alberta.  

I created Embolden VIP

Embolden VIP is Alberta’s very first membership community designed exclusively for private dayhome providers. 

OFFERING AUTONOMY AND SUPPORT 

Embolden VIP is a place for you to gain the resources and support you need to offer exceptional quality childcare in your community. 

With access to meal plans, activity plans, fitness plans, spirituality and self care resources, business printables, courses, tutorials, workshops, professional development series, and so much more.

 

EMBOLDEN VIP WILL HELP YOU TO:

Build a business you love, that generates reliable income, and gives you the freedom and lifestyle that you desire

Attract more families, and secure more contracts, so that you can enjoy stability and predictability in your business 

Eliminate the stress of planning activities and meals so that you can focus more on the families and children in your care 

Prevent burnout and isolation so that you can have longevity and joy in your dayhome business 

Get connected to other dayhome providers in your community, helping you to find your dayhome tribe

Make a difference in the lives of the children in your community by providing quality childcare to all

Meet the face behind Embolden VIP

Danielle Bourdin

Hey there fellow provider! My name is Danielle, and my desire to empower private dayhome providers in my community has led me to create the Embolden Private Dayhome Community. Knowing how overwhelming it can be to start and run a dayhome business motivates me to provide resources and support to fellow dayhome providers in my world. 

As the owner of a successful private dayhome business in my community, I have a lot to offer in terms of experience, guidance, and expertise within the private dayhome industry. As an educated provider, I am passionate about ensuring that all children in Alberta have access to quality childcare no matter the circumstances in which they receive that care. 

My hope and dream is for Embolden VIP to one day become the gold standard in private childcare. Partnering with Embolden VIP means you are passionate about your career, and are willing to grow and evolve as a private childcare provider. It is with this dedication to our industry that we will destigmatize the private dayhome industry from being less than to more than enough.  

When providers are supported, and have access to quality resources, they have the capacity to offer a higher level of care that ultimately benefits the children they are entrusted with. Whether you are a brand new provider, or a provider who has been running their dayhome for 30 years, Embolden VIP is for you. 

There is power in numbers. And Embolden VIP is the place for all private providers to come out from the shadows of the childcare industry and proudly proclaim their worth and value as educators. If 3/4 of childcare in Canada has to be private, Embolden VIP members are going to be the ones who do it right

Embolden VIP is going to change the perception of private childcare in Alberta

BUT DON'T JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT

"Danielle is amazing! The amount of time, energy, resource, love, creativity & wisdom that has been put into Embolden will encourage, equip & empower you incredibly! I highly recommend Embolden as you will be investing in to yourself as a provider, and your profession as an Early Childhood Educator, which in turn invests in to the lives of the kids you influence."
