HI, we are Melanie and Christa, co-owners of Pat-A-Cake Playhouse. It is a licensed, home-based, family-oriented daycare. We are geared towards children between the ages of 3 months to 6 years.

Melanie is a certified Early Childhood Educator and a mother of 6. She has 5 years’ experience facilitating a home-based daycare.  

Christa is completing her course to become an Early Childhood Assistant and is a mother of 5. She has 10 years’ experience in the education field through homeschooling and Barton Reading and Writing Tutor; and served as head couch and then district coordinator for CMQ youth program for 8 years.  


At Pat-A-Cake Playhouse it’s our goal to give children a safe place to learn and grow. We cater to a variety of parental lifestyles with our premium programming. Work keeps you busy? Our rich program keeps kids engaged and cared for all day. You have a desire to be there, even when you can’t? We offer technology that keeps you involved with your child quickly and at your convenience.


It is our style of programming that makes us stand apart from other daycare centres. Our program is a combination of theme-based play and emergent play. This allows the children to expand their interests, develop their individual strengths, and experience different learning styles. We also provide well balanced breakfast, lunch and 2 snacks throughout the day.
