"Learning is their journey. Let them navigate. Push them to explore. Watch them discover. Encourage their questions. Allow them to struggle. Support their thinking. LET THEM FLY!"
- a teacher's mantra to their children
Sonja Moore, Group daycare Manager
My name is Shalinder Bains. I am an ECE teacher, a Health Care Aide, and the new owner of Playland Daycare Center. I currently own 2 daycares: Little Cabineers Child Care and Playland Daycare Center.
I have completed my Early Childhood Education Assistant Program from Vancouver Community College in December 2017 and my Early Childhood Education Program from Vancouver Community College in February 2019.
I opened my first daycare of 8 children in Surrey, in August 2019, which I recently closed in February 2021. I also bought a daycare of 28 children in Vernon, in October 2020. Aside from that I have a part time job in a hospital as a Health Care Aide.
I look forward to meeting everyone and I can’t wait to spend time growing and working with you.
Thank you to all the staff, parents, and children of Playland Daycare Center for giving me this opportunity to grow in such an incredible and friendly environment.

Sonja is our group daycare manager. She works as an ECE, has her first aid, and also food safe. She is also a full-time mom of two teen boys who have helped her grow patience and understanding.
As an educator, Sonja believes each child is born with curiosity, an eagerness to learn, question and create, and push the limits of their world to find themselves. She plans to support the Playland Daycare children by providing a safe, loving, and supportive environment that has everyday adventures, imaginative circle times, books, fun activities, structure and play.
She believes children should be given choices, responsibilities, and opportunities to launch their own learning in an environment that invites them to be themselves.
