Welcome to Lil Bebe Academy – a home daycare that started because of my children. It’s amazing how children inspire you. Mine helped me accept my calling, my passion, my gift, my happiness, my truth, my everything! And that is how Lil Bebe Academy got started.
Meet my kids.
I hail from the tropical island of Jamaica aka ‘The land of wood and water.’ I am a product of Island Vibes, reggae music, outdoor adventures, and good food. I grew up in rural Jamaica, where the clouds hug the mountains and the pleasant melody of birds permeate the air…Bob Marley knew those three little birds well.
My nature loving soul is the result of my upbringing. I would often be outside playing games with siblings, my school mates or neighbors until the wee hours of the night. Games like jump rope, gig, marble, cricket, jax and dandy shandy..aka dodge ball was our thing. Back then life was not about gadgets or television. Television was a choice of only two channels not hundreds and it would sign off which meant no more broadcasting on either channel. Yep…believe that all right.
Those days, I did not have readymade toys, my siblings and I had to be creative. We built our toys from plastic bags, wood, cardboard boxes, old tires, leaves, dirt, bushes, tree stubs, you name it ….we would make something with it. Creativity flowed through me.
Fast forward many years and I am giving that creative gift to my children and those that I care for. I pass the torch on so these children can love the outdoors, explore, discover and make memories like I did.
My creative passion and love of teaching inspires this blog – I love a lot of things, one day I am into this and tomorrow I am into that. I appreciate and love all kinds of music, documentaries, people, and food. I love to read books on design, I know how to sew and got that from my mother who was a seamstress. My design sense evolved while attending college and living in New York City. One of my passion is to find old things and make them new again – diamonds in the rough, I have an eye for beauty even when its ugly. My all-time favorite thing to do is traveling, I wish I could spend a lot of time away with my family immersed in another language and culture.
Welcome to Lil Bebe Academy, here you will find arts and crafts, science activities, some food, my hobbies, family values, raising our children, and fun.
My wish for every parent or caregiver is, to give your child the gift of outdoor adventures. Welcome their imaginary friends, believe in their dreams and most of all spend quality time with them. And please allow them to have fun while creating.
