These kiddos are enjoying their time together. They love the variety of activities and are excited about coming every day. The teachers enjoy their time with the children and are happy to see how much they have already developed in such a short period of time.

Today Kids Play Daycare welcomed the first 3 kiddos. They were so enthusiastic about attending "big school" and enjoyed all the activities. We thank God for sending these toddlers our way.

In 2009, we decided that it was time to extend the daycare or ECD. We selected the name, "Kids Play Christian Academy." At the time, the daycare accommodated babies from 3 months to five years old children while the academy only accommodated grade RR and Grade R students. The photo includes the actual sign that was made for the academy. In 2020, after much debate and prayer, we changed the name to London Village Christian Academy. We are waiting on the new sign for the academy and can't wait to see it fixed on the front of the academy building.

We thank God for sending all the children and/or students. We pray that God will allow us to be an encouragement to the students and that our example with motivate them to become His children too.

An outdoor area that changes daily or weekly to allow the children to develop various skills and use the space efficiently.

Kids Play Daycare video displaying one kind of setting for an outdoor area for the preschoolers.

The video shows one way of setting up the outdoor area for preschoolers. It changes either daily or weekly. The area can be set up as a water and sand play area. It can be set up for a trampoline or a collapsible jungle-gym. Sometimes it is a challenge to explain to parents that the area changes to allow for various activities and for the developing the children's skills. I hope you enjoy the video.

Our Story

Our History:

Kids Play Daycare was established on the 15th January 2007 but was born long before its founding date. In 1997, my mother, Merlyn Georgina Sedres (Teacher Merle), started a day care from our house. She named it Buckingham Educare. She successfully operated the educare at 7 Buckingham Way, London Village, Weltevreden Valley. With the support from my father, she operated the Buckingham Educare as a warm and loving home to many kids. It only started with 2 children. Not only did the children feel at home but the parents and grandparents were satisfied knowing this while they were at their various jobs. The Buckingham Educare became well known to the community in and around the Mitchell’s Plain area.

In 2003, our family experienced a traumatic time when my eldest brother passed away. My mother continued to operate the educare until 2006. It was the 9th year since she started the educare. She spearheaded the educare and maintained a loving atmosphere for 9 years.

During that time I observed, learned and accumulated so much knowledge about the operation of the educare. I had no idea that it would give birth to Kids Play Daycare in 2007. The Buckingham Educare provided the foundation for Kids Play Daycare. My mother donated most of the equipment and resources to KPDC. This was a huge blessing and contribution to KPDC’s establishment.
