About Us

Chathurika Tennakoon RECE


I have over 17 years of proven progressive experience with children with excellent knowledge and understanding of both the Early Child Care and Montessori Method of Teaching. I am extremely thorough with the handling of distinct children from diverse backgrounds in different geographies and the ability to form trusting partnerships with children is something that I excelled in, in my professional career.


I hold Diplomas for Early Childhood Education and Montessori Method of Education and was nominated to Dean’s list in Loyalist College for academic excellence in my ECE. I am a registered member of the College of Early Childhood Educators. I also possess additional training for teaching methods for all age groups.


Our team in Tiny-Shiny Childcare is well experienced and is highly qualified professionals to care for your children. I can personally guarantee that your child is in the best hand possible in the industry.


I am greatly proud and thankful that you trust us with your children.

Our Philosophy

Tiny-Shiny Childcare has a strong commitment to provide a progressive and consistently high quality childcare service where the needs of both the children and the families are met.  As dedicated Early Childhood Professionals, we believe that children are unique individuals who learn and develop skills through the process of exploration within and educational, play-based curriculum. We think each child can become independent in areas of self-help skills, decision-making and socialization.  Through a variety of areas in play, Tiny-Shiny Childcare believes that each child can learn to develop their language and communication skills while having fun.
