Born and raised in the Philippines, Paulyn has called Kelowna home for the last 14 years. She completed her post secondary education at what was then the Okanagan University College, obtaining her Bachelor’s Degree in Business, and was awarded the Governor General’s Silver Academic Medal. She further pursued her education and attained her Chartered Accountant designation in January of 2006.
Growing up with parents who are both business people, she has always had this innate passion for owning and running her own business. She has helped set up several businesses for other people, and played a critical role in putting together one of Kelowna’s most prominent real estate development. Being away from her daughter, Emma, to go back to her full time accounting job was challenging. So when the opportunity presented itself with owning and operating the daycare, Paulyn jumped on it. This provides the balance she is seeking of spending time with her daughter as well as still being able to run a business.
Now being a mom herself, she understands the concerns of parents when they leave their children under the care of other people. She believes in putting children’s health and safety as the highest priority, and at the same time, letting children learn through play. Paulyn currently does not have her Early Childhood Education certification, but she believes that if she just listens to her instincts as a mom that she will always make the right decision for the care of the children.
