Talia Erickson is the owner and Storybook centre manager at Vancouver’s flexible daycare. This Feb., she’s celebrating 10 years at the helm, ever since incorporating in 2011. She holds a Combined Honours degree in Psychology and Journalism from the Universities of King’s College and Dalhousie in Halifax, and took her Daycare Basics at the Westcoast Childcare Resource.
Her appreciation for clear communication, (“use your words”), polite manners, appreciation, and environmental awareness can be found throughout this website, in our newsletters, as well as at the centre. To make it official, this year, she’s pursing B Corp certification and registering Buddings as a BC Benefit Company.
That also means she’s been advocating for a more flexible licensed childcare program for almost a decade, and 2021 may be the year it all comes together. Stay in touch! Subscribe to our newsletter. 😉
Families count on her for transparency and a continuing desire to improve, and kids get consistent guidance towards global responsibility. She is a small business mentor, an environmental vegetarian, and plant and animal… collector? She also likes space. 🚀
