On Tuesday, November 8th, three West Shore RCMP members took on the role of babysitters at a local Langford daycare, after the provider sustained a medical emergency and had to be transported to hospital.
According to the West Shore RCMP, the officers attended the daycare home and provided babysitting services to the four young children.
“Those services included playing with balloons, singing songs, making French fries out of Play-Doh and above all, making sure those children were well-looked after while trying to make contact with parents to come and pick up their children.”
Kirsty Armstrong said her son was one of the toddlers at the daycare and that he had a blast with the officers, “They did an amazing job while we drove to pick him up. Such a positive experience for them. Police made a potentially scary situation for the kids fun!”
The daycare provider was taken to hospital by ambulance as a precaution and the little ones enjoyed the unexpected playdate with the RCMP members.
All parents were notified and attended to pick up their children.
