Leslie Dendys:  Director/Owner

 Hello, my name is Leslie Dendys. I delight in children. They always lighten the day and bring   sunshine to my life!  I greatly appreciate the many relationships I’ve enjoyed over the years, with staff members, parents and children in our care.

I have spent forty rewarding years working with children.  I raised five of my own, taught school for ten years and have owned and operated the Fun Farm for the past sixteen years.

I strongly believe in the benefits of outdoor activity for children.  I love hiking, kayaking, beachcombing, and just being outside!  I do my best to provide a myriad of healthy outdoor activities in our programming, and in the the ongoing physical development of our acreage.

We seek to foster happiness, health and a love of nature in our children at the Fun Farm!

I love to create art and to paint. I really enjoy cooking and baking, whether at home or with children in the daycare. I enjoy swimming, as well as curriculum planning and activity planning. I love working with kids because they always make me laugh. I enjoy watching children’s excitement around learning new things, and experiencing new adventures.
