Washroom areas and procedures will be shown to your child (when age appropriate) Feel free to call during the day to see how your child is settling in.

Our menu is well-balanced and takes into account the recommendations of the Canada Food Guide and the preferences of families and children.

We use mealtime to help children develop a positive attitude towards food and develop good mealtime habits.

Q: What Should I Pack in My Child’s Bag?

A: Before your start date, you will be emailed a list detailing exactly what you need to pack, depending on your child’s age.

Q: What Happens if My Child Becomes Ill While in Your Care?

A: If your child becomes unwell, we will contact you and let you know. If we feel they are not well enough to stay at the centre, we will ask you to come pick up your child. We are committed to providing and maintaining a healthy environment.

Q: Do I Have To Pay for My Child’s Spot When We Are Away?

A: Yes, you are required to pay for your child’s space when they are away. When you register at the centre, that space is reserved for your child. If your child is away, that space will still be reserved for them.
