Our licensed daycare is one of our core programs that supports our rural families. It is licensed under the Ministry of Education and follows the requirements as set out in the Child Care and Early Years Act (CCYEA). The daycare is a valuable service for rural families within our catchment. We believe in enriching experiences that lead to positive outcomes for families, children and staff. Together, we can grow in an environment that sees children as competent, capable, curious and rich in potential.

Our centre is licensed for 24 children. We have two rooms for the different age groupings. One room is our infant and toddler room and the other is our preschool room. The ratio of children to Early Childhood Educator is different for each age group:
0-18 months 3 infants to 1 Early Childhood Educator
18 months – 2 1/2 years 5 toddlers to 1 Early Childhood Educator
2 ½ – 4 years* 8 preschoolers to 1 Early Childhood Educator
The Daycare is open Monday through Friday, from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. We ask that parents arrive by 9 am. We ask that parents come to pick up their children by 5:30 pm.
