Daycare

Do you want a little more from daycare? Open young minds and imagination with our daycare program!  Designed for children aged 30 months to 5 years, we’ll play through art, games, music, math, science, drama and more.  Our program is semi-structured, helping children feel secure with regular routines, but offering lots of time for free play.

Early Childhood Educators guide children in developing language, social play, self-help skills and a respect and acceptance of others.  A nurturing, safe, and yet challenging environment at “the Patch” allows your child to encounter positive relationships with teachers and other children.

Children must bring all snacks/breakfast/lunch, indoor shoes, and a change of clothing (playing can sometimes be messy)!  We also go outside to play, so please come dressed for the weather.  Our daily schedule includes: Circle time (theme for the day/week, songs and stories to share, math and science activities), crafts and art projects, snack time, outside play and quiet time (stories and naptime).  Our daycare centre is open from 7:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.  Fees are to be paid on the 1st of each month, 3 months of post-dated cheques in advance.  A $ 20 fee will be charged for NSF cheques.  No credit will be given for absences of any kind, except if a child is sick for more than five days and a doctor’s note is provided.

Our North Otter Elementary location will offer care to children 30 months to 5 years during School hours on School days.  This location will NOT have daycare available on Pro-D Days or Christmas and Spring Break.  This program will be semi-structured with all the variety of activities as listed above, with lots of time for your child to explore, learn and have fun.
