Please note this is a general schedule – as we know the children dictate the routine for the day- each child’s routine will be followed to the best of our ability.

Parent involvement is the program is mandatory. This is an important aspect of care because it helps to link the child’s home and family with the daycare centre. We understand that parents are the primary caregivers in their child’s life and we try to work as a team to provide the best care possible for the child and their family.

Mothers and Fathers are always welcome at the centre upon approval by the school principal and teachers. The staff encourages parents to become involved in the daily routine of their child by dropping in to have lunch with your child at lunchtime, spending a few extra minutes of play or story time at drop-off or taking part in field trips or special events. Parents will also participate in activities including career planning, educational planning, life skills and parenting skills

You are welcome to contact us if you have any suggestions or would like to become involved in a special project.
