Infant Child Care Program

Our Infant child care 0-18 month program is designed to provide your little one with a safe and nurturing environment. Our team of Registered Early Childhood Educators will ensure that your child receives the best care possible. Through daily sensory and creative experiences, your child will develop their social, emotional, cognitive, and motor skills at their own pace. We understand that every infant is unique, which is why we offer a flexible schedule to meet the individual needs of each child.

Toddler Child Care Program

The Toddler program is designed for children between 18 months and 2 1/2 years old who are eager to explore and learn. Our program offers a variety of sensory and creative activities every day, as well as opportunities for free play and choice. Through these experiences, your child will develop important skills such as communication, socialization, self-help, and physical development. Plus, they’ll have fun playing and making friends along the way!

Preschool Child Care Program

For children aged 2 1/2 to 5 years old, our preschool program offers a range of activities and experiences designed to prepare them for their academic journey. Alongside the fun and engaging activities that toddlers enjoy, our preschoolers will also work on developing important school-readiness skills. Our program is designed to encourage socialization, build confidence, and promote self-esteem, helping your child to thrive both academically and emotionally.
