Our Staff Team

Our staff of Early childhood educators and other experienced child care professionals maintain an ongoing program plan to foster physical, social, intellectual and emotional growth. Creative independence, self-help skills and community awareness are also considered when planning monthly programming.

Parents are encouraged to talk with the staff about anything related to their child. Parent interviews are by request. This will provide an opportunity for both parents and staff to further discuss your child’s progress and observed needs.

Menu and Nutrition

We offer a well-balanced menu, which follows the Canada’s Food Guide. Our menu is trans fat free. With more whole grains and less salt we offer the healthiest and tastiest foods possible.

Children receive a hot nutritious lunch and two snacks daily. Weekly menus are posted.

An independent catering company provides the hot lunch, and our staff prepare morning/afternoon snacks.

Please be aware, we are a nut-free facility. If you would like to bring treats in for birthdays and other celebrations, please ensure products are clearly marked "Nut Free".

All allergies must be in the children's file. All Allergy or food information will be posted in each room and in the kitchen. Parents must notify staff of any/all changes.
