Welcome to Children of the Island Childcare Center!

caring for children 0 to 12 years of age in a bilingual French/English environment.

Hours of operation are from 6:45 am – 5:45 pm, Monday through Friday except statutory holidays and winter break in December.

The goal of our Childcare service is to create a partnership with families in caring for their children. We provide a nurturing and safe environment to help development of the whole child with equal focus on the intellectual, physical, social, and emotional. Cultural and French language development are also vital to our approach throughout the preschool and school years and our qualified and experienced bilingual staff are inspired to launch the children on their journey of bilingualism. Our Centre welcomes French and English speaking families as well as those from other language backgrounds who value our developmental approach to early childhood education and the cognitive, social and cultural benefits of bilingualism.

Our Bilingual Approach

Researchers say the best way to become proficient in a second language is to start young and practice often. Young children learn a second or third language by being surrounded by that language as they engage with their world.

Children come to our centre as individuals with their unique blend of intelligences, personalities, temperaments, talents, interests, and learning styles. Our challenge is to create a learning environment that nurtures and supports all types of learners.
