          Children of the Island is proud to announce we are building a new purpose-built and designed child care Centre in Langford. This new state of the art centre will welcome 200 children between the ages of 6 months to 5 years. Located within the South Point development adjacent to the new North Langford Elementary School project. Our new site is surrounded by beautiful forested areas and trails with picturesque views of the Juan de Fuca straight and Olympic Mountains. Project completion is estimated to be January/February 2022 at which time we will be closing our current location in Colwood.

          Every section of this centre has been methodically thought out and planned to engage children in a learn through play nature inspired environment. The centre includes a full size indoor/outdoor

gymnasium with rock climbing wall, large fully equipped licensed kitchen, infirmary, and elevator providing full accessibility. Each classroom decor will be inspired by our beautiful island landscapes with large panoramic widows allowing for lots of natural light. All our indoor and outdoor spaces will promote learning and growth in a safe and engaging environment.

          This new centre will allow us to provide 12 new and much needed Infant toddler spaces for our Westshore community families. We will have 4 classrooms of 12 infant/toddlers for a total of 48 spots making us one of the largest infant toddler providers on the South Island. Our facility also includes 6 classrooms of 25 children aged 30 months to 5 yrs. old.

          We look forward to welcoming our current families and future families to our new location. Please stay tuned for more detailed information, pictures and updates during construction.

Caring for children from birth to 5 years of age in a bilingual English/French environment.

Hours of operation are from 7:00 am – 5:00 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 the development of the whole child, with an equal focus on emotional, social, physical, intellectual and basic French language development throughout the preschool years. Our qualified and experienced staff members are inspired to launch the children on their journey of learning in a bilingual environment. 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 learning a second language.

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 with that language as they engage in their world. The benefits of being bilingual, such as greater cognitive flexibility, have been well documented.
