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.

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.
