Parents, staff and students involved at the Centre


We truly believe in establishing supportive, responsive partnerships with families. Families are welcome to be volunteers, resource persons, serve on the Board and active participants in work parties/meetings.

Our childcare staff are certified, licensed Early Childhood Educators and in some cases, specializing in Special Needs. The staff are required to have current, validated BC License to Practice and a valid Child Safe First Aid Certification.

Practicum students will be accepted into the centre based upon the needs and best interest of children enrolled in the program and the discretion of the Program Supervisor and General Manager.
