Years of Experience
At this stage children have developed an awareness of others. They are learning how to successfully interact with one another as they develop their social and cognitive skills. It is a wonderful time as children begin to make connections and explore their environments in a more purposeful way. We offer a full day program for toddlers focusing on both physical and emotional growth. A wide variety of planned indoor & outdoor activities are included each day.
Toddlers will be fed lunch and two snacks a day in small groups at low tables with appropriate toddler chairs. A nap or rest period will be provided for approximately two hours every day. We also provide a toilet training routine and a daily charting system to assist parents.
Before & After School
Our B/A Kindergarten Program (FDK) is staffed and operated by Centre for E.C.E to support the needs of parents attending The Elms Jr./Middle School. The program operates in the School's Kindergarten classroom and is licensed for 26 children. The program operates during the school year from 7:30am to the start of the school day, and the end of the school day to 6:00pm. The extended day program includes both morning and afternoon care (there is no other option). Morning & afternoon snacks are provided as well as a hot lunch when children attend full day during PD days and winter & march breaks. The daycare staff and kindergarten teachers work in close partnership to implement a program based both on children interests and that meet curriculum expectations.
The Pre-School Program is a full day program operating from 7:30am to 6:00pm. The program is licensed for 32 children ranging in age from 2.5 to 4 years. The teacher ratio for this program is 1 to 8.

Children are encouraged to bring a special blanket or special toy for rest time. The Centre will provide a fitted sheet and a child's cot. We strive to provide children with positive experiences to help them become independent. Activities include social skills, problem solving and discussion around the weekly theme.
