Community Children's Centre



The Community Children's Centre (the Centre) is a licensed group daycare offering care for children aged 30 months to school aged.


Our mission is to offer the best early learning environment we are capable of providing by focusing on the areas of early learning that are based on the vision and principles of the revised Early Learning Framework.


Our Philosophy


The Early Learning Framework Principles set forth ways of thinking about childhood, learning, and practicing that underpin the vision of respectfully living and learning together. The principles are:

  • Children are strong, capable in their uniqueness, and full of potential. 
  • Families have the most important role in contributing to children’s well-being and learning.
  • Educators are researchers and collaborators.
  • Early years spaces are inclusive.
  • People build connection and reconnection to land, culture, community and place.
  • Environments are integral to well-being and learning.
  • Play is integral to well-being and learning.
  • Relationships are the context for well-being and learning. 
  • Learning is holistic.
