We are back in business!

As of July 27th, we have re-opened our doors. Now that we have moved into Stage 3 of the Province’s reopening plan, we are able to accommodate more families however there are certain limitations to how many children we can accept. There are also guidelines and procedures we must follow to ensure everyone’s safety, including our screening stations located at the entrances of each site. Please bear with us as we navigate these changes in this challenging time. We look forward to seeing you all soon!

English Day Care Program

French Day Care Program


During the month of September, the infants will be amazed by all of the bright and cheerful colours of Fall. We will have a sensory bin filled with the beautiful colours of Fall. The infants will have a great time finger painting leaves. We will enjoy playing and creating with our Fall scented play doh. The infants will have fun placing Fall shapes on sticky paper, removing and repeat. We will also do some Fall painting in our sensory baggies. The infants will dig into brightly coloured moon sand to find pine cones and leaves. We will also have some fun singing and doing actions to, Rain Drop Rain Drop, Leaves are falling, 5 little leaves and Ten red apples.


I have noticed that the children really enjoy sensory play so for the month of September we will do individual sensory activities such as water play, mud kitchen, playdough as well as slime. We will be spending alot of time outdoors since it’s easier to physical distance. Please make sure to dress your children according to the weather!


For the month of September, we will be spending most of our time outside, as it is easier to physical distance. While outside in the yard the children will be given opportunity to investigate the insects around and the fallen leaves. Also, we will be reading the book “Autumn” by Joseph M. Parramon and will look for the signs of fall talked about. On our walks we will collect items for our art projects and will take in the many beautiful colours! In the room we will continue our morning meetings and will enjoy activities such as; making slime, building roads and exploring many different sensory bins!

School Age

For the month of September, the SAC program will be celebrating “Fall-ing” into a new routine! With the changing season, comes changing ways and we will all work together to make daycare a fun, friend-zone! We will have tons of fun sharing our favourite memories from spring and summer while making cards and drawing pictures to share with the group and to decorate our bulletin board. We will be learning many social distancing games such as: “What Time is it Mr. Wolf?”, Rhythm Master, and The Captain’s Coming; to keep us safely playing altogether! We will also use our outdoor play area for flying homemade kites. The SAC group will use many different craft materials such as paint, glitter, string, and brightly coloured paper to create unique kites for all to see in the sky! This month’s treat will be something very delicious that we can make individually while enjoying as a group; Apple Pie in a Cup!
