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


For the month of August, the infants will have some fun with animals found on the farm. We will play in the sandbox with our farm animals and a cardboard box barn. We will also have a fun bubble washing area to bathe our muddy farm animal friends. The infants will delight in our fun rubber ducky pond, with cool blue water, ducks, lily pads and frogs. We will also have fun feeding our hungry horse yummy colourful carrots and apples. Using sticky notes, we will play peek-a-boo where are you. The infants will play farm animal rescue from the mushy and muddy pit. The infants will also have a lot of fun looking at farm animal pictures, naming the animals as well as mimicking their sounds and actions.


Welcome back everyone! We will be doing individual activities. I have set up the room so that we can practice social distancing. There are different stations each child can play at. I will set up an art table as well with each child’s own materials to work with. We will spend a lot of time outdoors since the weather will be nice. Please send in sunscreen as well as bug spray labeled for your child. Looking forward to seeing you all once again!


For the month of August, we will be spending most of our days outside enjoying the nice weather. We will get creative with objects we find in our yard and on our walks. Using items such as sticks, leaves, grass, flowers and more as part of our art or as tools to create masterpieces. Outside we will also enjoy colour scavenger hunts and ice block I spy! During our morning meetings we will be focusing on telling stories and listening. As we will be spending lots of time in the yard getting our hands dirty please be sure that your children have spare clothing!

School Age

For the month of August, the school age group will be celebrating summer days! This month we will have tons of fun with classic summer activities. Our days will be spent with a lot of water play to keep us cool while enjoying the hot temperatures with all these sunny days! Some of the water activities will include: splash pad, sprinklers, water balloons, and sponge toss. The school age group will also get hands-on and artsy with designing a race track for their homemade ice boats, building kites, as well as, creating wild art with exploding paint balloons. Our treats this month will be decided by the group and we will enjoy these outside as a picnic!
