Description of Program

Choosing a childcare centre that meets the unique needs of your child and your family is a tremendous responsibility. It is important that you agree with the philosophies and policies, as defined in our centre family handbook, as these are the principles on which the program and interactions with your child and family will be based.

It is also very important that you are comfortable with the environment and educators who will be responsible for your child’s well-being, security and early childhood learning during his/her attendance at the centre. Take the time necessary to get to know the educators and/or the director.

Every childcare center licensed through Dept. of Social Development services N.B. has access to a wealth of information regarding many different programs such as, Daycare Assistance Program, Keep Kids Safe, Car Time 1234, Public Health, Talk with Me program, NB public libraries, Dairy Farmers of N.B. etc. Please remember to speak with the Center Director for more information regarding areas of interest for your family.

Ask questions about the centre and areas of the program that are important to you and your family. It is well worth the time and effort required to find and secure a space in a centre where your child will be safe, secure and happy for his/her early childhood years. Although some children adjust very well to change, frequent changes in a child’s routine and child care placement can be very disruptive and detrimental to their development of trusting, long-lasting relationships.

All NB Childcare licensed centers follow the new Canada food guide.
