Parkway Day Care Centre has been serving the community for over 30 years.
Parkway adheres to a holistic approach of early childhood education. When we expose children to different environments and various learning experiences, we allow them to explore their self-awareness and gain a sense of the world around them. Once they leave our Child Care Centre, they’re fully prepared for the next stage of their young lives.
Parkway Day Care Centre's program is designed to support many areas to meet all developmental areas for each individual child's needs. We support a rich variety of experiences throughout the day. These areas will foster the children's exploration, play and inquiry.
Our staff are qualified Registered Early Childhood Educators and Parkway Day Care promotes training and development to ensure that all educators are trained in the most current research.
Nutrition: our menus are based on Canada's Food Guide to promote healthy eating. Our cook attends courses to further her knowledge and holds a current Food Handlers Certificate. We offer a morning and afternoon snack, along with a hot lunch. We accommodate the children's dietary needs to the best of our ability.
COME WORK WITH US
At Parkway Day Care Centre our first and for most objective is to provide quality care for children, complementing the care that family members provide. In providing such care staff members promote the development of the whole child. Recognizing each child’s individual needs and encouraging children’s abilities to try new things and explore new ideas, will develop their own unique creativities.
