We currently offer 2 half-day sites for our Early Learning and Parenting programs. This is a preschool program that helps prepare children to enter school and provides support to parents in building their parenting skills and caring for their children.
In addition to the regular Early Learning and Parenting programs, two full day care programs are offered at the Western Hill and Central ELPP (7:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.) centres.
We offer developmental screening to ensure children have reached appropriate milestones and assist with referrals to other community services where needed, such as speech and language services or services for children with special needs.
We also help families locate counselling services, housing centres, women's shelters or other helping community agencies.
Children will enjoy age appropriate creative activities, music and movement, science and discovery, stories and many other educational and enjoyable activities that will assist in their healthy development.
We serve between 250 to 300 children each year. We accept children as young as 18 to 24 months and offer transportation, subsidies and parent groups. Call the location in your area to register your child.
