Philosophy

The South End Day Care Centre believes in the dignity and uniqueness of each child. Each child is treated equally regardless of abilities. We offer a rich learning environment so that children can thrive on developing their social, intellectual, emotional and physical growth. We encourage independence, self-confidence and consideration for others. We also believe that well-balanced meals and snacks play an important role in the growth and development of our children.

Community Awareness

The children at the centre learn about their community and ways they can help make a difference. The children participate in marigolds on main, collect food for the food basket, collect loose change for the Empty Stocking Fund and we visit with the seniors at the Turnbull Home. We believe you are never too young to learn about your community.
