Since 1998, Dragonfly has been a licensed child care facility that provides a Pre-Kindergarten program for 4 year olds and 5 years olds on Tuesdays 9-3:30 and a multi-age program for children 18 months to 5 year olds Wednesday through Friday 9-4:45. We offer both full-day and half-day sessions. Dragonfly has opted into the government initiated Parent Reduction Program and can assist parents/caregivers with the Affordable Child Care Benefit forms.
Educated staff members work together to provide a gentle, nurturing environment with developmentally appropriate play that fosters self-esteem and respect. The majority of the day is spent outside where children have the opportunity to be play, observe and grow connected to the world around them. Our Early Childhood Educators focus less on what they want to teach and more on the child's emerging interests. Daily walks in the forest allow children to feel intimately connected to nature and their sense of place.
Our Centre also has a varied collection of safe, colourful, and educational toys and games, musical instruments, a quiet room with library and dress-up box, arts & craft supplies, toy kitchens, a fenced outdoor garden with gazebo, playhouse, mud kitchen, sand box and herb/flower bed. Come in and visit our Centre, meet our staff, and gather more info on a child care session best suited for your child.
