Since 1998, Dragonfly has been a licensed child care facility that provides dedicated child-minding and pre-kindergarten programs for children 18 mo to 5 yrs, Tuesday through Friday. Children attend with similarly-aged children and activities are thus age appropriate. We offer both full-day and half-day sessions. Dragonfly has opted into the government initiated Parent Reduction Program and can assist with the forms for the Affordable Child Care Benefit.
Trained staff members work together to provide a gentle, nurturing environment that fosters self-esteem and respect. The focus of the program is learning through stimulating and creative play – music, arts & crafts, dress-up, puppet shows and games all become the vehicles for emergent math, literacy, and writing skills. Science experiments become works of wonder. Physical activity is ongoing both indoors and outdoors.
Our Centre 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, and a fenced outdoor garden with gazebo, playhouse, 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.
