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.
The mission of PICCS is to provide high-quality, affordable child care and to offer Family Resource programs and services that foster the emotional, social, cognitive, and physical development of children, and involve and support parents. These programs enhance the lives of children and families and provide a vital community service.
The philosophy of PICCS is that children learn best in a nurturing environment where there is time for both planned and child-directed activities, indoor and outdoor play, and active and quiet times. Children are entitled to be respected as unique individuals, to have their feelings heard and acknowledged, and to be provided with opportunities to develop and be happy together.
Parents benefit from being involved in a meaningful way in their family’s child care experience, and rely on quality care for their children while they are involved in work, educational, or other commitments or personal fulfillment.
PICCS employees and volunteers benefit from a working environment that values their training, skills, and commitment to child care. PICCS demonstrates this respect in communications and policies.
