Family Day Care

Our Philosophy

We believe that children and families are central to everything we do. We believe in understanding and responding to the needs of our community. We believe in collaboration, support for each other and mutual respect.

Family-Centred Child Care

Family Day recognizes the importance of the family and the community in child development. As a family-centred child care organization, we work to strengthen the relationships among children, families and communities. Family Day understands that culture, diversity, community and public policy affect child and family development. We support our families, and recognize and respect parents as being the most important caregivers for children. Parents and staff are partners in caring for children.
