On April 10, we hosted a visit with Don Giesbrecht, CEO of the Canadian Child Care Federation. It was my pleasure to take Don to visit three of our child care programs. In Markham, we visited the Armadale Child Care Centre and the Hagerman House Early Learning and Family Centre/Markham Ontario Early Years Centre. The tour wrapped up with a visit to the Mary Ward Child Care Centre in Toronto.
During our visit to the Armadale program, we met with Principal Jay Wolkoff and Vice-Principal Fawzia Durrani of Armadale Public School, who both spoke about the importance of partnerships between schools and child care. In particular, they highlighted the strong relationship at work between Family Day’s Armadale child care program and their school.
