Childcare Centres

The Children’s Village operates 4 school-age child care programs located in OCDSB Schools. All of our centres offer year round child care and services that focus on supporting working parents. In collaboration with the schools, our child care centres offer children a seamless day and a program that fosters growth and development through play and exploration.


All of our programs use an “Emergent Curriculum” and are staffed by qualified and registered Early Childhood Educators.
