A Little Bit About Our Philosophy...

  • Children are entitled to a safe and secure environment that fosters their physical, intellectual, creative, emotional and social development.  There are several approaches to a child's development. The BCCS philosophy is "Learning through Play"

  • Parents are entitled to meaningful involvement in their child's care

  • Our approach is to discipline through redirection and setting limits in a positive manner

What to Expect...

  • Each family is required to participate in gradual entry with the child when a spot has been accepted.  This means a parent will come with the child to attend the program starting with a short visit and over a few visits, gradually increase the length of time of each visit while the amount of parent participation decreases. This is an important time for your child, as it allows for them to feel comfortable in the program while feeling safe and nurtured by our well-qualified staff.

  • In the under three programs, a daily communication sheet is used and shared with families. This daily sheet records each child's eating, sleeping and toileting for the day and the parent may bring it home with them at the end of each day.

  • There is a nap room for the children and a crib is available for each child.

  • A daily communication board is posted within the programs, to share what your child experiences involved that day.  It will tell you  the various activities such as sensory, science, socials, creative art and any other exciting adventures that happened that day.

  • In this program, we require all parents to supply a lunch for your child each day.  Morning and afternoon snacks are provided by the centre.

  • The daycare does not supply food to our infants due to allergies.

  • Diapers and wipes must be provided by the parents.  For reduced environmental impact and for the child's comfort, we use cotton cloths for diapering most of the day, rather than disposable wipes.  These cloths are supplied by BCCS and cleaned daily.
