The Centre provides a play-based enriching program for children ages 18 months to 12 years in inclusive family-focused facilities. Because we’re tucked into the foothills of the Nor’Wester mountains, both staff and children get to appreciate our peaceful, beautiful surroundings every day. Our inspiring environment, both inside and out, gives children the opportunity to develop physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually to their fullest potential. We are a peanut and tree nut safe site.
