Our Philosophy

We believe that each child is a unique human being influenced by the values,customs and behavior of his/her family, peer group, teachers and society. We facilitate a child-based emergent curriculum that believes each child has the prerogative to grow and develop in a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment.

Our History

The Halton Centre for Child Care has operated as a licensed non-profit organization since it was established in 1991. Our Centre is governed by a Board of Directors. Our panel of Board members is comprised of professional, community and parent volunteers. Daily operations are managed by our Executive Director, Cathy McLaughlin who has been with the Centre since 1992. Cathy’s long-term tenure is the foundation to the growth, maturity and success of the Halton Centre for Child Care. It’s proximity to the Bronte Go Station and QEW makes our Centre both convenient and accessible.

The Halton Centre for Child Care has a long time affiliation with Sheridan College. Working with College faculty in the education and growth of Early Childhood Education students the Halton Centre regularly welcomes placement students into our program.

Committed to being the best we can be, the Halton Centre for Child Care is a proud partner in Quality First.

“Centres that are a part of the Quality First initiative in Halton are committed to providing quality care for their children and families” Mary Beth Jonz, Director, Children’s Services, Halton Region.

We build trust and confidence while establishing the necessary foundations for positive self-esteem and lifelong learning.
