Childminding and Daycare

The Childminding facility is overseen by the Citizenship and Immigration Canada sponsored Childminding, Monitoring, Advisory and Support (CMAS) Program. The Association has numerous resources available for children entering the childminding center, including the “More Than Series,” a child-centered integrated curriculum for five important areas of early learning: math, art, music, science, and reading and writing. All of these resources and materials help to enrich the childcare environment and promote early learning in inclusive classrooms.

International Friends Daycare
International Friends Daycare is overseen by Eastern Health’s Childcare services. All childcare staff have First Aid/CPR training and relevant vaccinations, and most are trained in Early Childhood Education. Program plans are developed weekly and are posted in the Centre. Programs are based on a theme or topic that the children have shown in interest in. Efforts are also made to assist parents by providing seminars on key topics with guest presenters and community experts (for example: nutrition, parenting skills, and healthy eating). These seminars are extremely valuable and help prepare parents and children for the North American school system and environment.
