View of the Child: Children are competent, capable of complex thinking, curious, and rich in potential.

Quality Childcare is Important to Every Family.

We provide a safe, caring and nurturing environment for toddler, pre-school, junior and senior kindergarten, and school aged children. All programs are professionally led by Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECE’s), and our facility is licensed annually by the Ministry of Education.

Fee subsidies are available from the County of Wellington for those who qualify. For more information please check out their web page.

Monthly receipts are provided for income tax purposes. Annual tax receipts are available upon request.

How to Register

An over-the-phone family questionnaire is the first step. Once a space has been confirmed in our program for your child, we require a full registration package to be completed by the family and will arrange for a tour of our child care centre.

For more information about our Childcare Programs or to register, please call 519-843-6632 or email: childcare@communityresourcecentre.org

Waiting Lists

On occasion when space is not immediately available, a wait list is in place for families. The following factors are used when drawing children from the waiting list.

  • Full time permanent request for current clients
  • Full time permanent requests for new clients
  • Part time permanent requests for current clients (before and after school programs only)
  • Part time requests for new clients (before and after school programs only)
  • Age of the child and duration of care needed

Parents are welcome to call the childcare centre and speak to the Supervisor to discuss their standing on the wait list.

Note: We will advise you when you are at the top of the waiting list for your choice of child care so that you can begin to make preparations or advise us that you no longer require child care.

Ask us about child development
