We are honored to be located on the unceded territory of the c̓išaaʔatḥ and Hupačasath Nations. We are committed to participating in revitalization practices through caring for the land on which we are uninvited settlers, ensuring our spaces reflect our community, and building relationships with cultural educators who come in and share valuable experiences with children and staff.
Welcome to Hummingbird Child Care Centre
"Quality Child Care for Children Birth to 5 years Old"
This Child Care Centre was created by the community for you and your child. Our goal is to provide a warm, nurturing environment where parents and staff cooperate to provide the best possible care for young children.
MISSION STATEMENT: To provide quality child care to both young parents continuing their education and parents in our community. We provide a warm, nurturing environment that encourages children aged birth to 5yrs. physical, mental, emotional, and social development through a variety of play experiences.
1) To provide a warm nurturing environment where children aged birth to five years old can develop physically, emotionally and socially in an appropriate and safe manner
2) To provide an opportunity for young parents to pursue their educational goals
3) To provide an environment where parents can actively participate in their children's care and development
Child Care Programs
Caregivers are attentive to each child’s cues and adapt the schedule to ensure every child’s eating, playing, diapering and sleeping needs are met. A daily record will be filled out by parents and staff to ensure consistency of care and share any exciting and/or important things that occur throughout the day. Infants are taken outside daily to go for a neighborhood walk or have an opportunity for gross motor play on our covered outdoor deck.
Toddlers to age 5 years
Toddlers and preschool aged children follow a more consistent daily routine that meets their needs. This consistency helps children to feel secure as they know what to expect next. With that said the daily routine is always flexible and will meet the changing needs of the children.
Our programs have policies in place to ensure a balance of activities through the day from fine motor art activities, to gross motor exploration. We value the play opportunities, skill development, and experiences that the outdoors provide us with, which is why we spend time outside every day, rain or shine!
