Our Mission is to deliver the highest standard of child care, based on the teaching principles of Dr. Maria Montessori.
We believe in a circle of learning where home and school work together as one to ensure happy healthy children. In the words of Maria Montessori, "One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child."
We are enthusiastic about the Montessori Method and our trained staff would be more than happy to tour you through our state-of-the-art daycare, show you our various learning centres and explain our programming. There is an article that co-owner Demetra Hajidiacos, a seasoned educator with a Masters Degree in Education (Curriculum, Teaching and Learning), and co-owner Leanne Howlett (Ph.D. candidate in Child Development) would also recommend.

The answer here is simple. The registration fee covers the cost of setting up a student in our system. We do not see the need to charge a family a yearly fee for a service we have already provided.
We are closed 11 weekdays of the calendar year. Our closure dates are as follows:
Remembrance Day (if on a weekday)
Boxing Day (if on a weekday)
New Year's Day
Louis Riel Day
August Civic Holiday
Please note: When daycares quote you a flat monthly fee, do take the time to do the math regarding your true daily costs. Are you paying for weeks of closure days (winter break, spring break, professional development days etc.)? If so, what is your actual daily fee?
We sure do. And one of the perks of being located so close to Assiniboine Park is we can go there for exploration and play. We also like to visit our furry neighbours at Assiniboine Park Zoo! All this is covered in your child's yearly supply fee!
We are a licensed daycare under the Province of Manitoba. We follow the exact protocols laid out by the Childcare Office as it pertains to the amount of students in the building at one time, student/staff ratios and the amount of trained staff per students in the building. We currently have over 100 children enrolled in our program.
We have over 500 children on our wait list but most of our wait list consists of children under the age of 2 years old (who are not currently eligible for a spot). If your child is over the age of two we may have a space become available this calendar year depending on the days/times you are looking for. So please do not hesitate to apply!
