Child Care

We offer year-round licensed child care options for children between 6 months and 12 years of age, as well as daily camps during school closures and weekly camps during the summer, spring, and winter breaks. Each child care program offers indoor and outdoor activities; with children using our large playground, Parkgate Community Centre’s gym, as well as visiting nearby parks and forested areas. We team up with seniors and volunteers in our community to broaden the children’s world to include people of all ages and abilities; building connections to our land, culture, and community.

Our professional team of early learning facilitators create a welcoming environment that is inclusive of children from all backgrounds and abilities and helps to stimulate children’s social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth.

Exceeding Standards

At Parkgate Society, we strive to exceed licensing regulations by having a better than required child/staff ratio and staying up to date with the newest standards and best practices of early learning. Our child care centres are equipped with high quality play equipment, including natural play and art materials.

We offer parents lowered fees as part of the Fee Reduction Initiative of the Ministry of Child and Family Development.  We also accept BC Affordable Child Care Benefits (formerly Child Care Subsidy) for our Infant/Toddler Program, 3-5 Program, School Age Care Program, and Day Camps.
