Our Non-Profit Mission

Provide Quality Child Care at Every Stage of Life

We are committed to helping children reach their full potential by providing the highest quality of care and learning in our community.

As a non-profit charitable agency, we are committed to only one thing: your child. Thanks to generous funding from the Ministry of Education through the City of Ottawa, our main concern is not to make a profit, but rather to ensure that your child thrives in our care.

For over 45 years, we've supported families as well as home-based child care providers to ensure all children in our community receive high-quality care and learning. Here's why and how we do it.
