Program Statement

Preschool and Toddler Programs

Children are provided with a safe and secure environment where children are encouraged to grow socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually.  Our goal is to provide quality child care to children and support to their families by building positive relationships with both parents/caregivers and children.  Families can expect that their children will be cared for in a nurturing, respectful and positive manner.  Children are viewed as being competent, capable, curious and rich in potential.

Features

  • Meals: FIREFLY Child Care provides nutritionally balanced lunches and two snacks. FIREFLY discourages peanuts and fish due to allergies and will attempt to accommodate children with special dietary needs.

  • Specialized Services: FIREFLY Full Day Child Care Programs provide inclusive care for children who have developmental or physical challenges. The services for speech and language, occupational therapy, and physiotherapy are available through referral to FIREFLY.

  • Before & After School: The programs located at Evergreen School, King George School, Valleyview School, St. Louis School, and Keewatin Public School offer a variety of structured play as well as free play. A snack is provided at our after school programs.
