Our Centres are licensed facilities, inspected annually by the province of Nova Scotia. We follow the regulations set out in the Nova Scotia Day Care Act and Regulations, which are monitored by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. Our staff is highly qualified and experienced and all staff are trained in First Aid. We offer safe, clean environments where your child can have fun experiences and learn new skills each day.
