We operate seven licensed Child Care Centres, a licensed Home Child Care program and a Community Outreach program.

We offer high quality early learning and child care programs where play-based learning opportunities abound, and where the parental role is truly respected.

At Global Child Care Services, we have an abiding respect for children.  Every day, we strive to provide a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment that supports the optimal development of the whole child – the global child.

What do we mean by the global child?

it simply means we pay attention to the whole child.

  • We acknowledge the important context of the family life of the children in our care, and demonstrate to each child our respect for their family, whatever its composition; we encourage their own sense of pride in their family and culture
  • We provide opportunities for the children to learn about the world they live in and gain a sense of themselves as global citizens, and as proud Canadian citizens

  • We help children develop an understanding of nature and their relationship and responsibility to it

  • We foster children’s physical and cognitive growth – encouraging development of their bodies and their brains

  • We promote children’s emotional and social development – building self-esteem and self-confidence, encouraging self-awareness and constructive communication skills; helping them to develop relationships with their peers, and supporting their relationships with the important adults in their lives

  • We seek to help them in their journey of becoming who they are meant to be – their best selves - in a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment

Our child care programs are licensed by the provincial Ministry of Education under the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014.

A registered charity, Global is governed by a volunteer board of directors.
