Child Minding

The Centre offers a child minding service to children between the ages of six weeks and ten years, on a first come, first served basis during our service hours of operation. The service is not a licenced day care; it is a babysitting service with a maximum two hour stay per visit. As part of our health and safety policy and due to supervision ratios, bottle feeding, toileting, and diapering of untrained children is the responsibility of the parent or guardian and will be approached to assist your child(ren) to feed, use the washroom, and perform diapering as needed.
