Our History

We were established in the spring of 1986 as a private, non-profit organization to serve child care needs in York Region. Beginning with a licensed Home Child Care service, we have expanded into other areas and developed additional Centre programs and community resources in response to the needs of families for both choice and quality in the education and care of their children.
