The Belleville location offers licensed daycare, child care is offered also through before and after school programs in Batawa and Stockdale and typically summer programs are offered throughout July and August for school aged children.
Family Support Program
The Family Support Program fosters community. It provides parents the opportunity to come and engage with other parents who to might be struggling or thriving and wish to share. Family support aims to help parents find solutions within themselves to meet any parenting challenges they may be facing. The program is led by the Resource Centre Co-ordinator involving the parents to determine their unique needs and the needs of child(ren). The program is not a one-size fits all approach. Rather it aims to help families in their unique situations. During the program parenting approaches, skills and discussions will be take place, in order to better equip parents with challenges. Where possible parents may be mentored in a child care setting with our child care staff.
Topics might include child attachment, creating a safe home, nurturing your child and how to talk to kids and get them to listen. Whether you are a new parent or a seasoned one, the Family Support program provides a valuable resource.
Family Support Program is offered in the Frankford, Trenton, Stirling and Belleville Centres. For more information please call the Resource Centre Co-ordinator in the Centre closest to you.
Before and After School Care
The Before and After School Care Program offers parents the flexibility to extend their working hours without the worry of having to find a day care provider outside the school location. The program is offered directly at the school and offers extended care both in the mornings and in the afternoons. The morning hours are for 6:30 am to the start of the school day and afternoons are from the end of the school day until 6:00 pm. The Before and After School programs are supervised by Registered Early Childhood Educators. The program is designed around play based learning, designed to engage children in a fun and safe environment conducive to learning. A typical ritual might include circle time, craft time, snack time and indoor or outdoor activities, however the program is aimed and designed around flexibility and meeting the needs of the children first and foremost.
Before and After School Care is currently being offered at Stockdale Public School in Stockdale and Sacred Heart Catholic School in Batawa. For more information please call Chantelle Bates at the main office in Trenton at 613-965-1167.
