General Information

vcci parent page

We believe that children can learn and grow when provided with a stimulating environment. We employ warm and caring individuals who offer guidance and maintain a creative program.

We encourage age appropriate, non-sexist, non-competitive and creative programming that allows children freedom of choice and an opportunity to gain independence and responsibility, and to develop a positive self-concept.

We believe in mutual respect and each child is treated as a respected individual.

Board of Directors

Our Centre is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of nine parent/guardian members. The Board meets regularly to set policies, plan events and deal with related child care issues. Parents/guardians are encouraged to run for positions on the Board of Directors.

Centres

Playrooms

Our playrooms, both preschool and school age, are divided into “learning centres”. Some of the learning centres available are:

Each of these centres are available to all the children on a daily basis. Each centre has a specific number of play spaces and is designed to facilitate and enhance children’s play experiences.

Nutrition

Parents/guardians are asked to provide their child with a nutritious lunch each day. The Centre will provide children with milk to go with their lunch. From November 1 to March 31 we will also offer a hot lunch on Fridays.

Nutrition plays an important role in the total physical and mental health of the children. VCCI follows the Canada Food Guide to ensure these needs are met.

The Centre provides two nutritious snacks per day consisting of a minimum of two food groups. Milk or juice is provided at lunch as a supplement, however parents/guardians may provide their own juice boxes. Water is always available during the day and children are encouraged to help themselves.

In keeping with ELCC regulations, we maintain a “peanut-free” environment at each of our locations.
