Birchwood Childcare Service

Childcare services for families of children 5 to 12 years of age.

Key Message:

We believe that children and families thrive best in a strengths-based environment. Families are at the centre of services and supports are collaborative, culturally sensitive, individualized and flexible. We are trauma-informed and attachment based.

What we do:

At The Children’s Foundation every child is a special child, recognized for his or her unique personality. We believe a child needs a nurturing, secure, comfortable and stimulating environment to grow. We foster the child’s imagination, curiosity and creativity in a caring, stimulating, safe and supporting atmosphere, prioritizing play as an essential part of learning.

Birchwood Childcare Services strives to:

  • provide a nurturing, comfortable, stimulating environment and enriching program for children to develop the whole self

  • provide opportunities for children to gain self-confidence and to develop self-esteem

  • provide opportunities for children to learn respect for self, for others, for the environment and to learn the value of co-operation in work and play

  • work in partnership with parents to meet the needs of each child

  • value our staff and respect their skills and commitment to their profession
