Daycare

We believe in the importance of the whole child and create a space where children aged 3-5 years feel safe and secure. We strive to help each child reach their full potential by giving many opportunities to explore, discover, PLAY and experience meaningful activities and events in a rich, nurturing, and high quality Early Learning environment.

Daycare & Location Details

Daycare

We view all children as individuals who bring their own unique ideas, learning styles, and are competent, capable and curious.

We support all aspects of a child’s social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and creative development and we strive for each child to experience a sense of belonging and inclusion.

Our dedicated Early Childhood Educators connect each family’s unique diverse strengths and maintain relationships based on mutual trust, openness, and respect. Communication is vital and we encourage two-way dialogue between parents and educators.

To support quality in our programs we invest in our educators and provide professional learning opportunities and encourage reflective practise.

After School Programs

BGC Okanagan After School Programs are the best place for children to be after the school bell. For 60 years we have been providing programs to children and we know what kids love to do! Children will be provided time to play outside, sports, games, creative arts, a daily nutritional snack, and fun leisure activities. Our staff develop a special, caring relationship with each child, encouraging them to explore areas of interest, create new friendships, and develop their personal growth.

After School Programs

After school programs emphasize a sense of belonging, help make positive choices, learn healthy behaviours and build on a child’s strengths encouraging them to reach their potential. Parents often comment that they “trust our staff in caring for their children.” We understand the importance of physical health, social and emotional development, learning, and allowing kids to be themselves in a supportive, safe place where they are encouraged to explore, try new activities, and have a lot FUN!
