Licensed Childcare

Daycare ( 2.5 – 5 Years )

Our licensed daycare has spaces for forty children.  The daycare is split into two rooms, one on our main floor level and one on our upper level.  We have four staff supervising each of our daycare rooms and twenty children in each room. Our daycare staff are ECE qualified; first aid certified, highly experienced educators with low turnover and committed to this community.  We have a daycare supervisor in each room as well as a childcare and family programmer that oversees all of our licensed programs.

We are a play-based centre with a focus on social emotional learning and kindergarten readiness. We are an inclusive program that accepts children of all abilities who might require extra support.   All of our children are included and integrated into all our daily activities. Free play, socialization, art & music as well as drama, story time and circles are all part of our daily programming. We believe that learning from peers, parents and teachers are an important cornerstone to the overall development of all children. We are flexible in our programming to meet the needs and interests of the children as well as their caregivers.

We are proud to offer two healthy snacks and a hot lunch program in our childcare centres by a qualified experienced cook at no extra cost.

Ray-Cam Co-operative centre partners with a variety of outreach programs which are all involved in creating a safe, creative and healthy daycare environment. We partner with nurse practitioners from the RICHER initiative as well as the Arts Umbrella’s drama program, creative arts and music and movement class. We also have regular visits from the librarian through the VPL for story times, music classes and a variety of other supports from the community.  We often do neighbourhood walks to local parks as well as larger field trips to the Aquarium, Children’s Festival and Science World.

Our fee is $750 per month.  You may be eligible for the Affordable Childcare Benefit funding through the provincial government, we have someone onsite who can help you apply for this funding to see if you are eligible.
