Our vision is to provide early childhood education programs in a home-like, supportive and inspiring child-focused centre. September 2015, we began our “Under One Roof” Expansion Project. January 4, 2016, we accomplished our vision by consolidating all of our programs, children and staff, in one location, through an addition to our accessible child care center on 352 York Street. We added a wheelchair accessible extension of 49’ x 39’ which includes two classrooms, an accessible washroom, an office, a foyer with secured access, hallway for cubbies and a huge new backyard with sliding hill to be developed.
We need your assistance. Every dollar you contribute helps keep fees manageable to the parents and grandparents in our community and enables us to spend these valuable funds on providing top-notch programs. Your donation also directly contributes to Bridgewater’s prosperity by helping us create a facility that will meet the needs of our growing community. Please keep in mind that as a registered charity, we will issue a tax receipt for any donations received.
