Our History

Welcome to Action Centre Day Nursery. This non-profit day care provides care for your children when they have to be away from the home during part of the day; if circumstances call for care in the home to be supplemented. The children are cared for by pre-school and infant Early Childhood Educators. It is their role to provide an environment that will allow and encourage your child to develop to their fullest potential in social, emotional, physical, and intellectual areas of growth.

Our Centre was started in 1971 as a Nursery School. By 1975 we became a full time day care centre for Children aged 2 – 6 because the nursery was no longer meeting the needs of the community. In 1990, the Centre expanded the operations to include children 12 weeks to two years. (We now have a limited number of school age spaces.)

The day care is managed by a Board of Directors that consists of interested parents and members from other agencies in the community. The Board of Directors are responsible to set the policies, (both parent and staff policies), for the operation of the Centre; and revisions or deletions must be approved by the Board.

Mission Statement

This daycare centre is committed to providing a safe, caring, and nurturing environment that ensures and allows for each child to reach their optimum levels in development. It is important to work with families to empower our children as we strive to develop them to become capable people. We believe this will lend to the development to brighter futures of tomorrow.

Our Philosophy

All children are entitled to certain basic rights. This includes nurturing and consistent quality care.

Children are all unique. They must all experience similarities according to development stages, but these experiences can occur at different times. Children need experiences from which they can develop in their own individual and unique way.

Early Childhood Educators need to be educated in Early Childhood Development to ensure they have the knowledge to recognize and understand changes in child developmental stages, knowing they can occur rapidly as well as understanding the importance of them.

Early Childhood Educators need to provide guided play experiences and actives in all curriculum areas that allow for children to develop to the optimum at each developmental stage.

Recognizing that pre-schoolers are in the stage of pre-operational thought, Early Childhood Educators will provide “hands on” experiences where the child can internalize the thought process as they continue their development.

Parents are recognized as important persons in each child’s life. It is important for the Early Childhood Educators and parents to develop a respectful liaison to benefit the family involved. For the well-being of the child, Early Childhood Educators and parents need to communicate their needs and concerns effectively.
