Provincial Childcare Plan

The Provincial government signed a new childcare deal that will reduce the fees that parents will pay for daycare.  This is great news for families!  The deal will require that parents choose a licensed daycare program like ours!  We anticipate that the demand for licensed childcare will expand greatly as more families will be able to afford it for the first time.  We are looking for childcare Providers in our community!  There are so many benefits!


Providing safe, education, reliable, licensed child care in the Northumberland Community


“Even though we can call the office any time, it is nice to be able to have in-person discussions with my Home Visitor, Barb, and together socialize with the children and play a game. I appreciate the support. Thanks.”



“I enjoy Barb’s visits very much, and so do the children. She always has something fun for them, and I think they can feel her fondness for them. They are always happy to have seen her. It is nice to be able to ask questions about paperwork, behaviours, and just to unload about some things that have nothing to do with child care. She is knowledgeable and compassionate. Just sharing a laugh or a concern with an adult is a big plus for me. I would say the most important and valuable aspect of the home visits is the support.”
