Celebrating the Journey

Message

Milestones Children’s Centre is conveniently located on the corner of Sunset and Shaw Valley Drive. Our 1.5 acre location is home to a building designed and built specifically with the needs of children in mind, ample parking spaces and 3 play yards that look onto a treed area for a park like setting.

Milestones Children’s Centre is licensed for 88 children including infants, toddlers and preschoolers.

Milestones Children’s Centre is committed to creating a safe and nurturing environment in which your child can explore and learn at his/her own rate of development. MCC programs include activities from a wide variety of areas including: educational play, dramatic play, creative experiences, music appreciation, social relationships, opportunities for large and fine muscle development, rest, fresh air and quiet story times.

The program and environment, both physical and emotional, are designed to accept each child as an individual. The Educators cultivate the self-esteem of the children by involving them in day-to-day decisions, problem solving when conflicts arise and by treating each and every child as an individual.

The success of our Children’s Centre is based largely on the quality of our program Educators. Milestones Children’s Centre strives to employ Early Childhood Educators who are registered in good standing with the College of Early Childhood Educators or those who are currently working towards an ECE diploma. All Educators and the classrooms are evaluated monthly to ensure that licensing requirements and the expectations of MCC are maintained and exceeded. In addition, each classroom is evaluated using a quality assurance rating scale.

In order to maintain quality and to stay current, all Educators are required to participate in at least 8 hours of professional development per year.

All employees are required to have:

  • valid Standard First Aid & CPR
  • up to date immunization
  • Criminal Reference Check
  • ongoing professional development
