Our Philosophy

At the University Child Care Centre we believe that play is imperative during the early years of a child's life. The need to imagine, create, explore, and discover is at the core of a child and teaches them to relate to others and the world around them.  Our goal is to provide an exemplary, inclusive program that supports and encourages the unique potential within each child.  We do this by promoting the natural process of play in an enriched setting that provides optimal conditions for each child to grow, develop, and learn at his or her individual pace.
