The program was formed in 1985 as a non-profit, community-based child care centre. The program has a history of partnership with the school, the School Council and school community. It is owned and operated by a voluntary board of directors, most of whom are parents of children in the program.
Devonshire Child Care Centre provides a safe, well-supervised facility with comfortable atmosphere in which the daily program meets the needs and interests of the participating children. The program goals are to provide both individual and group learning opportunities in both indoor and outdoor environments. The curriculum is designed to allow flexible, spontaneous activities based on the children’s interests. Following the Early Learning for Every Child Today document and How Does Learning Happen, our Registered Early Childhood Educators provide a stimulating, educational, play-based environment which guides the children’s learning, enhances their knowledge and meets their individual developmental needs.
