Our Redwood Avenue location is situated within St. Vincent school at 150 Redwood Avenue West. We have a separate entrance and parking lot and are in a separate wing from the school that is located on the right side of the building.
We are licensed for 40 children: 6 infants, 10 toddlers, 16 preschool-aged children, and 15 school-aged children. Our school age program operates out of the school’s gymnasium from 3:20 PM to 5:30 PM.
We do not currently have a Site Supervisor at our St. Vincent location, but our Executive Director, Joy Vanasse, is stationed out of the St. Vincent site to assist with any concerns or issues you may have.
Our Head Food Preparer, Teresa, is located at our St. Vincent location and all of our meals are prepared on-site. Teresa also prepares lunch for our St. Ann location and it is transported to that centre each day.
We currently employ 7 regular educators at our St. Vincent location. We strive to hire qualified, knowledgeable educators with an educational background and experience in the field of Early Childhood Education. A knowledge of child development, an awareness of the Indigenous traditions, culture, and language is essential. Everyone at our centre works together as a team to provide a positive, responsive environment geared towards children and families.

Our outdoor play space consists of a shared, enclosed playground for the infants and toddlers and a separate enclosed playground that is shared with St. Vincent school for use by the preschool group. The school age children are more flexible in where they play, using the field, equipment, or the playgrounds.
