The Comox Valley Children’s Day Care Society is a non profit charitable organization that has been offering exceptional child care and preschool programs for over 46 years! We operate Lighthouse Early Learning Centre in Courtenay, which provides child care for children aged 2 1/2 to 5, and Tigger Too in Comox, which offers preschool for 2 1/2 to 5 yr olds, and child care. We are very excited to announce that our brand new addition to Tigger Too will be open March 1, 2017 which will enable us to not only serve families for children 3 to 5, but also families of children 11 months to 3 years. This will mean that children requiring care can remain in the same building for up to 5 years and that sibling groups can be cared for at the same location.
At the CVCDCS we believe in family centered care – building relationships with children and families and supporting healthy child development. Our caring team of certified early childhood educators will provide environments and experiences that foster a sense of belonging, wonder and curiosity. We support a connection to community, culture and to our beautiful natural environment.
We are very proud of our designation as an “Early Years Satellite Centre”. Partnering with the Comox Valley Early Years Centre allows us to stay connected and to share with all of our families all of the wonderful programs and activities available for young children and their parents/caregivers. Our educators are thankful for the training and resources provided by the Early Years Centre. Being able to help families navigate their way through the many services open to them is a very important part of our job. Having those resources at our fingertips means that families can access information when they attend our programs – very convenient in these busy times. We share event posters with our families on our bulletin boards and on our facebook page which parents really appreciate.
Being a satellite centre creates a seamless “highway” if you will, so that educators, families and other early years professionals can learn and grow together. It reduces barriers , creates connection and builds relationships – the very definition of a healthy community! Visit us a www.cvcdcs.com or www.valleychild.ca
