A parent bulletin board is located at the entrance of the cafe. Please take time to read and feel free to share information with the centre and other parents.


Age appropriate rules and limitations have been set and will be discussed with your child. Age appropriate courtesy, respect and manners are EXPECTED at the center and field trips. No form of physical punishment will be allowed. We feel redirection, realizing consequences, denial of privileges and parent conferences will make a better impact. Failure to obey the rules will also result in age-appropriate thinking time. Field trips will not be permitted unless proper behavior is exhibited at the center for safety reasons. Conferences will be held upon parent or staff request to discuss commendable or inappropriate behavior and to form unified plans.
