The Board of Directors
Kingston Day Care was incorporated in 1967 and is a charitable, non-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is accountable for the delivery of services, ensuring that services are responsive and reflective of community need.
Kingston Day Care Inc. currently operates four child care centres in Kingston, Ontario - St. Martha Child Care Centre, Trillium Child Care Centre, Collins Bay Child Care Centre, and Our Lady of Lourdes Before and After School Programs.
The Board's duty is to advance the mission and program statements in all activities. They meet monthly throughout the year to stay abreast of all things financial, operational and otherwise important to the success of Kingston Day Care as a non-profit organization.
Provide high quality early learning programs that encourage and promote success during the early and middle years, setting a strong foundation for life-long learning.
To continue to be recognized as a leader in the childcare community, seek opportunities to broaden our services and enhance early learning experiences for children, their families and staff.
Our Program Statement & Core Values
We offer a caring and engaging experience where all participants are encouraged to learn and grow to reach their full human potential. We work cooperatively and enthusiastically in an atmosphere of trust, confidence and mutual respect. We help children discover and share the wonder of life by providing a nurturing environment where all can PLAY, EXPLORE and BE.
We view children as being competent, capable, curious and rich in potential. We view our educators as high quality early childhood specialists who value and respect each child and understand the significance of both the physical and social environment as it pertains to their PLAY.
At Kingston Day Care we provide encouraging and nurturing environments which foster exploration, play and inquiry. We are committed to providing high quality interactive, child initiated programs. A Pedagogical Leader has been identified to mentor our educators and support the implementation of our Program Statement. Our programs are enriched by building relationships with parents, community partners, volunteers and students.
