History Friends Day Care opened in 1971 as a parent co-operative. It was incorporated in 1991 and has since operated as a not-for-profit centre, licensed by the Ministry of Education. Our volunteer Board of Directors consists of parents and other individuals from the community. Friends Day Care is also a registered charity.
Ages we care for
We accept children from 2.5 to 5 years of age, although our licence does allow for up to five children between 24 and 30 months.
Kindergarten aged children who are not attending school, can take part in our in-house Kindergarten Program.
Staff Warm and caring staff is a priority at Friends Day Care. Jeff Sagara R.E.C.E. & Lorna Meggitt R.E.C.E. are the Co-Supervisors, and the team include a third full-time R.E.C.E. and part-time assistant staff. Every staff member receives annual CPR training and maintains First-Aid certification. Together our staff has almost 50 years of Friends Day Care experience!
