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.

Lorna Meggitt RECE. is the centre Supervisor, and the team includes Mary Lakatos RECE, Polina Belaia B.A., RECE, and two part-time assistants.
