Do you accept families that receive a Child Care Subsidy from the BC Government?

What are your hours?

We consider the needs of our families. Hours can be adjusted by mutual agreement.

Queen’s Park Daycare will be closed on statutory holidays and for 2 weeks during the winter holidays.

Do children need to be toilet trained to attend daycare?

No. Some children are not ready for toileting at such a young age and that’s okay. You supply the diapers and wipes, and we’ll take care of the rest. We will also help with toilet training when the time is right.

What is your discipline policy?

In all of our actions, we strive to support the child and encourage growth in a loving environment. We do this by setting clear boundaries and expectations, modeling appropriate behaviour and providing choices where possible. We provide positive reinforcement, allow for natural consequences and redirect energy into positive outcomes. In rare cases of ongoing behaviour issues, we will privately discuss options with the parents that might include more support or changes to the routine at home.

Do you accept children with special needs?

Absolutely! Queens Park Daycare has provided care for children with Autism, Down Syndrome, FASD, ADHD and severe allergies. We find that including a child with challenges into the group helps everyone grow and it has always been a positive experience.

For more complex special needs, a dedicated staff member may be needed. If this is the case, we will work with you and Supported Child Development to apply for the necessary funding.

Unfortunately, at this time, Queens Park Daycare is not wheelchair accessible.
