Program Overview

The CYPRES Children’s Centre provides licensed full day care for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Our license capacity is 6 infants, 15 toddlers and 16 preschoolers.


At the CYPRES Children’s Centre we believe that all children are competent, capable, curious and rich in potential. We provide a supportive environment with a focus on belonging, confidence and creating a positive sense of self through responsive interactions among the children, parents and staff.

Our childcare providers help children interact and communicate in a positive way and support the development of self-regulation. The CYPRES philosophy promotes child-led, adult supported experiences and fosters individuality, exploration, play and inquiry.

Our setting offers a wide variety of natural materials and activities that enable children to make choices, ask questions, problem solve, and socialize while supporting each child’s individual learning and developement.

Our staff work in partnership with families to provide children with the tools they need in order to grow, learn and create a solid foundation for the future.
