We support working families with; full day care, extended hours of operation and by working in conjunction with the provincial government to support families through the Affordable Child Care subsidy program.

Our Values
Paradise feels like a home away from home, where our team is a family, our educators take pride in their purpose, where children feel welcome and safe to express and explore who they are and where parents have complete confidence knowing that their children are in responsible and nurturing hands. We value our community connections and involvement, our own personal growth and professional development, earth awareness through gardening and composting initiatives and the opportunity as a group care facility to cultivate meaningful relationships whether during circle time or through our larger family events.

Our Guidance
At Paradise our philosophy for guidance is to always maintain a respectful, encouraging and positive approach in guiding children’s development. Our educators model appropriate, positive social behaviors to support children on their journey toward independence. This approach teaches self-regulation and kindness, for themselves and all things. Our goal is for your child’s experiences away from home to be positive and enjoyable. We understand that each and every child is unique, recognizing that children’s needs differ and that each child needs to be considered individually is a primary focus for providing effective guidance and nurturing care.
