The best way I can describe my experience with Junior Citizens is that when my daughter wakes up in the mornings, she asks me if she gets to go to "school" today to play with her friends?! She's 3 years old. That, to me, speaks for itself.

to my child going into daycare I was (like most parents) terrified
about leaving my little boy in someone elses care. I have to say
though from day 1, I felt so comforted to know that he was in such great care. When
he was on the infant side, teacher encouraged me to call her anytime if I
wanted to check in on how he was doing, which was so thoughtful and helped me
feel at ease. When I would come to pick him up at the end of the day the
staff would always be willing to answer any questions I had about how his
day was. I liked the fact that there was an effort to go outside
On the toddler side, Blake is in his
glory. He actually doesn't want to come home most of the time when I come pick
him up at the end of the day! He is always excited to show me his toys and
activities that he has been doing during the day. He is such a busy boy and I
know that there is a wide variety of activities planned in the day (from
physical activities to outside time to story and song time), which I am really
happy with. I feel that he has learned so much in terms of sharing, patience, and
behaving. My child went through a phase of biting, and obviously I
was very upset with this. I really appreciated the way the teachers dealt with
it and reassured me that it was just a phase and gave me excellent tips on how
to deal with this phase. All the staff are so nice and I can tell that they
love the children very very much. They always take the time to let me know how my
child’s day went and if there were any problems with his day. If anyone is
sitting on the fence about choosing JCCC, I would highly recommend it and
know that their children will be in excellent hands.
My daughter had been at Junior Citizens for nearly two years. She has thrived at the centre because of the care and compassion that her teachers show her and the variety and structure of the program. She loves going to daycare and is fully engaged in all ot the learning there. Each day she comes home with a new song or story to share and tells us all about the fun she's had playing and learning. I feel like the centre has helped her learn som of life's most valuable lessons for a child - care, compassion, sharing and how to love others.
your child going to daycare can be a hard transition for parents.
However, when your child comes home beaming about how wonderful his day is, you
know you’ve made the right decision. Junior Citizen provides a place
where our son has an opportunity to experience various activities, explore
different surroundings and engage with lots of friends. His daycare
providers are an encouraging and dedicated team who help our child
thrive. We feel so fortunate to have this amazing place as his home away
Junior Citizens staff are
very caring and dedicated to the well-being and safety of our 2 daughters in
their care. They work very hard to accommodate our schedules and our
children's needs. Our daughter has been through 2 surgeries while
participating in this program and the staff has gone out of their way to
reintegrate her back into the class in a safe and holistic manner. All
the staff, even those not working directly with my children, know who we are
and foster a positive community. We do not worry about our children when
they are at Junior Citizens because they are with people who care about them.
We are very happy to
have our two boys at JCCC. They have enjoyed Junior Citizens as the place to read and write their first
words, to relax after school, to participate in fun programs, and to spend time
with friends. Whenever we are on vacation, after a few days we hear the
question: "Mom, when is the daycare going to be open again?" Thank
you, JCCC Staff, for your warmth, energy and patience.
daughter has been going to JCCC since she was 14 months old. She is now over
2.5 years old and I am so happy with her care and development there. The staff
are so nice and loving. She has learned so much; she surprises me with things
she has learned there that I wouldn't have thought she was ready to learn yet.
She knew the alphabet and could count to 20 quite early. I don't think I would
have even began to teach her that early yet myself and there she was, reciting
the whole thing! Her days are enjoyable, filled with fun songs, outside play,
circle time, and lots of friends. She comes home and says she had a great day
each day. I would 100% recommend JCCC to my friends and family. I feel very
comfortable dropping my child off there for the day.
We feel so fortunate to have
found Junior Citizens Child Care Centre for child care of our 2 and 5 year old
children. We have been with them since the children were 10 months and 3 years
old, and have been thrilled with the quality of care they have received.
As a primary school teacher
I see that they use the best of several different philosophies. The staff are
constantly upgrading their skills and problem solving together. There is a
focus on the the well being of the whole child their social, emotional,
and educational needs are always at the forefront. Our children have been happy
and settled at JCCC. We often have trouble getting the kids to leave because
they are having such a nice time with their friends.
The staff have been so helpful in seeing areas
where the children are developing and helping to guide them to be their best
I have always felt that the
children are in good hands when they go to daycare. Knowing that they are safe
and happy I can go to work and not worry about them until I pick them up at the
end of the day.
We couldn't be happier with
Junior Citizens Child Care and would eagerly recommend them to our friends and
