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.
Having 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 from home.

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.
My 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 selves.
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 family.
