GBC Childcare Centre

Since 2010, GBC Childcare Centre has been providing a quality childcare program that addresses the full development of each child. GBCCC is a caring Christian community striving to bring about collaboration between the home and our centre.

Our Emergent Curriculum provides opportunities and experiences that encourage being in relationship with God and one another and building faith while exploring children’s individual interests, needs and abilities.

GBCCC partners with families in setting strong foundations socially and emotionally by using Jane Nelson’s Positive Discipline Strategies. These strategies are rooted in teaching, training and guiding children toward developing the skills needed to succeed in life.  (www.positivediscipline.com)

About Us

GBC Childcare Centre believes a child’s play is not a leisure practice but rather a child’s work, and it is through their play that they learn important academic concepts. In addition, play provides opportunities to practice and develop the skills and abilities that they will need, not only when they enter the school system but as they go through life.

Children’s learning is enhanced when they are actively engaged, involved in and encouraged in their own abilites using a variety of teaching and learning processes.

As our program is consistent with the principles of Grace Baptist Church, we enhance children’s moral growth by encouraging children to treat everyone with love and respect since others are also made in God’s image. Bible stories and songs are also used to foster an awareness of God’s love for us.

Staff

GBC Childcare Centre staff are paid, certified and trained professionals who have a heart and love for children. Staff will continually participate in professional development to develop their skills.

Facility

GBC Childcare Centre has inviting classrooms that open up into a beautiful floor to ceiling mural hallway that captures the attention of both children and adults alike. We are blessed to have daily access to a full size gymnasium in addition to our own fully-fenced and secured playground that is only accessible through the gym.

With a commercial size kitchen available on the premises, we provide a food service which includes a morning snack, hot lunch and afternoon snack. Our location, just off of Memorial Drive, offers easy accessibility to public transit and the downtown core. There are also a variety of community parks near by.
