At Friends Forever Childcare Centre we believe all children can benefit from an early childhood education that is designed to promote their individual needs and, as one of Ontario’s premier childcare centres, it’s our mission to facilitate your child’s personal development in all areas.

Friends Forever staff strive to create a safe, home-like atmosphere with appropriate role modeling and positive reinforcement that allows your child to learn through play and enhance their understanding of the world around them. Along with as-needed emotional support, our approach enhances a child’s self-esteem, and improves their ability to self-regulate. Through this, your child can feel confident in their ability to accomplish anything.
