Colonel By Child Care Centre

Who We Are

Early in 2020 Andrew Fleck Children’s Services (AFCS) welcomed Colonel By Child Care Centre as one of our group sites. Located at Carleton University, 1125 Colonel By Drive, this program has been an important service to the community providing quality early learning and care since 1969.

The centre provides a complement to parental care within a warm and caring learning environment that both nurtures the individual child and supports the families’ needs. The programs are rich in discovery, fun and learning activities that are designed to help enhance each child’s self-esteem and sense of self-worth. The programs are based on the ELECT (Early Learning for Every Child Today) and How Does Learning Happen curriculum. Children are introduced to activities and opportunities that support their emotional, social, creative, cognitive and physical growth.

What We Do

Our programs offer a child-focused curriculum where staff and children work together to expand and develop a wide range of skills and competence based on the emergent curriculum philosophy. An emergent curriculum is one that builds upon the interests of the children. It is often spontaneous and responsive to their immediate interests; topics are driven by the ideas and questions from the children themselves.

Our Team

The onsite Program Coordinator and full-time teaching staff all have Early Childhood Education qualifications or a recognized equivalency, are registered with the College of ECE, and hold valid First Aid and CPR. Our staff are dedicated, professional and eager to welcome your child into our fun learning environment.
