Garderie Tunney’s Child Care
Who We Are
In 1988, Garderie Tunney’s Daycare (GTD) came into being as a fully bilingual, stand alone, child care centre located in the Tunney’s Pasture area inside the Statistics Canada Main building. Until 2018 Tunney’s operated at a capacity of 47 children.
- In 2018-2019 GTD renovated its centre to include spaces for 2 programs operating fully in French, one for toddlers and one for pre-schoolers thus increasing its capacity to 67 children.
- In October 2020, GTD closed its doors.
- In March 2021, Andrew Fleck Children Services became the new operator of Garderie Tunney’s Child Care.

What We Do
Tunney’s is licensed to offer early learning and care for 10 infants (6 weeks to 18 months), 25 Toddlers (18 months – 2.5 years) and 32 Preschool children (2.5 – 5 years of age). The centre strives to provide a safe, happy, healthy and stimulating environment for the children in its care while encouraging bilingualism through its dual-track French/English and French programming .
Each program offers 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.
All of the teaching staff are qualified in Early Childhood Education, or have an equivalent qualification, are registered with the College of ECE, plus hold First Aid / CPR qualifications. The staff continues to take advantage of workshops and courses in order to upgrade their skills, and develop new areas of expertise. Our staff is very committed to the welfare and development of children, and is always available for consultation, information, and resources.
Administrative and housekeeping staff, plus our creative cook, provide much needed support to the programs and help to ensure a comfortable and warm environment for everyone.
