Licensed Child Care Availability
Centre-based Child Care Program Availability
On June 9th, 2020, the Provincial government announced the reopening of child care in Ontario as early as June 12th.
All of the Andrew Fleck Children’s Services programs are working towards meeting the new province-mandated child care health and safety regulations. The measures put in place have significantly reduced the number of children our centres and home child care providers can safely accommodate.
Ours teams have begun to welcome back the children who were enrolled prior to the pandemic closures, but are still in the process of determining how many families will resume care. As such, we cannot guarantee availability at this time.
Any remaining available spaces will be offered to the families on our waitlists.
Please ensure you continue to update your program choices, preferred start date, and contact information on the City of Ottawa Child Care Registry and Waitlist.
We appreciate your continued confidence in the quality and safety of the early learning and child care services offered by our agency.

Who We Are
Andrew Fleck Children’s Services has been providing early learning and care to families of Ottawa since 1911. Our centres provide licensed child care for children between the ages of 18 months and 12 years of age located in various locations throughout Ottawa.

What We Do
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.
