Colonel By Child Care Centre


Colonel By Child Care Centre is located on the Carleton University campus and provides child care for families currently connected with Carleton University (current students, faculty and employees). On rare occasions, we may have a space for a community family.

We offer a full day infant program for children under 18 months, as well as a full day toddler program for children ages 18 months to 2.5. Finally, we offer a full day preschool program for children between the ages of 2.5 and 5 years old.
