Healthy Baby and Healthy Toddler

Our Healthy Baby and Healthy Toddler Clubs provide a variety of learning opportunities and free resources for pregnant women and parents of children up to age 5.


Our daycare provides full- and part-time care designed to build developmental assets, as well as user-paid drop-in and free respite (based on availability)

Centre for Northern Families

In April of 2017, the Centre for Northern Families daycare and family programs moved to a newly renovated location at 5117 54th Street.  The new building houses a daycare for twenty-two children, our Healthy Baby and Healthy Toddler programs, and an accessible community space that can be used for meetings, meals and other community and family gatherings.
