At our Tsleil-Waututh Child & Family Development Centre, we provide holistic, quality care for children from six months to five years old. We promote healthy development in children, families and the community using a strength-based approach, which is family focused, community-based and culturally inclusive.
We have incorporated traditional Tsleil-Waututh education, language, and culture into our childcare curriculum, in response to what our community, leadership, and parents have requested. We also look at other First Nations’ cultures and the cultures of families enrolled in the centre. We recognize moving to a new environment can be challenging, so we support young preschool students moving into kindergarten. We want parents and our childcare and school teams to feel confident about the transition. Our goal is to help put children on the path to success in their educational careers. We have daycare 30 seats open to the greater community, providing support for infants, toddlers and pre-school. Parents can apply here. TWN has won a Child Care Award of Excellence in the innovation category, one of four awarded by the Ministry of Child and Family Development, in all licensed child care centres in BC.
