Early Childhood Programs

Childcare that enhances a child’s wonder and curiosity

SSCS childcare programs are committed to providing inclusive quality childcare, for children ages 12 months-12 years, where children are the heart of a respectful and collaborative community. We offer a play-based environment inspired by the BC Early Learning Framework (BCELF) and the inquiring interests of the children and educators. We use the BCELF as a guide to areas of learning including well-being and belonging, exploration and creativity, languages and literacy as well as social responsibility and diversity.
