Children First

Children get a lot of attention at Centennial College. That's good news for the many students who are also parents.
Parents Always Welcome

Parents are always welcome to talk with staff members about their children's progress. One-way viewing rooms are also available.

Outstanding Standards and Staff

These centres are an integral part of Centennial, reflecting the college's strong belief in child health and development, and family advocacy. They're staffed by fully-qualified early childhood education professionals and assistants. As part of their training, students in the college's early childhood programs also work with the children, under the supervision of centre staff.

Two Child Care Centres

The college has two child care centres providing stimulating, high-quality care to children of students, employees and community members. The child care centres are located at Progress Campus and in East York at 550 Mortimer Avenue, not far from the Story Arts Centre.

Hours and Fee Arrangements

Child Care Centres are open weekdays year-round from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM and closed statutory holidays, Easter Monday and the last week in December. There is a fee for child care based on the child's age. Centennial College's facilities are licensed and approved to provide subsidized care. Parents should apply directly to Toronto Children's Services for the subsidy by calling 416-392-5437. Parents interested in arranging for child care are encouraged to call or drop by to discuss their needs.
