Our Program for infant-Toddlers (aged 10 months-3 years) invites children on a daily adventure in an active, safe, Loving and secure environment.

Fernie Childcare Society is more than just a place where children receive care. Our program provides children specialized attention and opportunities to develop through play.  Our staff is trained in infant/toddler care, and health and safety measures specifically for an infant/toddler classroom.  Teachers also regularly attend professional development seminars and courses to keep themselves inspired, fresh and up to date with current research and teaching techniques.
