Our child-centered approach aims to meet the child where they are at and inspire a love for learning and creativity. Our trained educators are always excited to be a part of the child’s learning journey.
How to Register
You must register with the Provincial Child Care Registry in order to obtain a spot for your child. It is also the central way to register for multiple child care centre waiting lists all in one place.
Be sure to keep your account active by logging in at least once a month to confirm you are still looking for a spot.
If a space becomes available for your child, a member of the CHANCES team will contact you.
Please Note: The Provincial registry is the only way to obtain a space for your child at CHANCES – please do not contact the centres directly inquiring about a space for your child.

“They even have something like a parent-teacher interview, and they would bring up blind spots that my husband and I were not aware of. They are not only teaching the children but teaching the parents.”
“The communication is definitely there. It is such a team feeling. I had my older son at two different places, and it wasn’t the same feeling of working together, which is very helpful. They are not taking all the responsibility and leaving me aside or vice versa. There is knowledge in research and they are up to date. They are interested in new research and are flexible and open.”
