Children are our most precious and powerful gift. They are our future.
We are entrusted to facilitate their potential for social, emotional, physical, language, and cognitive development. Quality care is essential to achieve this goal.
Necessary components are caring and qualified staff, open communication between parents, staff and board members, involvement in the community and flexible programming that follows the children interests.
We provide children with a safe environment, clear guidelines and expectations, respectful discipline and consistency from caregivers. The center believes in continual professional development and high staff morale.
The center has a home-like atmosphere that is regularly monitored and adjusted to accommodate a rich learning atmosphere. Parents are encouraged to approach the staff with any concerns or comments and are welcome to visit any time.
Ongoing communication with the families, observations, and documentation help the Parent Board and staff to evaluate the program and ensure all needs are met.
HKC is a licensed, not for profit organization founded in July 1981. Our programs provide a safe, caring and nurturing place for children. We offer Programs for ages 30 months-School Age and 5-12 Years of Age.
Our Centre is run by a Parent Board that works closely with our team of qualified caregivers to provide each child with a wonderful experience in our centre.
All staff are criminal record checked and first aid certified. We have an open door policy feel free to drop in! We encourage new and current Parent's to stop by anytime to visit our program's and get to know our staff.
Each staff member brings a unique perspective and distinct skill set to our centre allowing for a broad range of daily activities and interactions with each child.
We are located on the school grounds of Highlands Elementary. We are housed in two portables on the field closest to Fairmont Road.
Our buildings just finished an extensive renovation. We hope to have more photo's to upload soon!
HKC ENCOURAGES families to drop in any time! Here we have an OPEN DOOR POLICY! View our centre or visit your kids anytime.
We would like to thanks Tri-Brothers Contractors for all the hard work they put into our buildings.
"We both found the entire staff at Highlands Kids Club to be engaged with our children and creative in their choices for activities through the week. Elsie and her staff have found a winning combination of field trips, arts-based activities and science projects that both our children enjoyed and shared with us during dinner time conversations. Our children have never been happier than when they were attending. We are looking forward to our children spending another summer next year with the team at Highlands Kids Club. Thanks to the whole team for creating such a great environment."
