About Us

We have a provincial license from the Ministry of Health. We are a non-profit society and a registered charity. We operate at David Lloyd George Elementary School in Marpole but we are not part of the Vancouver School Board. Children at DLG are in the same boundary as Magee, Churchill, and Ideal Secondary Schools.

Our centre pioneered school-age child care in September 1974 with dedicated parents and 12 children from
6 to 12 years old. We were the first child care centre to integrate children who need extra support. We have assisted in opening school-age programs in several other communities. Our Staff go through police screening and first aid training.

Our Mission

Our creative staff inspires children to use their imaginations and to discover the world around them using real life exploration and a hands-on learning experience. In our sharing, caring, safe and happy environment, a child’s natural curiosity is recognized and his / her sense of wonder is nourished.

Our Philosophy

We recognize individuals: your child is encouraged to develop his / her social, emotional, physical and intellectual skills. Your child is responsible for his / her own actions. We promote self-worth and confidence.

We meet in groups: our centre believes in equality and strives to be non-sexist and non-racist. Our programs try to reflect the various cutlures of the children. We promote respect for others and co-operation.

We participate in the community: children use and contribute to the neighbourhood. We promote a sense of belonging and steps to independence.

Our Objectives

  • Establish reasonable limits for your child consistent with his / her own abilities: make him / her accountable to someone
  • Provide resources so your child may develop talents and explore new interests: offer passive and active opportunities
  • Assist you in raising a responsible child by giving consistent guidance – the direction your child receives will ultimately rest with you
  • Promote necessary social and community skills so your child may successfully pursue leisure activities when he / she no longer needs the security of our centre
