Children's Centre

Tumbler Ridge Children's Centre Society offers Preschool and Before & After School Care programs.  As the only licensed early learning and care facility in Tumbler Ridge we deliver quality programs lead by Early Childhood Educators.  Both programs are in session from September through June, with potential to run school age care through the summer if the interest is present.  Preschool is offered twice a week for 3 year olds and three days a week for 4 year olds.  Before & After School Care is for children ages 5-12 years old.  All children have opportunity to build foundational concepts in literacy, language development & mathematical conmcepts and develop socially, emotionally, physically, cognitively and creatively.  Our goal is to work with each child and their family to meet the child's individual needs.  For more information, call 250-242-4503 or visit www.trccs.ca
