Children's Centre

Tumbler Ridge Children’s Centre’s goal is to provide your child with a safe, happy learning environment. Through play and social interaction, your child will acquire skills necessary for growth and development which will prepare them for a life long road to early learning.

We offer Preschool and Before and 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-old and three days a week for 4-year-old. Before & After School Care is for children ages 5 to 12-years-old. All children have the opportunity to build foundational concepts in literacy, language development and mathematical concepts 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.
