Taking care of children can be quite stressful. Here at Second Street Daycare, we provide daycare and educational services for children ages 0 to 12 to help ease your burden. We offer part-time and full-time childcare in Kirkland Lake, ON and surrounding areas. You can find us conveniently located on the Northern College campus.
Our non-profit organization has been around for more than 40 years. We are licensed by the Ontario Ministry of Education. The educators we employ are highly qualified and trained professionals. They are passionate about their careers working with children.
Second Street Daycare is funded by the District of Timiskaming Social Services Administration Board. They are responsible for determining eligibility for fee subsidies for parents. Being income based, this program offers a wider range of coverage for subsidies. The DTSSAB is also responsible for the quality of services in all childcare centers in the district of Timiskaming.
We use play-based learning to teach children under our care. Not only does this keep them occupied, but also accommodates individual learning stages. Through our programs, your child can develop self-confidence, self-esteem, independence, creativity, and cooperation.
Second Street Daycare is not just a simple childcare service. We also provide education and learning spaces for kids. Our play-based learning programs let children pick their curriculum based on their interests. Allowing them to decide helps with their independence and hones their creativity.
Before and after-school programs are available for students who are already undergoing formal schooling. Our facility can also have resource teachers come in to help your child depending on their needs. We regularly hold events involving children under our care and the community. This is to improve their social interaction skills.
The teachers we employ receive monthly training from different foundations. The training they receive is customized based on the students they handle. They are also trained in first aid and effective childcare techniques. As such, you can rest assured that your children are receiving the best possible care.
