Child Care

We believe that all children, including those with delays, disabilities or special needs can benefit from participation in comprehensive, fully integrated programming, in a supportive setting which emphasizes each child’s unique worth as an individual and as a member of the peer community, while recognizing and providing for individual needs. All of Kootenay Family Place’s Early Learning & Child Care facilities are fully inclusive and have access to a range of Early Intervention Programs to facilitate the successful inclusion of children requiring additional supports.

Our Centres enhance the lives of children and families by providing a caring, supportive environment that celebrates family diversity. We recognize and respect that families are unique in their values, experiences, expectations and needs. Staff encourage parents to share their own customs, traditions and languages with staff and children at the Centre.

Hobbit Hill Children’s Centre is one of the longest standing child care programs in the Kootenay region. Hobbit Hill is a fully inclusive facility and provides licensed school age care for 6 to 12 year olds.
