Notice of re-opening:


Following our abrupt closure due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, Footsteps Family Centre is re-opening this fall.


For those families that are already affiliated with our program, things will look and feel very different now. However, in order to operate and ensure a safe environment, we must all commit to do whatever is necessary to keep our children safe. Parents will be required to sign an agreement/acknowledgement/understanding of the local public health requirements prior to returning to the centre.


Footsteps Family Centre is committed to providing a safe & healthy learning environment. In order to ensure operations success, we will follow protocols and procedures for daily health checks, exclusion of children, parents, and staff who are sick, infection prevention, and control and sanitary practices, as well as in- program health considerations.

Fully Licensed Child Care

Footsteps Family Centre is a fully licensed child care centre. We are a non-profit organization offering full time and part time child care programming for children enfant to 12 years. Located in Thunder Bay, our centre has been serving the community for 20 years now.

Care for Special Needs Children

Every child is unique, and our child care centre offers services that cater to our diverse community. We welcome all children to our facility. Full time on-site resource teachers are available for children with special needs and physical disabilities. We coordinate our resources and staff in order to offer all children the care they deserve.

Small, Personal Centre

We’re a small centre located in the Our Lady of Charity School. We’ve recently installed a natural playscape for children to enhance their outside recreational time. The majority of our staff has been with us since the beginning, ensuring your child receives professional care from individuals with hands-on experience. To learn more about our centre, hear from the parents. You can also download and read our parent handbook for more detailed information and policies.
