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.

Child Care Programs at Our Lady of Charity
At Footsteps Family Centre, we offer several different programs of child care such as before and after care, full day, and JK/SK full days to help accommodate your schedule. Our centre accepts children enfant to 12 years of age including children with special needs or physical disabilities. Our before and after school care runs with the school year, but we do offer full time child care during the summer and winter breaks at Our Lady of Charity. All of our early childhood educators are members of the College for Early Childhood Educators meaning you can rest assured your child is properly taken care of by professionals. To learn more about our child care check out our facilities and price guide pages.
You can also download and read our parent handbook for more detailed information and policies.
