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.
