Child Care

Compass Early Learning and Care, formerly known as Kawartha Child Care Services, is a progressive, non-profit organization where we work collaboratively to provide excellence in early learning and care. The richness and uniqueness of our learning environments are an invitation for adults and children to discover together the joy of learning. Through documentation, portfolios and learning stories, we engage families in the daily life of our programs.

Our child care programs have been designed to provide beautiful open classrooms with large windows to connect each space to the outdoors. Our outdoor playground offers children a natural space inside a suburban area. We understand the complexities and challenges for families today and with many of our families commuting to other cities for work, we are proud to offer a space for children as their home away from home.
