Our Story

For over thirty years, Children on the Hill Daycare has been dedicated to supporting children’s learning, development, health and well-being. This is embodied in our Early Childhood Educator’s caring and responsive approach to learning. Our program focuses on active learning, exploration, play and inquiry. We see children and their families as competent, able and active participants in all aspects of our program.

Active learning, Exploration, Play and Inquiry

Established in 1982, the Children on the Hill Daycare is incorporated under the Canada Corporations Act as a non-profit, bilingual organization and we receive funding from the City of Ottawa. It is managed by a voluntary Board of Directors consisting of parents whose children are enrolled in the Daycare.

The Daycare is licensed by the Ministry of Education under the Child Care and Early Years Act (CCEYA). Our Educators bring a wealth of experience in the field in addition to being certified in Early Childhood Education as well as registered members of the College of the Ontario College of Early Childhood Educators.
