Serving the parents and children in our community

Our Town realizes the importance of promoting the well-being of our community’s children. We provide a safe, child-centered, caring and nurturing environment that encourages, stimulates and fosters self-esteem and growth.

Bilingual services

Our services are offered both in English and French environments at the Cochrane Child Care Centre and Garde d’enfants de Cochrane, respectively.

Working with special needs

We believe that child care facilities should provide the highest quality of programs for all children. As a result, our qualified resource teachers implement strategies and programs that assist those with special needs.

Hours of operation

Both of our child care centres are open from 7:30am to 5:45pm, Monday through Friday. The centres will be closed for statutory holidays.
