About Alderbuds

Choosing a child care program for your child is a very important decision, and we are pleased that you are interested in learning more about our centre.

Alderbuds Child Care Centre opened in 1989. We are proud to have been providing care to children in our community for more than 25 years.

Our Mission

To provide high-quality child care in an inclusive, non-discriminatory, healthy and safe learning environment that fosters overall development and supports children’s individual needs and abilities, by working collaboratively with families and employing a professional team of responsive Early Childhood Educators.


Our Philosophy

We believe that child development is driven by positive experiences and stimulation, and that the first five years of a child’s life are the most influential to their overall development. Alderbuds offers an inclusive program and is committed to providing your child with high-quality care, ensuring that each child is safe, loved and encouraged to develop physically, socially, intellectually and emotionally.

Our centre is equipped with toys and materials that are age appropriate to your child. Children are encouraged to develop their skills and to solve problems with others. We recognize that laughter, hugs and sharing are fundamental to a child’s experiences, and they are an important part of what we offer children.

We encourage you to participate as an active partner in your child’s experiences at Alderbuds. We are happy to answer any questions you have or speak with you about your child’s development.


Board of Directors

As a not-for-profit child care centre, Alderbuds is led by an elected Board of Directors. The Board holds meetings on a monthly basis, and discusses and makes decisions on issues including financial management, amendments to policies and procedures and overall operation of the centre. In keeping with our centre’s bylaws, the majority of Board members are parents of a child or children who are attending the centre, and all Board members are volunteers.


Alderbuds is a not-for-profit agency and a registered charity. We accept cash donations or donations of goods and services that are useful for our programs and operations. All donations of $10 or more are eligible for a charitable tax receipt.
