Quality programs

At Umbrella we offer families inclusive, quality, licensed child care programs. All of our programs provide environments where children can engage and explore in play-based learning at their own pace and following their natural curiosity. Program experiences for children are based upon Ontario’s pedagogical approaches for the early years. The four foundations of our provincial pedagogy ensure that each child feels a strong sense of belonging and well-being and that they are able to fully engage and express themselves.
