Our programs at Umbrella Templemead provide a variety of experiences for children based on their interests, inquiries, and developing skills.
Educators use the Ministry of Education document “How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years” as a guide in supporting developmentally appropriate practice. Programs are centred around four foundations for optimal learning and healthy development: Belonging, Well-Being, Engagement, and Expression.
I really love the new Storypark app to communicate with parents. It was hard not to be able to come into the building during the pandemic to chat with the teachers about how the day went or see the art/crafts displayed in the classroom. This app has made a world of difference and we are much happier!

We use Storypark to involve you in your child’s learning journey.
Storypark helps your child get the best start in life by personalizing their learning. Relive important moments in a private online community that grows with them over time.
Exploring different ways to paint
The children were invited to use a scrubber, a loofa and a spiked roller to paint with. Each item created a different pattern on their paper! The children got to choose which item they wanted to use. Sometimes they needed to wait for their turn to use the item they wanted, but that was ok — taking turns is important learning too!
How can I enroll my child?
The first step is to visit our online portal and enter your care request. The portal will show you the locations that are closest to your address for the program/age you need for your child.
Subsidy accepted here :)
Families can apply for Child Care Fee Subsidy through the City of Hamilton, which helps with the cost of licensed child care. Families may continue to be responsible for a daily fee, but the amount is based on the individual circumstances of the family.
