Our before and after school programs at Umbrella Winona 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.
We have really enjoyed the staff. All the staff are professional and caring. I especially like how they follow the students' interests. It is a child-centred program and we love that. The communication is fantastic.

We use Storypark to involve you in your child’s learning journey.
The Storypark app allows educators to communicate with individual families, send messages to groups and share information about children’s daily routines. Most importantly, they can share stories highlighting the incredible play-based learning experiences that children engage in throughout the day.
Boats that float
This week the children were engaged in learning about safety and water play. We started making boats with sponges and skewers and they tested their boats to see if they would sink or float. Each child was asked to make a prediction first, learning more about how their boats reacted to the water in the process.
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.
