Locations Across Hamilton
We operate full day early learning and child care centres for infant, toddler and preschool children, as well as before and after school programs for kindergarten and school age children. All Umbrella programs are located within Hamilton Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) facilities.
Engaging programs during school breaks
Full day programs for Kindergarten and School Aged children during non-instructional school days offer a variety of experiences that are based on the children’s interests, curiosities, and developing skills. Educators plan daily programming alongside the children based on observations and by engaging with them to learn how best to plan opportunities to meet their needs and interests. These programs may offer field trips or special events depending upon the length of the school break.
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.
Request PA Day Care for the 2022/23 school year
Our online portal is open for requests for PA Day Care. PA Day Programs are offered in select schools. If PA Care is not available in your child’s school, the online portal will offer you a choice of locations where care is available. Children are placed for optional programs on a first-come, first-served basis.
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.
