27 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.
Children in our School Age programs are developing important cognitive and social skills that will help them transition from childhood into adolescence. Educators view themselves as co-learners, collaborating and researching alongside the children to offer experiences and provide materials to allow them to explore, solve problems, and test theories.
Our daughter has loved attending Umbrella for the last two years. It has provided a regular opportunity for social, self-directed play which has been extremely important for her development. Thank you very much.

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.
