About Us

We believe family members are the most important people in a child’s life. We work in partnership with the family to respect their needs and wishes. Our center supports diversity, uniqueness and the inclusion of all children to promote healthy development and a strong sense of self through learning independence, cooperation and communication. Our programs are designed to facilitate this by setting up our environment in such a way that children are able to be successful in these areas.

The acquisition of healthy habits is highly valued at New Beginnings in relation to safety, good nutrition, cleanliness, fresh air, exercise and rest.

Our staff are experienced and highly qualified, meeting and exceeding all requirements set by ‘Interior Health’. Working as a team, we provide a nurturing, safe, loving and educational environment for your child to learn and grow in. With open communication and an environment that parents are welcome to participate in, it is our commitment to you that we provide the best alternative care available for your children.

At New Beginnings we have over seventy children enrolled in our Preschool, Daycare, and After-School Care Programs. Our goal is to promote individualism and respectful relationships among the children through positive interactions with others. Our belief is that positive adult modeling and the freedom to explore and discover their world within well-defined boundaries are key to each child’s success.
