Bay Park is connected to a licensed day care facility that runs from 7:30 am – 5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.
In keeping with the church’s vision statement to boldly engage our community, and communities, the day care Centre comes alongside Bay Park and serves the very same community, and communities, by opening its doors to everyone requiring child care and attempting to speak God’s Truths into the lives of the children and their families through actions and words..
“And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father” Colossians 3:17 (NLT)
Bay Park Children’s Centre has qualified, dedicated staff with exceptionally high standards. As in most licensed child care settings a great deal of importance is placed on children’s physical, social, emotional and cognitive development. The Centre not only focuses on these areas but on the child as a whole through a genuine, caring, family atmosphere. For many of the staff, that caring atmosphere is rooted in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. They work diligently at demonstrating His example each day through unconditional love and acceptance, modeling positive moral behaviours, loving children with exceptionalities and going above and beyond the role of an ECE with encouraging words, prayer and support.
The Centre also strives to plant the seeds of God’s loving grace into the lives of its member children and families through Bible Story Time every Tuesday morning from October thru May. Currently, Mrs. Gillian Mauger volunteers her time and energy to ensure these little ones know how much God loves them.
To alleviate pressures from the recent changes to the Ontario full-day kindergarten program, the Centre opened an infant room in August 2014! This provides an opportunity to reach a great need in the community.
The Centre’s four classrooms consist of: the Bunnies Infant Room (10 children and 4 staff), the Busy Bee’s Toddler Room (15 children and three staff), the Cool Crocodudes Toddler/Preschool Room (15 children and 3 staff OR 16 children and 2 staff) and the Fireflies Preschool Room (16 children and 2 staff)
