Children 6 months to 6 years of age

Working with the Rosalind Blauer Centre for Child Care, Brock University will have licensed staff available during Congress 2014 for the child minding service.  Staffing levels will be maintained based on age group ratios of the children who are pre-registered. As such, drop-in service will not be available. Age appropriate programming will be implemented each day, along with nutritious snacks and lunches. We are working with the Rosalind Blauer Centre for Child Care in creating the programming and what a “typical day” would look like for your child(ren) and hope to have that information available soon.
