Biidaaban Children's Centre



The Biidaaban Children’s Centre is located at 41-8th Avenue attached to the Sacred Heart School.  The Biidaaban Children’s Centre has been in operation since 1994.  The Centre is licensed to accommodate 53 children between the ages of 2.5 years and 10 years of age.  This program is divided up into three different age groups. 


The preschool program is licensed for 16 children.  A team of two qualified Registered Early Childhood Educators lead this group with a focus on the children’s interests.  Children are naturally curious and this will lead to a number of teachable moments.  An Emergent curriculum is used and staff follow the children’s lead and base their programming on the children’s interests.  Children will develop emotionally, socially, physically and cognitively through playful, hands-on experiences and meaningful interactions both indoors and outdoors.


The before and after school programs provides a seamless day for families.  Parents can drop off their children before school where children will be greeted by one of the daycare educators and provided with a warm and welcoming environment.  Children have the opportunity to engage in play based learning and also are able to share in a nutritious snack before school.  The transition to school is a smooth one with kindergarten classes being right down the hall from daycare.

The after school kindergarten program is operated out of one of the three licensed kindergarten room and is licensed for 22 children.  The children are met by two registered early childhood educators that are responsible for the after-school programs. They plan a play-based program that is connected to the learning that will happen during the regular school day. The program includes a mix of exploration, guided and independent activities, quiet times and outdoor play.

School Aged Programs

The School aged program is licensed for 15 children between the ages of 6 – 10 and is located within the daycare space.  Children are met by one educator that focuses on positive peer interactions fostered through leisurely activities.  Children arrive to a homelike atmosphere that provides snacks, homework help, group interactions, individual play and both indoor and outdoor recreation games.
