The Municipality of Sioux Lookout operates two (2) licensed Child Care Centres. The Biidaaban Children's Centre and the Sioux Mountain Children's Centre for a total of one hundred and forty-seven (147) spaces. Each site offers child care for toddler, preschool, kindergarten and school-aged children. Biidaaban Children's Centre is located at the Sacred Heart School at 41-8th Avenue and the Sioux Mountain Children's Centre is located in Sioux Mountain Public School at 89 - 1st Avenue. 

The Sioux Lookout Municipal Child Care Centres are supported by the Day Care Advisory Committee which is a committee of council. This committee is comprised of members of the public as well as one council member that have a vested interest in the Municipal Child Care Centres.  

The Sioux Lookout Municipal Child Care Centres are dedicated to providing a healthy, supportive, stimulating and all-inclusive environment for young children and their families. Our programs focus on an inquiry play based approach where educators are co-learners and co-constructors with the children. This approach offers all children the opportunity to actively explore both the indoor and outdoor environments where they are offered challenging and stimulating experiences and can safely engage in risk-taking within the scope of their ability while being supported by Registered Early Childhood Educators as well as support staff, volunteers or students.  

On September 17, 2021, the Municipality of Sioux Lookout announced that we had entered into an agreement the Kenora District Services Board ("KDSB") to transfer operations of child care services from the Municipality to the KDSB. This was to take effect on January 1, 2022. On November 19, 2021, we announced that there had been delays to the transfer and the Municipality would continue operating child care in Sioux Lookout into the first quarter of 2022. There will no no disruption of services to our residents.
