Burlington and Oakville Child Care in a Supportive & Nurturing Environment
To be a responsive community leader offering a quality early learning and child care program through a unique curriculum that supports the growth, development and well-being of children in a safe environment. This is achieved through a dedicated and qualified team that ensures a family and community focused environment.
Parkview Children’s Centre first opened its doors in 1985 in a quaint red-brick home on Lakeshore Road in Burlington as a Burlington daycare. Our goal was clear. Provide nurturing child care to pre-school age children that encourages their engagement with nature, while fostering creativity and the will to explore. Thirty-three years later, we have evolved to three blossoming child care centres in the Halton region. Modern, light-filled spaces, our centres are established keeping in mind the acclaimed Reggio Emilia approach to early education. This Italian tradition dating back half a century serves as our foundational philosophy and has cemented us as a pillar of our communities.
Parkview Children’s Centre offers pre-school programs for infants and children up to age four. We also offer a before and after school program for elementary school students (aged 4-12) at St. Gregory in Oakville. We have always kept our hours as convenient as possible to accommodate the busy schedules of working parents and are open from 7:00AM to 6:00PM Monday through Friday. In addition to weekly preschool throughout the year, Parkview also provides school age programs during school holidays like Winter and March Break as well as summer camps in July and August so that your children are always looked after. We provide Halton daycare you can rely on year-round. Parkview Children’s Centre has peppered the community with three locations spread-out around the Halton region to meet the educational needs of as many children as possible. Our learning centres are visually stimulating, light-filled spaces decorated with calming, natural colours. Parents and children alike feel completely welcome and comfortable as soon as they set foot inside our Halton daycare. Our educational approach sees students learning on their feet, using their hands, and communicating their thoughts and ideas through various media. We often see children making artwork out of natural materials found in the earth. Visual and tactile stimulation motivate a child’s deep engagement with their surroundings making for a rich and rewarding early education. We pride ourselves in being an inclusive Halton daycare and welcome all students, including those with differing abilities and developmental needs. In these instances, our School Director will meet with the parents during their initial tour, through the registration period and during the child care experience. This open communication between parents and the School Director ensure the child has the correct supports to meet their specific needs. Parkview Children’s Centre uses the Reggio Emilia Approach to early education which originated in Northern Italy over half a century ago.

Our facilities are regularly inspected by government officials from the Ministry of Education. The Program Advisors are observing a number of areas including teacher-child interactions, health & safety practices, and curriculum. The Ministry of Education (EDU) has guidelines all child care centres must follow. This is called “How Does Learning Happen?” and suggests that children learn best when foundations of Belonging, Well-Being, Expression, and Engagement are present. We take pride in the fact that we have always met or often exceeded industry standards, and continue to showcase these four foundations in all of our daycare classrooms.
Parkview is a fully licensed non-profit organization providing child care Burlington and Oakville can always rely on. All proceeds are reinvested back into the school and its programs for equipment, facility improvements and curriculum support materials. This makes the child care Burlington and Oakville children receive the absolute best.
