Junior Citizens Day Care

Junior Citizens Daycare is a licensed child care centre that is owned and operated by the City of Greater Sudbury, offering 40 years of quality child care services.

Our Mission and Values

We provide service to children with confidentiality, empathy, dignity and respect in a safe, warm and caring environment.

The programs promote the total development of each individual child through consistent, guided learning activities in the six dimensions of wellness.

These dimensions are: physical, social, cognitive, emotional, occupational and spiritual.

 

We believe:

  • that the atmosphere of the centre must be warm, friendly and cheerful

  • that a healthy and safe environment is conducive to learning and development for both child and staff

  • in being flexible to meet parents' needs for education and employment

  • that children learn through play

  • that each child and his/her family have the right to privacy and confidentiality

  • in inclusive care for all, regardless of abilities, race, creed or financial status

  • in care that encompasses the physical, social, emotional, intellectual, occupational and spiritual needs of each child to promote life long skills

  • that continuing professional development of staff is vital to meeting the ever changing needs of children and their families

  • that staff teach and encourage children to function at the best of their abilities, valuing the uniqueness of each child

  • that appropriate, positive intervention is necessary so that children learn to accept the consequence for their actions

  • that daily routines are necessary so that children acquire life long skills

  • that free play (unstructured learning activities) is necessary so that children learn to make choices for themselves within boundaries laid out by an adult.
