Welcome to Barrhaven Child Care Centre

Barrhaven Child Care Centre

Barrhaven Child Care Centre opened its doors to the community on September 18, 1989. The Centre was designed as a hub model that is linked to the Mary Honeywell School. We are a Licensed, non-profit organization located in Barrhaven, Ottawa. BCCC promotes the health, safety, nutrition and well-being of the children as it operates in compliance with the Ministry of Education, Child Care Quality Assurance and Licensing Office.

With more than 30 years of experience the learning environment and our qualified staff members of BCCC will support each child as an individual, while also supporting them in a group setting.

Our Philosophy ~ At Barrhaven Child Care Centre we believe children are entitled to opportunities that support and encourage their emotional, social, cognitive and physical growth and development. We seek to stimulate and develop children’s creative thinking and problem solving skills through both teacher and child directed activities. We strive to promote a positive self-image for each child by encouraging exploration, fostering the development of social skills, cultivating friendships and promoting a strong sense of community. We support, encourage, and facilitate a co-operative working relationship with parents in order to meet the needs of the children entrusted to our care.

Please note that Barrhaven Child Care Centre is enrolled in the Canada Wide Early Learning and Child Care System (CWELCC)


At Barrhaven Child Care Centre the safety and health of our children, their families and our staff are our top priority. We are committed to supporting them in keeping with provincial and local public health guidance. For more information about our Covid 19 updates and protocols kindly contact our centre.

What Sets Us Apart

At BCCC, we believe that every child is a unique individual; who are competent and curious learners capable of complex thinking. We foster inclusive learning through exploration, play, and inquiry. Our educators are co-leaners with the children, and our environment acts as a third teacher


We promote the physical and emotional well-being of the children by providing a safe environment to each individual child.


We create inclusive environments that ‘act as educators’ where all children including those with Individualized Plans, have positive learning experiences that support their development.

What Our Families Are Saying

The BCCC was a home away from home for our children.  My two daughters attended for 5 years, while attending Mary Honeywell.  I really liked the fact that all meals were homemade and made fresh daily.  The staff support open communication about all subjects and offer diverse activities in an accepting environment.  The BCCC also follows enhanced security protocols offering peace of mind.

It is clear that the staff care, and are committed to our child’s health, learning and safety.

Steve (Jenna and Charlotte)

We have two children at the BCCC: one in the daycare program and one in the extended day program (EDP). We feel incredibly fortunate to be part of the BCCC community and couldn’t imagine our lives without them!

Not only have both my children thrived with this team, but they frequently get mad when I pick them up because they don’t want to leave.


To all the Staff,

For the last 6 years you have all contributed to the development, care and support to both our children. Barrhaven Child Care Centre is like a second home to them both.

We would like to thank all of you, from the bottom of our hearts, for everything over the years.


To all you wonderful BCCC staffs,

Thank you for giving our children a fun and safe summer! You were truly a lifeline this year; helping all of us get back to a sense of normal after a largely virtual year.
