From Dedicated Educators
Welcome to 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.

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.
We encourage positive and supportive relationships among the children, their families and the staff, through an ongoing positive and supportive reciprocal communication.
Nutritional meals are provided daily on site and we ensure that all our meals and snacks meet the highest nutritional value.
