Dartmouth Day Care Centre was created from a shared vision to create a quality program for families and children in the East Dartmouth area. We were incorporated in 1974 and settled into the basement of St. Luke’s Anglican Church on Veterans Avenue. We started out small with an enrolment of 30 children. In 1987, due to an increased need for childcare in the central Dartmouth area, we expanded to 33 Crichton Avenue. After successfully expanding and operating two full-time childcare programs, the Board of Directors for Dartmouth Day Care Centre approved the movement of the St. Luke’s program to 28 Caledonia Road in 1990. Currently, Dartmouth Day Care Centre provides quality childcare to more than 100 families in the East and Central Dartmouth areas. In 2014, we proudly celebrated 40 years of service to our communities and thank all those involved in helping build a successful organization.
Our Centre is dedicated to providing a high-quality inclusive early childhood education program that includes diversity, cultural respect for community and a holistic framework to support a nurturing environment for all children to reach their full potential.
