Welcome to the Frontenac County Childcare Centre. We strive to provide the highest quality child care and positive experiences for all of our families.
Our program relies on the expertise of caring, warm and knowledgeable Registered Early Childhood Educators. It is their role to offer each child an opportunity to develop to the fullest potential in a safe and secure environment. By interacting with and observing the children our staff are able to plan for play based activities that are not only age appropriate but also of interest to the children. It is our belief that this will lay the foundation for success in lifelong learning. Through the essential partnerships with families, host schools and the community, we endeavor to create a cooperative spirit in our future citizens who appreciate the diversity of our community.
In April 1987, the Frontenac County Board of Education (currently called the Limestone District School Board) directed its staff to develop a position regarding the governance and operations of the childcare centres which operated in Board of Education sites. A child care committee was set up comprising of F.C.B.E. staff, community childcare personnel and interested community members. At that time the F.C.B.E. operated 3 pre-school centres which were housed in Sydenham High School (now housed in Loughborough Public School), Q.E.C.V.I., and L.C.V.I. A directive from the Ministry of Education forced the F.C.B.E. to begin a process of transferring the governance of these centres to an independent community Board of Directors. This process was begun in June 1988, and was completed in September 1988, when the Frontenac County Childcare Centre received its Letters Patent from the Ministry of Corporate and Consumer Affairs of Canada.
The Frontenac County Childcare Centre has since expanded its services to include an additional pre-school site at Lancaster Drive Public School as well as before and after school care in area elementary schools. As of 2012 FCCC entered into a third party agreement with the LDSB to provide Full Day Kindergarten extended day services.
