About Us

Thank you for your interest in Blue Elephant Daycare. We have successfully been operating a high quality program for children aged eighteen months to five years. We are licensed by the Ministry of Education and governed by the Day Nursery Act. Our license capacity is 44 children.

We are pleased to announce that we are participating in "Raising the Bar" in Early Childhood Education. This is a voluntary accreditation program for licensed child care programs. We have completed the bronze, silver and gold level. We are currently in our Gold Maintenance level. For more information on this initiative, you can contact The Region of Peel by emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

We offer a full day program that provides children with enjoyment, rewarding experience and a feeling of self worth and independence. Children are given freedom to make choices while learning to accept the limits and respect each other. Children work and play together in an atmosphere that promotes co-operation, celebrating differences and accepting similarities. Parents can be rest assured that their child is left in a safe and happy environment.

We provide high-quality care and education that is built on a foundation of co-operation and trust that leads to mutually rewarding relationships involving children, parents and teachers. When such relationships are developed, children are likely to be well adjusted and have a strong sense of their own value and self-worth. We follow the “Play Based Learning” curriculum that is also endorsed by the School Board. Today’s Play….Tomorrow’s Success!

We have also developed a parent handbook about the daycare and the various policies and procedures that have been developed to ensure the safety and well-being of your child. You will receive the log in password to obtain a copy of this handbook on our website under parent log once your child is registered in the program. If you are interested in admitting your child to our program and would like further information, please feel free to arrange for a tour of our facility. You will be provided with basic information and we would gladly answer any questions you may have on our program. All information remains confidential. Under the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, the personal information collected in the application form is solely used for gaining more information on the child when in the care of the Daycare. It is important in emergencies purposes for staff to contact parents. No personal information is disclosed without the consent of the parent.
