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 Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014. Our license capacity is 44 children.

Blue Elephant Daycare participates in Raising the Bar in Peel. The 2017 Adaptation of Raising the Bar in Peel engages child care and early years professionals in ongoing reflection and critical thinking to enhance quality in the programs. This 2017 Adaptation fosters relationship-building and is based upon the following foundations: Lifelong Learning, Reflective Educators, Mentorship, Leadership, Collaborative Inquiry

Our staff are committed to providing a high quality, caring and professional environment for your child.

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!
