Our History in Paris
Established in a Grand River St. North Victorian house, Paris Child Care has been providing quality child care services in Paris, Ontario since 1987. As Paris grew, so did the demand for quality child care and in 1995 an opportunity arose to expand our services. With much work and dedication from the management, staff and Board of Directors, the Holy Family Child Care Centre opened to meet this increasing need.
Our child care programs continued to grow and in 2005, the off-site School Age Programs were initiated to help ensure a safe and happy environment for children before and after school. In March 2009, child care programs for infants, toddlers and preschoolers became available at our Sacred Heart location.
We are a non-profit organization with both of our locations based within schools - Sacred Heart and Holy Family. Although we are located in Catholic schools, we are not affiliated with any denomination and we welcome children from all religious and spiritual backgrounds. We also offer school-age programs at Sacred Heart and Holy Family Schools, Cobblestone and North Ward.
Our focus is on supporting children and their varying interests and learning. Our commitment is to allow your child to experience creativity, social learning and self-discovery. Whether your child is six weeks or twelve years of age, we have a program that will suit their wants and needs perfectly.
