Welcome to Thistleoaks!
Located in the heart of Oakville's Kerr Village and close to the Oakville GO Station, Thistleoaks Child Care Centre has been providing the highest quality in child care since its opening in 1989. Our not-for-profit centre focuses on ensuring all children have the opportunity to succeed in programs that focus on active learning through exploration, play, and inquiry. We believe that all children thrive in programs where they and their families are valued as active participants and contributors.
Under the tutelage of an experienced staff of ECEs and child care professionals that embrace the How Does Learning Happen curriculum, we provide full day care for children aged six weeks to 12 years on weekdays between the hours of 6:45am and 6:15pm, longer than most other centres in the area. We also offer a variety of PD Day and summer camps for children in grades 1 through 7. Further, we offer full day kindergarten services as well as before and after school care with transportation to a number of local schools.
Our facility boasts a large, outdoor play area surrounded by greenspace to give a park-like setting with separate play areas and equipment to match the age and abilities of each class. In addition, Thistleoaks has its own peanut-free kitchen and prepares all food in-house daily.

2019 Child Care Receipts are available for pick in the office. If you are in need of your receipt and you no longer attend Thistleoaks, please call 905-842-7303 or email email@example.com to arrange the pick up or delivery of your 2019 child care receipt.
In an effort to be more green and also more efficient, we are experimenting with sending emails to our families instead of printing letters. Our first letter went out this past Friday with the subject "Thistleoaks Children’s Library and Scholastic Book Program". We have heard that some email providers filtered the email as spam, so please ensure you have the email address added to your safe senders list. Monthly invoices are also now going to be automatically emailed and will come from the same address. If you are not receiving these emails, please let us know!
