Notice regarding elementary school strike action
For those of you who have been closely following the developments in our Public and Catholic elementary school systems as we have, don't you fear about the upcoming job action!
Thistleoaks will run a special PA Day program for students on days when schools from both Halton Catholic and Public Elementary School Boards are closed due to job action. If you require care for your child on these days, please email Mindy to coordinate care. While priority will be given to our current families, we welcome children from the whole community to attend Thistleoaks on these days.
Our JK/SK Program runs from 6:45am to 6:15pm, and includes hot lunch and two snacks.
Our Grades 1 to 6 School Age program runs from 6:45am to 6:00pm. Children must bring morning snack and lunch; afternoon snack will be provided.
The cost of each program is $55 per child per day.
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.
Contact us to schedule a tour and see for yourself what Thistleoaks can offer you and your family.
A reminder to families that this month January, our billing will change from monthly to bi-weekly. A letter has been sent home reminding you of the change. Please see Mindy or Cheryl if you have any questions!
Our renovations are complete! Our final renovation blog post will take you on a tour around the new toddler playground! A huge thank-you to our families for their patience and understanding during this process - we made it to the finish line!
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!
