P.L.A.Y.(Parents Looking after Youth) Community Child Development Centre (P.L.A.Y.) was established to provide high-quality childcare services for children from birth to six (6) years of age. We are a not-for-profit childcare centre that is spiritually, emotionally and physically rich; and inclusive of all regardless of economic status, gender, ability, race or age. Our goal is to create a standard of excellence in childcare, providing programs that meet the diverse needs of the community.
- OUR HISTORY
P.L.A.Y. was established by parents in 1973. It was funded by a local incentive grant to provide quality care for children in the Hillhurst-Sunnyside area.
- OUR PHILOSOPHY
Our philosophy is to provide an environment that is safe, secure and supportive of children’s developmental needs. We believe in providing a positive, nurturing environment that will encourage creativity, intellectual curiosity, social interactions, self-help skills, physical activity and emotional development for children. We provide age-appropriate programming that meets the developmental needs of the children.
- WHO YOU ARE:
Due to our size, working at PLAY is like joining a family. Our team is close-knit, and our parent community is made up of families who have been at PLAY for several years. Finding a volunteer who is the right fit and shares our values is extremely important to us. This means that you’ll need to be: flexible, open-minded, hard-working, take initiative, and enjoy working in a small team.
