Scallywags Childcare is a licensed, family child care facility located on the lower floor of our home. There are many opportunities for children to choose activities and play stations that interest them - dress up, trains and cars, the kitchen centre, tools, puzzles and colouring, Little People, pirate ships, play house, slides, Paw Patrol and so much more!


There is a large, fully fenced yard to play in complete with climbers, slides, water table, and many outdoor toys. We spend time outside almost every day. During warm weather, we spend a large portion of the day outside. We also go for walks to playgrounds to play.


We believe children learn best through play and thrive under a steady routine. Our program is designed to teach children age appropriate skills and concepts through play based learning.


We do circle and calendar time, singing, crafts, sensory bins and various activities to encourage motor skills. Some of the areas we focus on are letter and number recognition, name recognition, counting to 20 and learning the alphabet. 


We also have two friendly cats who like to come spend time in the playroom, much to the delight of the children.


All staff have completed required training to be eligible for licensing and continue to further our education through multiple workshops during the year. We have a current first aid certificate and are registered with the Chilliwack Childcare Resource and Referral office. Criminal record checks are updated as required.

 



About Us

Our Philosophy

F.A.Q.

Scallywags Childcare

Every child is unique and we believe that success and growth come from encouragement and praise. We focus on building every child's self esteem and confidence through positive feedback and rewards. We nurture their natural strengths. A child sees the world around them with wonder and awe and we believe in encouraging their natural curiosity.

1. Do you take the affordable child care benefit(ACCB)?

You are required to pay the difference between the monthly fee and the amount the affordable child care benefit pays.
