Does Your Wooden Treehouse offer outside support for children with special needs? Are you wheelchair accessible?
Yes! We come highly recommended by several great community partners including Children's First, Thames Valley, Talk to Me, and the St. Clair College Campus R.E.C.E. program.
How long have you been in business?
Your Wooden Treehouse began in September 2000 in Belle River; due to such a high demand for services, a second centre was established in Emeryville November 2004.
May I tour either of your facilities?
Absolutely! To be available to meet with you at your convenience we invite you to contact either centre to arrange a visit.
What qualifications do the staff members maintain?
Each centre has a Manager/Supervisor who reports directly to the Director.
Each classroom is led by a Registered Early Childhood Educator and may include experienced assistants or support staff.
Staff engages regularly in ongoing professional learning and applies it to improve their teaching practices. All staff members are First Aid and CPR trained.
What is the child to staff ratios in each room?
In accordance to the "Day Nurseries Act" a Licensed Child Care Centre in Ontario adheres to the following ratios:
Infants 1:3 Toddlers 1:5 Pre-Schoolers 1:8 School-age 1:15
How old does my child have to be to attend Your Wooden Treehouse?
Children must be 3 months to 12 years to attend the centre.
Are there part-time spots available?
Yes, we do allow part time attendance. However, for the benefit of your child a minimum of 2 full days or 3 half days is required per week.
How does Your Wooden Treehouse address allergies or food preferences?
Our Emeryville location is a peanut/nut free centre, no outside food is permitted, with the exception of the infant room. This is the best way to ensure the safety of all children attending. Our Belle River location is not a peanut/nut free centre.
How sick is "too sick," for my child to attend? Are you allotted sick days?
We consider children who have a fever over 101 degrees, vomiting, or diarrhea too sick to attend daycare. The child must be free of symptoms for at least 24 hours before re-attending the centre. Full time children are credited 2 sick days per month.
