Dalhousie daycare is an incredible daycare and having visited and been a part of several daycares in the city, I can say this is one of the top daycares in Ottawa. The staff are incredibly caring, loving and kind with the children and their families. They work very hard to make sure we are updated on our child’s activities and are extremely receptive to feedback. I was also amazed by the quality of the food provided and the efforts made by the cook to accommodate different allergies. I’ve never seen staff take so much time with families to discuss and address the needs of their children in care. This is the type of place where you never worry about your child’s well being and my little girl thrived in every way at this daycare center. Thank you Dalhousie for all that you do! We are so lucky to have you

We have been pleased with the level of care Dalhousie daycare has provided for our daughter and the time they gave us as soon as we needed. We are very satisfied with the quality of their services and the professionalism. We really appreciate everything they have done for our daughter. The teams (infant and junior toddlers) kept her happily entertained, loved and cared for during each day. They had a positive influence on her growth. Her attitude and skills have improved, has learnt a lot of things because of them, and she received all attention she needed. They are a fantastic daycare team! We will miss this daycare. Finally, we highly recommend this daycare, they will provide your children with everything they need, due to their patience and the love for their job.

The Dalhousie Parents' Daycare has provided us with more than just childcare for both our children, they have become a valued member of our family. The staff truly care about the current and future well being of all the children in their care. From hugs and smiles to organized day trips it's obvious how skilled and loving they are all.

M and I wish to thank you for all the love, care, education and experiences that J received from his educators and support staff at Dalhousie.
J would come back home and talk nice things about his educators and we could feel the love he has for them. Listening to Jname the names Alex, Carling, Colini, Grace, Kerrie, Mary, Patrick are some of the names etched in our minds.
You all have a special place in our hearts.

Now that Ruby has moved on to Sr. Toddler, I just wanted to say that:
The Jr. toddler team (Heather, Caline, Jessie, Vern) are a lovely bunch of people that made our daughters’ transition to Dalhousie very easy. She talked about them regularly (and still does) and I can tell she really enjoyed being in their class. We also really enjoyed the regular and detailed updates from the team, as well as the captions that went along with the photos. You have a really great team there and we are happy that she got to be a part of it.

My daughter started with Dalhousie as a preschooler in September last year and we couldn't be happier! We have seen a positive change in her development, she looks forward to going to daycare every day and genuinely loves her caregivers. Dalhousie has a long history of providing quality care, something you can detect as soon as you walk down its hallways and through every interaction with caregivers. The food is made on site every day is delicious (I've had it!) and parents are kept involved every step of the way. Would highly recommend to any parent looking for peace of mind and a positive childcare experience!

Dalhousie Parents Daycare, has been part of our family for 2 years and ½ now, and my daughter had a hard time leaving mommy for the longest time (and mommy had a hard time as well), but each and every time I walked out of her room, I knew she had wonderful caregivers and educators that would care for her and provide her with the comfort and security she needed. Now a days when I come to pick her up at the end of the day, I cannot get her to leave; she has made friendships with other kids, and created bonds with her educators and is continually learning. Seeing her so happy and confident on herself makes me so proud of her and so grateful that I chose Dalhousie Parents as a daycare provider. I thank one and every member at Dalhousie Parents Daycare for being open, loving and professional on you work. I surely encourage other parents to make Dalhousie Parents your daycare of choice.
September 14, 2015 I can’t speak for every parent. I only know for sure what my husband and I want for our kids. We want them to feel secure, even when we can’t be there every minute to provide the reassurance. We want them to feel the joy of discovery, even if we can’t be there every minute to teach them. We want them to feel comfortable with others, even if we can’t be there every minute to help create the bond. We want them to thrive, even if we can’t be there every minute to meet their needs. We want them to know that we will give them all of those things in the many minutes we are with them – and that there are others who can give them the same in the minutes we are away.
In short, we want our kids to know that in the absence of their number one family, there is another one as dedicated to them as we are.
If what you want for your kids is anything like what we want, I can tell you with 100% certainty that those wants will be easily met at this daycare. You will never find a more encouraging, nurturing, supportive, progressive and child-centered group of professionals than the teachers and support staff at Dalhousie Parents’ Daycare.
Because it’s not just a daycare - it’s a loving and supportive family.
And who better to care for your children than family?
August 8th, 2012 Our family is extremely pleased with the care and programs that are provided by this centre, our grandchild has attended this centre since she was a baby and her personal development and skills are excellent. She has great self-esteem and has had the opportunity to meet other children to assist her in sharing and working in group activities.
