On Campus Child Care Services
The Community Campus Children's Society Board and Kids on Campus Children's Centre staff would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your children. Our primary goal is to provide a warm, safe and caring environment that enriches children's lives.
Our vision is to create a special place where children and families feel welcomed, respected and appreciated.
We believe that all children are entitled to participate in programs that understand and value childhood. The Society, its employees, programs and services actively work to:
- Respect the rights of children and families in a safe, diverse, inclusive environment that reflects the natural ecosystem of the surrounding area.
- Build supportive, trusting environments with children, parents, college and community.
- Nurture relationships in creative, caring, needs based play learning environments.
- Use open, proactive communication and guiding approaches that respect culture and personal identity.
- Offer resources that support personal and professional development.
- Model lifestyles that promote healthy bodies, minds and spirits.
- Design program experiences that reflect a quality based emergent curriculum.
We employ staff who are qualified Early Childhood educators, Infant Toddler and Special Needs Educators with current First Aid Training and clear criminal record checks. Casual employees also must complete a criminal record check and be certified as Early Childhood Educators and/or have an Assistant Certificate.
Employees use the Early Childhood Educators of BC Code of Ethics, BC Early Learning Framework and ECERS/ITERS rating scales to guide practice, program plan and create safe and healthy age appropriate environments.

When spaces are available, first priority is given to families registered as students at the College of the Rockies, then to employees of the college, and then to families in the community.
