SMILES Childcare

SMILES (Small Multicultural Immigrants Learning Early Strategies), provides quality childcare for immigrant and refugee children aged six months to six years.  The program is offered in conjunction with other CIWA programs to provide early childhood development and life-long learning opportunities for children while their mothers attend other CIWA programs. Qualified SMILES childcare workers provide children with culturally sensitive, age-appropriate developmental activities via a play-based curriculum to increase their school-readiness. Ultimately, the goal is to provide children with the tools needed to succeed in the mainstream Canadian school system.
