Rocky Forest Daycare

The Rocky Forest Daycare is a fully licensed, pre-accredited daycare facility. On-site at our Home Next Door, our daycare is able to accommodate up to 33 children, ages three months to Kindergarten. The majority of our children are toddler and preschool aged.

WINGS puts children first

The Rocky Forest Daycare is a Reggio Emilia-inspired, child-centered and child-focused daycare.

Our early learning programs are carefully planned to tap into children’s expressed interests and fully engage their imaginations in our daily activities.

To support our children in their growth and development in all areas, the Rocky Forest Daycare is partnered with Genesis Early Learning, drawing on the resources of a valuable team of Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists and Behavioural Therapists.

We prepare and provide a Canada Food Guide approved morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack for our children.

A lovely outside play space is accessed year round, providing children with plenty of fresh air and physical activity.

We look forward to meeting you and working with you and your family at the Rocky Forest Daycare!

What is a Reggio Emilia approach to early learning?

The Reggio Emilia approach to teaching young children puts the natural development of children as well as the close relationships that they share with their environment at the centre of its philosophy.

At the Rocky Forest Daycare, we utilize natural objects and found materials in our classroom as much as possible, to teach our children about different ways to be creative within their environment.

Women's Voices

"Being able to get into WINGS changed my life and my son’s life too. We are safe from my ex-spouse. I have learned to heal and grow. I have learned to let go of things I can’t change. I have learned to forgive myself and my ex. I have grown stronger. WINGS is a life saver for me.

The counsellors are great and very helpful. I look forward to going to group; to know you are not alone and that other women have been in similar situations. My son loves daycare; all the other kids to play with and develop friendships.

The province really needs programs like this and more of them. The shelters are full. It is easy to say, not my problem - until it happens to you or someone you know, like your Mom, Aunt, Niece, Sister, or Friend. It is devastating to families and we all need help up."
