Kitsilano Area Child Care Society
2041 West 6th Avenue
Vancouver, BC V6J 1R8 (map)


A board of community members founded Kitsilano Area Child Care Society in 1973 and the Centre was opened in 1976. The goal was to create child care spaces in the city. Municipal, provincial, and federal offices supported the project financially. Since that time the staff members and directors have worked hard to bring an exemplary program to the community.

Kitsilano Area Child Care Society owns a modular building on Vancouver-owned land which the Society leases at minimal cost.

Kitsilano Area Child Care Centre is licensed under the Provincial Child Care regulation of the Community Care Facility Act to provide childcare for 25 children aged 30 months to school age entry (grade one). The Society is a non-profit society with Charitable status in good standing.

The volunteer Board of Directors is composed of parents in the membership.


  • Provide a safe, clean, healthy, nurturing, happy, respectful and loving environment for our children and their families.
  • Provide a first rate teaching staff, facility and curriculum in order to promote optimum (advanced) physical, emotional, social, creative and cognitive development for our children.
  • Ensure that every child feels valued, supported, special, confident, and can take pride in our heritage and celebrate out differences.
  • Ensure that each child can work and play successfully both individually and as part of a group.
  • Ensure that every child has respect for themselves, others and the world around them.
  • Ensure that the children learn about discipline through clear guidelines, healthy role modeling, and logical consequences to arrive at the ultimate goals: self-discipline, effective problem solving, and empathy for others. The children will learn to not fear taking responsibility for their actions. They will learn that they have choices.
  • Maintain a working environment for staff which recognizes and respects their education, training, skills, experience and commitment to child care through respectful communication and personnel policies.
