Sarah found the perfect child care at our Yonge & Sheppard Centre

Toronto is the fastest growing city in North America. But ensuring quality child care grows at the same rate is a problem. At The Neighbourhood Group, we strive to keep pace with the growing need. In the last few years, we opened three additional child care locations: Canoe Landing, Our Lady of Lourdes, and our latest, at the Yonge & Sheppard Centre. Quality child care is essential for developmental growth of children, parents’ peace of mind, and for the economy by maintaining the workforce.

Our vibrant Yonge & Sheppard Child Care Centre serves the rapid expansion in Willowdale. Helping parents with infants, toddlers and preschoolers, the Centre is conveniently located on the subway line, making it easy for working parents who commute. But for Sarah, it’s the staff that are key.

“My four-year-old daughter, Charlee, has attended Yonge & Sheppard since it opened, and it’s been wonderful on all fronts. The dedicated staff and director have been amazing. They are warm, compassionate and very hard working. You can tell they genuinely care for each and every child, which is extremely important as a parent.

“During COVID-19, the Centre has been diligently following the regulations and guidelines from Toronto Public Health. As a parent of a high-risk child, that makes me feel comfortable sending her five days a week.

“The Yonge & Sheppard Child Care Centre is hands down the best childcare in the area. I’d recommend it to any family who is looking for wonderful child care!”
