About Us

*BIG NEWS!*
We are excited to officially announce that RCC will be transitioning from infant & child care to before & after school this fall.

Our local school is Ecole Grosvenor Wentworth Park School. EGWPS is a 10 minute walk from RCC, which is located in our home in the Wedgewood subdivision.

For everyone on our infant/child care Wait List, feel free to send us an email if you would like suggestions on other facilities in the area!

To all current RCC families and alumni, thank you for your continued love & support over the past six years. It’s been a wild ride and I can’t imagine having done it with anyone else! xo

Please spread the word about our new before & after school program, starting September 2017. For more info, drop us a line: info@rockinghamchildcare.ca

 

Rockingham Child Care is conveniently located in the Rockingham/Wedgewood/Clayton Park area of Halifax. Our in-home daycare space includes a separate entrance and locker room, generous sized playroom, quiet play & nap room, child-friendly bathroom and private outdoor play space.

The philosophy of Rockingham Child Care is simple: provide a loving “home away from home” for your child. We offer a nurturing, caring environment where children learn through both free play and structured programming (circle time, reading, dress-up, arts & crafts, music).  Every day, the children are given multiple opportunities to develop emotionally, socially, physically and intellectually. We also have a growing list of extra-curricular activities, which currently include yoga and music classes.

At Rockingham Child Care, our daily goal is to provide the total “home away from home” experience, including:

  • Nurturing and loving attention
  • Respectful and consistent schedule for eating, sleeping and playing
  • Safe and rich environment to grow and learn in
  • Open door policy

At present, Rockingham Child Care caters to children between the ages of 18 months and 4 years; however, accommodations for children younger than 18 months may be considered. Please contact us for further information.

Our hours of operation are:

Monday – Friday, 8am – 5pm

There is no extra charge if you will be a little early or late; however, arrangements must be made in advance.

Parent Testimonials

* “Today I built a tent city with my friends and then we defended it from a giant water monster!” …at least that is what our 18 month old would probably be saying if he could talk! He is so happy each time we pick him up, it is obvious that his days are filled with fun and adventure. It also makes the evenings easy…apparently even toddlers can run out of energy! Even us parents get to share in the adventure! Lindsay loves to capture the best moments of each day on camera and then share them via Facebook or text. We believe her previous occupation must have been a fortune teller as she seems to sense when you most need a distraction from the stress of work! We have come to the conclusion that Rockingham Child Care must run on magic and be staffed with elves. It does not seem possible that it could run as well as it does without these things. A happy child results in happy parents…and we could not be happier. (Mom & Dad of Tristan)

* My girls were always excited to spend the day at RCC. I know this was because they felt happy, secure, and relaxed with Lindsay. They always had plenty of outdoor time, and each day included crafts and different fun activities. I know that my girls felt at home at Lindsay’s. We can’t say enough good things about RCC! (Mom of Heidi & Scarlett)

* As a first-time parents, we found searching for a place for our son to be a bit overwhelming until we found Rockingham Child Care. It was more than just a daycare for our son; it was a second home. Lindsay provides a warm and homey environment for children to grow and learn. She has such a positive energy and goes out of her way to make each child feel special. Our son is somewhere else now, but asks regularly to go see Lindsay. We can’t imagine a better place for a child to spend their time! (Mom & Dad of Lauchlan)

* My husband and I couldn’t be happier that our son’s first childcare experience has been at RCC. Lindsay was so wonderful helping us all with the transition, she is patient, kind and always fantastic with the kids. She has a great setup in her home – it’s inviting, clean, organized, and from our son’s perspective it’s tons of fun! Now on the days our son doesn’t go all he talks about is going to daycare to be with Lindsay and the other children! (Mom of Noah B.)

* Rockingham Child Care is a wonderful environment for our children. I personally am very picky when it comes to who takes care of our children when I am unable to and I can easily say that I feel 100% at ease when our two children are with Lindsay. She is nurturing and caring. She engages with and enjoys all of the children in her care as if they were her own, all while being consistent and respectful of the discipline techniques we use in our house. Located in a safe and quiet neighbourhood, the physical space of Rockingham Child Care is one of the best I’ve seen – clean, VERY bright, ample supply of toys and activities (educational and fun), spacious. Lindsay ensures the children have outside play every day, adapting activities depending on the weather.

* RCC has a very open door policy – from photos being sent via text throughout the day, to being easily accessible via email/phone/Facebook. I always feel welcome to stay a bit longer at drop-off if needed or at pick-up to chat to find out how the day went. The only struggle I have ever had with our experience is trying to get our kids to leave at the end of a fun-filled day! I would highly recommend Rockingham Child Care if you are in need of childcare. (Mom of Liam & Ava)

* Noah most mornings brings me my keys and jacket, stands by the door and waits to go to daycare. RCC isn’t just a daycare it is more of a second home for Noah and he absolutely loves it. As parents we want our children to feel secure, safe and happy… and that is exactly what RCC provides, a secure, safe and happy environment. Noah adores Lindsay and absolutely loves all of his friends that he gets to see everyday. Lindsay is energetic, fun loving, patient, creative (the list goes on) and all of this is displayed in the activities she does with the kids. The highlight of my day is when Lindsay sends pictures so I am sure not miss any of Noah’s special moments. Noah and I are so happy to be apart of the RCC family 🙂 (Mom of Noah M.)
