Drop-ins & Respite
The Thrive Childcare Centre ONLY offers respite and drop-in child care for participants of Thrive’s programs. We know self care is essential for parents who are overwhelmed or overcoming challenging circumstances.
Weekly respite and pre-scheduled drop-in child care is available for parents who are participating in Thrive programs. Drop-in spots are scheduled for parents prior to attending Thrive programs. Respite is for regularly scheduled caregiving, full days, based on need or referral.
Priority is given to parents participating in counselling, programs or workshops.
Care is provided for children 2 to 5 years of age.
NOTE: This service is not available for a one-time drop-in or for an occasional appointment.
A child registration form needs to be completely filled out with all medical information including medical number and your child’s pediatrician name, address and phone number. Our child care staff must be able to reach parents by telephone in case of emergencies. It is preferred to schedule a shorter first time visit (with the parent available to be called if needed).
