Kinderplace Child Care Centre is a non-profit corporation, operated by a volunteer Board of Directors, located in Vance Chapman School. The Centre operates as a workplace child care centre, to serve the employees of Lakehead Public Schools, and families in the community. At present, the Centre can accommodate children from newborn to their 12th year.


Kinderplace strives to provide a warm, caring atmosphere for children and provides quality care in partnership with families. All aspects of a child’s development will be emphasized including social, emotional, creative, cognitive, intellectual and physical.

Curriculum activities include stories, music, special groups, crafts, outdoor play, field trips, science and special visitors individualized for each age group. Parents and families are encouraged to become involved in all aspects of their child’s program at the Centre and are welcome to discuss their child’s needs and development with the staff.
