JOIN OUR PAC
Here at Lil' Alpacas Childcare, we believe that every child is deserving of the best care. We made sure that our program could be adaptable to meet the needs of each and every child in our centre, and keep a flexible schedule for our classrooms so that our teachers can make the changes that they feel will benefit their group best. We believe that each and every person deserves to be treated with respect and kindness. We are an inclusive centre, with wheelchair accessible washrooms, playground, and classrooms.
