Thursday & Friday Winter Holiday Program (December 27 & 28)

Here’s more information about the great program we have planned, and to assist your attendance. 

(Please remember to pack a nut free lunch.)


Waterdown District Children’s Centre
215 Parkside Drive

(through the daycare playground attached to the right side of the High School)
Program tel: (905) 689-5342
(please call this number with any abscences as we are not monitoring emails over the holidays)

Main Hours: 9am – 4pm
Extended Program (included in fee): 7am – 9am, 4pm-6pm

Extended hours (and healthy snacks) are ALWAYS included in your original program fee.

Entrances: When dropping off or picking up your children, enter through the WDCC Children’s Playground. Please ring the bell if the doors are locked.

Children may not be dropped off for entrance on their own.

Check-in / check-out: All children must be checked in and out by their parent/guardian or a pre-authorized caregiver (recorded in your registration or given to our administration in advance in writing). All caregivers picking up will be asked to show us picture ID to confirm identity.

Parking: Please use one of the school’s parking spaces if the daycare drop-off spots are full. Do not park, stop or idle beside the school or playground entrance or in the bus / fire lanes as this is not permitted and creates a safety concern.

Running late or absent?
If you are going to be later than 9am or absent, call 905-689-5342
(NO EMAILS PLEASE). We start call families at 9:30am for any child absent without notice, as per our safe arrival policy.

PLEASE CALL US AT (905) 689-5342 if you cannot find our program, or have any questions or concerns during the day.


Thursday, December 27: Hot Cocoa and Chill
What could be better then hot chocolate and relaxing? That’s right…nothing! Take a break from the cold winter snow and cozy up with a blanket and a hot cup of cocoa. Today’s cozy activities include researching and experimenting with chocolate, snowman sensory classes, creating gourmet hot chocolate and participating in our mindful Minecraft games. Keep in mind children can bring their electronic devices (tablets, phones iPads, etc.) but will not be using them all day. For those children without electronics there will be many engaging activities and games to play and some iPads available for fun research about cocoa and making desserts.

Friday, December 28: Pajama Day
It’s too AM for this!! Tired of waking up early to fix your hair and change your clothes? Well …. today is the perfect day for you! Stay comfy and cozy all day in your pajamas and bring your favorite pillow to cuddle with. Today our campers will be creating their own dream catchers, making pajama fabric monsters, and watching and snuggling up for a movie with their friends. A fun activity includes become donut café designers as children get to bake and decorate their own donuts.

Friday is a NO electronics day please.


This main program starts at 9am and ends at 4pm. Morning extended care begins at 7am and includes a continental snack. Afternoon extended care is from 4-6pm and includes a snack for your children. *Extended care is already included in your daily fee.



Be sure to pack your children with a lunch (it must be peanut, tree nut, and sesame free), and two small extra snacks for nibbling mid-day, water bottle, comfortable indoor running shoes, spare clothes, and outer clothes appropriate for the weather.
