How it Works

At Budding Children’s Garden & Daycare, we offer up to 40 hours per month of licensed, flexible care for children 18 mo. to kindergarten and a Before and After School program for elementary school kids aged 5 – 12 years.

Registration, booking, and payment are all online, and you can choose your times with as little as one hour’s notice.

The centre is open from Monday to Fridays, 8am – 6pm, with hours split between the 2 age groups. We are closed on stat holidays, and for three 4-day weekends in the year.
