Program Description

The Care for Newcomer Children (CNC) program provides a stimulating and safe environment for children to grow and learn while their parents participate in the Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) program. Our classrooms help children feel safe and comfortable while they enjoy many activities. Classrooms are equipped with toys and materials that encourage learning through play and help prepare them for kindergarten.

The program encourages children to develop confidence, introduces them to new friends and is lots of fun! The children learn English through play, song, and stories. While parents participate in the LINC program, children will participate in programs including:



  • Kindergarten Readiness
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Circle Time (songs, stories, language)
  • Gross Motor Play (ball toss and body movement)
  • Sensory Play (water, sand, play dough, etc.)
  • Imaginative Play with toys

Caregiver-to-child ratios

    • One Caregiver to three infants aged 6 months to 18 months old.
    • One Caregiver to five toddlers aged 19 months to 30 months old
