Evening and Overnight Care

It is often difficult to find child care for those working evenings and shift work. Licensed child care is not easily found in Ontario, or even Canada for that matter. That’s why Engaging Minds is now offering overnight child care options. This gives individuals such as nurses, doctors, police officers and anyone else who finds him/herself working late into the evening and overnight the freedom to do so, all the while knowing that their children are in a nurturing, safe environment which is licensed under the Ministry of Education, following the regulations that daytime child care centers do. Throughout the evening children will be offered free play, planned activities, dinner and help with personal hygiene such as teeth brushing and dressing for bed. After a quiet time on beds, children can doze off to sleep comfortably knowing that caregivers are awake and attentive should any needs arise throughout the evening. In the morning children will wake up to a healthy breakfast and will get dressed and ready to be picked up by parents and/or guardians.

Overnight care runs from 6:30pm-6:30am. Should your hourly needs be different, feel free to come visit the center and we can discuss how best to accommodate your needs.
