24 Years in the Community
Since 1989 Arnprior and District Child Care Services has been part of our community. First starting in Arnprior, opening a kindergarten and school age program at a local school (Rainbow Valley Child Care Centre at AlexanderReid Public School) and then a toddler and preschool program at a new location (Sunshine Preschool) they have continued to grow.
Offering Care for Everyone
In 2008 those two centers came together as one at a newly built addition to AJ Charbonneau Public School. The centered was newly named Leaps & Bounds Children’s Centre Arnprior. It was a first for Arnprior and the organization to be under one roof, together, offering care for families from 12 months to 12 years of age.
We Opened A New Location in Renfrew
Most recently, we have added to our child care family a new location at St Thomas the Apostle Catholic School in Renfrew. Similarly we are providing quality care for children through the ages.
Both programs are open to anyone in the community, regardless of what school or school board you are a part of. We are separately run by our own volunteer, non-profit board of directors.
