Cobourg Day Care Inc., opened its doors at 359 Division Street in a renovated house on November 15, 1983. This venture was partially funded by the Ministry of Community and Social Services with the remaining funds loaned by the Town of Cobourg. At that time, five staff members provided child care to thirty-one children, ranging in age from two and a half to five years of age. As a result in 1988, application was made with the Ministry of Community and Social Services for the expansion of the Centre’s facilities. Our specially designed facilities at 325 Alexandria Drive, are the result of two long years of planning and effort on the part of Laurel Anderson, Staff and Board of Directors. Our present centre opened on January 15, 1990 and is licensed to provide child care services to one hundred and twenty children, ranging from infants to school-age children. In 1993 we added a Nursery School component to our Centre. In addition to caring for all ages of children we also care for special needs children.
Although our Centre had grown larger, we strive to maintain the warmth and caring our Centre was founded on.
