Fountain Play Centre

The Fountain Play Centre (FPC) is a subsidized child care service.  The Fountain Play Centre is not a full-day day care service.  The FPC provides childcare service for children of Mount Saint Vincent University students while they attend class.

The FPC is open to all children of Mount students, however:

  • enrolment is limited and offered on a first come first serve basis
  • care is only offered to children from 1-5 years old
  • children can only be supervised at the FPC while the parent(s)/guardian(s) are in their scheduled classes and during allotted study times to be determined by parent(s)/guardian(s) and managers at the beginning of each care period

The Fountain Play Centre seeks to create a fun and safe learning environment.  The FPC is equipped with a nursery, children’s bathroom with a change table, many toys, educational games and tools, arts and crafts supplies, music.  We plan many parties and events throughout the academic year such as our Annual Kid’s Carnival.

The FPC is staffed by a Programming Manager, an Operations Manager and a dedicated team of volunteers.  All staff are trained with Emergency First Aid Level C and CPR and have been checked by the Child Abuse Registry.

The Fountain Play Centre service is offered at a subsidized rate of $3.00/hr/child.
