At Waterview we offer play-based and emergent curriculum. Learning through play allows children to be creative, while stimulating their physical, social/emotional and cognitive development. An integral component of learning is when children are able to use imagination and make connections through their experiences. Children are provided with daily opportunities to make their own discoveries through various activities.

We were first established as Gordon Street Children's Cottage Child Care Centre located on the grounds of Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences Centre in April 1988. Due to Government cutbacks, we had to relocate and with a lot of hard work and dedication, the staff, parents, and community volunteers constructed a new centre, which opened on March 3 1997 under the name, Waterview Child Care Centre. We take pride in continuing to be able to offer the best quality childcare for over 80 families in Durham Region.
