Who is the new space for?
Full o'Beans Full-time and Beansprouts Infant and Toddler Care will open up 25 spaces for 3-5 year olds, plus 24 spaces for infant and toddler care. We are open to any family, with no 'catchment' areas.
As a 'BC Early Years Centre', Saanich Neighborhood Place will also offer other services and programs to community members in this new space as well as in our existing location within Pearkes Recreation Centre.
Where are 'Full o'Beans Full-Time' and 'Beansprouts' located?
Our new building, housing our full-time care options, will be located behind Pearkes Recreation Centre, across the parking lot from Tillicum Center and SilverCity Movie Theatre. We are easily accessed by bus, or bike, and there is lots of free parking too.
What will the programs include?
Like our part-time programs, Full o'Beans Full-time and Beansprouts Infant and Toddler Care will offer flexible, inclusive care to your children, at competitive rates. Our programs will include free-play indoors and out, art, music and stories, active and quiet play, plus rests as appropriate for the long days spent with us.
We are excited about the new low impact natural play space, 'The Little Woods Natural Playground', which we are planning for the outdoor play space of our new building as well. This natural play space will offer lots of opportunities for imaginative, exploratory play and vigorous physical playtime, all in a beautiful outdoor setting.
