Child Care

The CBU Early Childhood Centre is available to students, staff and faculty of CBU and NSCC Marconi Campus. Any remaining spaces are available to the general public.

The Centre is located in Campus Centre and is open Monday to Friday. Our highly trained staff will make every effort to ensure your child gets the most out of their time at the centre. There are six staff members as well as an onsite chef.

Alongside their regular daily activities, children at the Early Childhood Centre often visit the campus gym and soccer dome and participate in fun events hosted on campus.

The Early Childhood Centre is available to children from two to five years old. Children are broken up into three groups: two-year-olds, three and four-year-olds, and five-year-olds.

Both full-time and part-time options are available. Full-time is five days per week and part-time is anywhere from two to four days per week. Parents must choose the same two to four days each week, it cannot fluctuate. Subsidized seats are available, and can be applied for through written application from the centre once a spot has been secured.

There is currently a waitlist for the Centre. To add your child’s name, or to inquire about daycare fees, please call 902-563-1811 or email

The waitlist can range from 1-2 years, depending on the age of the child.
