A childcare centre licensed for 24 spaces.

Silver King Childcare Centre does not keep a regular waitlist for childcare spaces. We do give priority placement to Selkirk student families. If you are enrolled at Selkirk College and in need of childcare please send an email to hayleyr@kootenaykids.ca to find out about any upcoming availability.

 The Silver King Childcare Centre opened on Tuesday, September 7, 2021.  The facility is a newly constructed, one-level, open plan design allowing easy adaptations of the space for different uses.  There is plenty of natural light in the building as well as access to plenty of outdoor play space. 

The Silver King Childcare Centre offers care for 16 infants and toddlers, and eight 3-5 year-olds in a multi-age program. Materials and activities are dynamic and engaging to foster physical, emotional, intellectual, creative and social growth.

We utilize British Columbia’s Early Learning Framework as well as work with The Early Childhood Pedagogy Network to guide and support our Educators in providing rich early learning experiences for young children. As well, we incorporate Indigenous programming into our curriculum with the support of community Elders who share stories, drumming and songs with the children. We are an inclusive space where all people and all voices are welcomed and celebrated.

 For in depth information about SKC programming, parents can find useful information in the Parent Handbook which explains the policies and procedures of the centre.

 The  Affordable Childcare Benefit is a monthly payment to help eligible families with the cost of childcare. Families are encouraged to review eligibility criteria.     

Kootenay Kids Society offers families the convenience of paying daycare fees through e-transfer.
