Finding good quality childcare is a major concern for most parents who are working or taking college classes. You certainly do not want to have to stress over whether or not your child is being cared for while you are completing your educational and professional goals. Here are some of the best daycare facilities near SFU.


SFU Childcare Society

The teachers and staff at the SFU Childcare Society have been presented with multiple awards, which includes being recognized at Canada’s first living building. It has also been called the greenest childcare facility that is in existence, and has also won the Canada Green Building Award.

From three months to 12 years, there are programs suitable for children in multiple stages of their learning careers. This daycare centre was built specifically with SFU students in mind.

Montessori schools carefully prepare an environment that is beneficial to the physical, social, intellectual and emotional growth of the small children who attend. Kensington Montessori Childcare is located very close to the SFU campus, and is an excellent daycare choice for parents who are attending classes or working in the Burnaby area.
