Things We Love: Montrose Child Care Centre

The Montrose Child Care Centre is located in Little Italy, and supports over 90 families in the Toronto area. Aside from a daycare, it is also a place for children to be nurtured and to grow in a safe, ideal environment.

The teachers and staff at Montrose Child Care Centre have been working hard at developing programs tailored specially for children at certain age groups , providing the care and attention necessary to help them learn. They also have their own chef who prepares nutritious, mainly vegetarian and fresh food every day.

As a member of the community, Le Dolci is proud to assist in their fundraiser by donating one of our decorating classes. We hope to be part of the Montrose Child Care Centre expansion in helping children have a better learning environment, as well as providing training and education to the staff at the centre. They are hoping to provide field trips to local museums and events too, so that the children can have the opportunity to experience different adventures outside the child care centre.

We are happy to assist Montrose Child Care Centre in achieving these goals, by donating one of our classes to their silent auction. The auction will be held on Saturday, December 1, 2012. To find out more details on how you can help, visit Montrose Child Care Centre’s website!
