DDA offers family-centered childcare programs in Vancouver and Richmond. We ensure our developmentally appropriate environments are staffed with caring and well-qualified early childhood educators and child & youth workers.
Below is a list of our child development centres and contact information. If you are interested in a waitlist application for your typically developing child, please apply online with our waitlist application form below.
DDA will be operating the Fraserview Child Development Centre, located on the 3rd floor of the new Sir Sandford Fleming School. The centre is now tentatively scheduled to open for Infant (12 spaces), Toddler (12 spaces), and 3-5 yrs. (25 spaces) care in July 2021; pending construction completion and licensing approval. Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience these delays have caused. We hope to begin contacting applicants (by date and priority order) in mid-April to confirm enrollment. Additional interested families are welcome to join the waitlist by submitting an electronic form.
