Community Involvement

At Petit child care centres, we expand the circle wider.

We open our arms, hearts and minds to people and organizations in our community.

By getting involved, our children learn how to embrace new ideas, people and places.

And as educators and parents, we make a difference in the lives of others — and learn new things along the way.

Parent and family involvement

We always welcome parents and families to get involved with us!

If you’re interested in participating or helping with any of our events, contact your centre director today.

Our range of initiatives

Across our child care centres, we have many connections and initiatives with local organizations.

We also host several events and educational sessions at our centres.
