About Little Start

Your child's home away from home.

The Centre is the first of its kind in Simcoe County. We provide around-the-clock
childcare for 364 days of the year. We are pleased to provide care for those parents who work nontraditional hours and shift work. The Centre can accommodate regular
childcare hours, after school childcare and even overnight and weekend care.
