Little Friends Childcare Centre is a licensed, play based centre that provides an enriched, inclusive program for children 3 through to 5 years of age.
We are located at the corner of Steveston Hwy and No Three Road in Richmond, BC. The centre operates under the direction of the Ministry of Health, Community Care Facilities Licensing Branch, Provincial Child Care Regulations and the Supported Development program.
We believe that a professional and caring staff team is essential for quality care of children. All permanent staff members hold a current Early Childhood Educators Licence and a current First Aid certificate. The staff also participates in ongoing professional development activities. Our high teacher/child ratio provides children the extra attention they deserve to have all their needs met and a learning environment that helps them grow to their potential.

Visiting ( suspended at this time)
We hope you will visit. Children derive the most benefit when the home and school work hand in hand.
Visitors are welcome , however we would like a teacher to be available to spend time with you and answer your questions, so we ask that you call or email to set up an appointment.
When visiting, we encourage you to interact with your child and play with the many toys and materials available in the various learning centres.
