High quality. Flexible. Affordable. That's the kind of care CUPW and UPCE-PSAC members say they need – but can't find.
CUPW and UPCE-PSAC families in Windsor can have access to the child care they need, thanks to our child care project.
(SFLC) is a Native, non-profit, registered charity providing quality child care in the Windsor community. The word Ska:na is an Oneida word that means "Peace".
SFLC believes in supporting the whole family and follows the High/Scope philosophy in regards to child and family development.
That means having peace of mind while you're at work. And that means a lot.
It is important to find child care that you can trust, and a preschool that exceeds your expectations. That is why CUPW has partnered with SFLC since 2010.
Ska:na creates an environment where children are safe, nurtured, loved and encouraged to learn.
Ska:na's quality education programs are delivered by:
• Registered Early Childhood Educators (Ontario College of ECE)
• Safe and developmentally sound environments
• Comprehensive curriculum and age-appropriate learning experiences
Highly qualified staff foster an atmosphere in which children develop a positive selfconcept through age appropriate activities designed to meet each child's need.
Ska:na Child and Family Learning Centre offers centre-based child care programs for children from birth to 12 years old.
Hours of operation are Monday to Friday from 6:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Ska:na provides postal workers access to the following programs:
High quality child care is expensive. The Child Care Fund subsidizes the cost for services provided by SFLC that are available to postal workers.
Subsidies are as follows:
Infant and toddler 50% of parent fee Preschooler 40% of parent fee
Kindergarten and School Age 40% of parent fee.
In addition, if a CUPW family has more than one child attending the centre an additional 25% of parent fee.
(Note the subsidy is taxable)
