Tuc El Nuit Childcare Centre is operated by Penticton & District Community Resources Society, a non-profit social service organization.
PDCRS is a licensed and accredited business that requires staff to maintain many qualifications and trainings.
These trainings include, but are not limited to, First Aid, Incident Report training, Early Intervention training and Food Safe.
Many of these requirements are completed on our own time, however, there are two days per year that Tuc El Nuit is closed for staff to participate in professional development.
Tuc El Nuit After School Program provides service in which participants are welcomed, supported and valued. The activities of playing, learning and growing happen in a way which all participants feel they belong. All participants have different abilities and aptitudes; an inclusive setting accommodates and builds on those. The Program follows the principles of a family-centered approach, shared responsibility and planning for participants.
The Program provides licensed group childcare and support services are put in place for participants who attend through Supported Child Care Development. The Program provides a safe, stimulating environment in which all participants are able to develop and enhance a positive self concept of their unique selves. Parent support is available on an outreach basis, if needed.
The Program believes each participant is a unique individual who will develop to his/her potential. We believe the developmental childhood years are extremely important to increase social and emotional skills in play based programs to prepare participants for the future.
The goals of the Program are to:
Promote individuality, positive self-concept and respect for other people and their uniqueness.
Provide a quality early child care environment that is positive, nurturing and supportive.
Encourage participants to develop effective communication skills and appropriate ways of expressing feelings in order to develop strong positive relationships with their peers.
Promote healthy lifestyles for participants and their families by providing supplemental snacks that meet Canada’s Food Guidelines and by teaching self care skills that promote proper personal care and hygiene.
Support and build strong, healthy families.
Work in partnership with other agencies and community professionals on behalf of the participants we serve.
Provide a quality program, based on professional early childhood standards, and to support Program Staff in their ongoing professional development.
The Program fees are $250 per month
The Participant Information Handbook is provided to each family during the Program orientation.
This handbook informs parents/guardians of the policies and procedures of the Program.
