The staff at Terry Tan Child Centre consists of a majority of Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECE) who are graduates of a recognized college/university program. With ongoing training through a variety of professional development workshops, the educators at Terry Tan provide unique quality programming that supports the independent learning and growth of the children.

The centre employs a cook who prepares the meals for both locations each day. The meals served meet the daily nutritional requirements as identified through Canada’s Food Guide. With multiple food restrictions and allergies and to protect the children, NO FOOD may come into the centre that has not been purchased by the cook or Administrative staff. A copy of the four week menu may also be found on this site.

Terry Tan employs three Early Childhood Consultants that provide services to child care centres in the City of Toronto. Each of the three consultants are responsible to cluster of licensed child care agencies to offer training, program development and individual child services which may also include speech and language, occupational therapy or behaviour therapy. All services are free of charge and are successful only with the full aware and consent from a child’s parent.

Terry Tan is a member of Community Network of Childcare Programs (CNCP), Anaphylaxis Canada, Ontario Coalition for Better Childcare (OCBCC), Canadian Child Care Federation, Etobicoke Brighter Futures Coalition (EBFC) and Umbrella. Staff have the opportunity to attend workshops that are relevant to the program and promote professional growth which includes CPR and First Aid.
