Covid 19 Policy

Our organization is committed to the health and safety of our employees and the prevention of occupational injuries and disease.  It is our responsibility to be the benchmark in effectively managing and communicating our programs regarding health and safety and maintaining compliance with the occupational health and safety act and related regulations.



The programming at Terry Tan is developed on a weekly basis by trained Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECE) and approved by supervisory staff to ensure that the developmental needs of every child are met. Written program plans are posted outside each classroom outlining a variety of daily, age-appropriate activities that meet children’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual needs. Programming is implemented in response to the children’s needs and interests using emergent curriculum and the Provincial Document “How Does Learning Happen“ is referenced as a guide.


Nutrition & Diet

Nutrition plays an important role in a child’s development both physically and mentally. We work alongside M.Albert Catering  to provide Nutritionist approved lunches and morning/afternoon snacks to meet the nutritional needs of growing children. The centre has a strict “NO Outside Food” policy to protect children with allergies. If your child requires a special diet for cultural or medical reasons, we will work with our families and do our best to accommodate. Please view our meal plan for more information.


Fees & Subsidies

The fees at Terry Tan are set annually by its parent/community Board of Directors. Both locations have a Purchase of Service Agreement (fee subsidy) with Toronto Children’s Services. Please view our Fee schedule for details and additional information on subsidized day care at Terry Tan.
