Centre- and home-based child care in Cobourg & Northumberland County

Cook’s School Day Care Inc. is a not-for-profit, charitable organization.

Early learning and child care for children age 3 weeks to 13 years.

Children are competent, capable and rich in potential and we will offer every child opportunities and encouragement to pursue, share and celebrate his or her individual passions, curiosities and abilities.

Every child deserves a safe, warm, caring and inclusive environment where respect, care and understanding are priorities.

Every child will feel that they belong, that their well-being is a priority and that they have time and a place to become engaged and express themselves in their play.
