COVID-19 Updates

All child care centres will re-open on July 6, 2020 with updated health and safety policies to address COVID-19 risks and meet the requirements set forth by the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health and Waterloo Region Public Health. Owl employees have received training in these new procedures and have restructured their classrooms to create safe, caring and positive environments where they can engage and learn alongside the children.
