Who We Are
REKSAP Centres For Early Learning at Regina was established by a group of parents and the Principal (Meryl Bogart) of Regina Street Public School in 1984. In 2006, the Principal at Severn Public School (Dave Petrie) was instrumental in the expansion of our program to Severn Public School. We have expanded over the years to meet the needs of our community. We are a licensed, non-profit child care program operating Monday - Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m., 12 months of the year. Our Board of Directors is comprised of parents and community members.
The full-time staff at REKSAP Centres For Early Learning are Registered Early Childhood Educators. The part-time staff have training and/or experience appropriate for their position. Our dedicated team of Educators take part in ongoing professional development opportunities to develop and provide an educational play based curriculum. We work cooperatively with parents and families to best meet the needs of all our children.
The Ministry of Education (MOE) licenses REKSAP Centres For Early Learning under the Child Care and Early Years Act. The Centre is required to meet all the regulations of this Act, including health and fire regulations dictated by the City of Ottawa, the Ontario Fire Marshal, and the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board.
