Tykes of Columbus was founded in 1999 with the goal to provide a positive daycare experience with a large focus on outdoor play. Located on just over an acre of land, with an outdoor space of over 8000 square feet, our goal is to engage your child with both indoor and outdoor activities, enabling self-discovery and growth.

Our classrooms are bright and cheerful with large exterior windows that provide an abundance of light to keep the centre naturally lit most hours of the day. Studies have shown that this creates a less stressful environment for the children, leading to reducing fatigue factors, improving children’s health and the enhancement of general development. Additionally our interior glass portion walls provide a great observation tool without disturbing the programming taking place in the classroom.

We are a fully licensed facility under the Ministry of Education, meeting and exceeding the requirements set forth by both the Ministry of Education and the Region of Durham Children’s Services. The center is routinely inspected by the Health Department, Fire Department, Durham Region and licensing officers from the Ministry. We are thrilled that you are considering us for your childcare learning needs. We at Tykes of Columbus Child Care are driven by a common goal, which is to excel in every aspect of the services we offer. Our knowledgeable and caring staff will ensure that you, the parent will receive all the information required to make an informative decision.
