We are pleased to welcome you and your child(ren) to our program.
Sombra Township Child Care Inc. is a non-profit, incorporated Early Learning Program with a warm, interactive and stimulating environment. Our programs meet or exceed all regulations and standards as determined by the Child Care and Early Years Act, Ministry of Education and the requirements of the County of Lambton.
Upon completion of the annual licensing inspection, a renewal license is issued by the Ministry of Education and is posted at the entrance to each of our sites. STCC is licenced for children from 3 months to 12 years. We currently have 108 licenced spaces.
Through play, PELP helps prepare young children for life by developing five age-appropriate school readiness skills: physical, emotional, social, language and cognitive development. PELP is 2.5 hours and families can access up to 16 sessions per month at no cost.
PELP is open to Lambton County children between 31 months to four years of age who are not eligible for junio or senior kindergarten.
The PELP is available ten months of the year from September to June. Children can begin participating at 31 months and continue until they are eligible for junior kindergarten.
The Preschool Early Learning Program is free space permitting. Residents living in Lambton County who have children 31 months to 4 years can participate in this program. The program is also available in French. Parents who want additional time at the child care centre can pay based on the child care operator’s rate.
Both of my children have attended STCC since they were infants. My husband and I could not be happier with the care they have received over the past 5 years. The staff is very welcoming and knowledgeable, and work very hard to ensure the needs of all the children are met. They are a very caring and dedicated team. The management does a fantastic job in working with families, and provides flexibility in accommodating the needs of everyone.
My daughter really enjoys the after-school programming she receives each day, and my son is always excited to attend his PELP sessions throughout the week. I feel very confident and comfortable leaving my children in the hands of the staff at STCC.Linda and Jamie Nethery
Sombra Township Child Care – Sacred Heart School Port Lambton Location
My children both attended S.T.C.C. from the time they were 2.5 years old. They are now 7 and 8 and I couldn’t imagine them being anywhere else. Best Start offers an amazing opportunity to engage your children socially before entering into the whole new world of JK. It allowed them to become familiarized with the school and get to meet children there, which only made onboarding them for school that much easier both for them and for us as parents.
The staff ensures that children are meeting milestones and engages them from early years to school aged offering different interests and educational centres to assist along the way.
The staff we have had the pleasure of working with have not only supported our children but also us as parents sharing many of their lessons learned and words of wisdom. In fact, one that sticks out for us is, “You can’t always just weed the garden, sometimes you just have to water the flowers.”
I wouldn’t hesitate to encourage anyone to participate in this amazing, local program. Thank you STCC for giving my kids the Best Start they could have had.The VanRuymbeke’s
The team at Sombra Township Child Care are absolutely amazing. Thank you for providing my son Ryker with a safe, educational and fun experience. From reading, crafts, outdoor activities, crawling and even to walking my son has had the best teachers by far. He has learnt many things as well as well as respect, how to share and play with others. The cook Jane is absolutely amazing as well…always home cooked meals and snacks prepared each day. If there is anyone I would completely trust leaving my son with it would be the Team at STCC-Thank you ALL for being so amazing for my family, myself and especially Ryker.Jessica & Jerry O’Neil
