WELCOME to the Cedar Room at Bowen Children’s Centre, our licensed early learning care and education program for 4 and 5 year olds. Since we started up in 1971, our childcare centre (Bowen's first), has been ever evolving and represents the best of current early childhood research. Our education philosophy is “Reggio” inspired and the emphasis is on a joyful learning experience in an unhurried day with quality time spent with every child. Our warm and skilled staff truly connect with each and every child.  The Safe Spaces program is foundational to our learning environment, teaching young children empathy, emotional literacy and positive problem-solving skills.

Our capacity is presently 20 children. The minimum staff to children ratio is 1:8. We often staff higher than this to safeguard the quality of the program, and to reduce wear and tear on our staff. This preschool aged program is well and truly loved by the community and is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 6:30p.m.


We enrol children into our programs in the order in which we receive their family’s applications. However, we do reserve the right to manage the acceptance of applications so as to create group dynamics that allow the children (and staff) to have the best possible experiences.

Our 4 and 5 year old program registration is ongoing; parents may register their children at any time during the year, and children are accepted into the program as space becomes available. There is no fee to register for the waitlist just call 604-947-9626 or email info@bowenchildrenscentre.ca
