Bowmanville Program

Location: Bowmanville
Ages: 6 weeks to 12 years

Compass Early Learning and Care Bowmanville is located in one of the largest growing communities in the area and is connected to Holy Family Catholic School. Since opening our doors in 2007 we have welcomed children from as young as 6 weeks with many of those same children with us still in our school age program.

The child care program has been designed to provide beautiful open classrooms with large windows to connect each space to the outdoors. Our outdoor playground offers children a natural space inside a suburban area. We understand the complexities and challenges for families today and with many of our families commuting to other cities for work, we are proud to offer a space for children as their home away from home.
