• Welcome to Share & Care Child Care Centre

    A Fully Licensed Child Care Centre
    Share and Care Child Care offers families in Markham, Stouffvile, Uxbridge and beyond, a familiar, safe and warm environment for your child to grow and develop from toddler to kindergarten in your home away from home. We are located in the heart of Stouffville, just steps away from the Go Transit station within a quiet and family oriented neighbourhood.
    • Age Appropriate Rooms

      We ensure that children have plenty of time to explore, play and learn, but most of all enjoy their day.

    • Healthy Meals

      We pay attention to your child’s cuisine as we believe that healthy meals nourish growing minds and help young ones adopt good eating habits for life.

    • Daily Naps

      Dozing youngsters are busy learning. Naps are when the brain of a slumbering preschooler processes and stores memories that are the foundation for learning.

    • School Bus Timing

      We make sure that your child arrives and returns from school safely. The children are met and escorted to and from the school bus.

  • Our philosophy is learning through play as we offer a stimulating environment for children.
    • Full Day Programs

      All full time programs run five days a week between 7:00 am and 5:30 pm.
      Please note: Part-Time Childcare is no longer available.

    Our Mission

    Our mission is to help stimulate curiosity and develop social awareness, creating happy, playful and thoughtful children in a safe and directed environment.

    Each child is a special individual and every aspect of his/her development is equally important. Our aim is to foster each child’s unique growth and development potential.

    Our Vision

    ALL children will participate in a rewarding early learning experience that will serve as the foundation for success in continued lifelong learning.

    ALL families will be offered outstanding early learning and childcare programs that promote understanding and respect for others and support and involve parents in their child’s early learning experiences.

    Our curriculum facilitates the development of a child’s executive function skills by establishing routines and modeling social behavior. Children aren’t born with these skills—they are born with the potential to develop them.


    The early years are a critical time as children begin to develop their identities as learners. They are naturally curious and eager to learn. It is important to foster their inquisitive nature, desire to be risk takers and explore. By doing so, we are laying the groundwork for learning and providing them the tools they will need to be learners.


    Childhood is about running, jumping, climbing and exploring and in the process learning the amazing capabilities of their body. It’s also a time of life where digging, splashing, throwing, and rolling around should be encouraged. With our secure, large outdoor space, and indoor gross motor space as well, children at Share & Care have ample time and opportunity for the physical.

    Social & Emotional

    Social skills are learned. We cannot expect our children to develop socially if we do not model appropriate social behaviors for them. Children learn through example, not by being told. Our teachers are social facilitators, providing children with the skills they need to resolve social situations in a successful and appropriate manner. Children learn to respect one another as they see the respect their teachers have for them.

    • My son has been with Share and Care for 3 years now. I cannot express enough love and gratitude to the staff at Share and Care in helping to mold and influence my son in such a positive and loving atmosphere…

    • From day one, Aida, Said and the rest of the Share and Care family not only provided an incredible amount of support to my twin daughters, showing them constant patience, understanding and kindness, but also allowed me to return to work confident that each of my girls were cared for, nurtured and loved. … Thank you Share and Care for giving my girls a wonderful home away from home and helping them grow into such lovely little ladies!

      Happy Parent
    • Right from the first time I called, they always made me feel like they were family oriented, rather than a business driven … he has learned so much. It makes me happy knowing that the decision my husband and I made positivley affects my son.
