Dearham Wood daycare is a not-for-profit, school-based childcare centre serving the Guildwood community and surrounding areas. Together with the parents, the Dearham Wood staff shares the responsibility for quality child care. We treat each child as an individual. Our goal is to strengthen family life by providing enriching  programs and experiences in a safe and reliable environment; one that facilitates the growth and development of every child through encouragement, stimulation and diversified imaginative programming experiences.



Dearham Wood Daycare is pleased to offer full-day Preschool programs for children aged 2.5-4 years.

Children enrolled in the Preschool Program will be served a hot catered lunch and two snacks each day. Our food service provider is happy to accommodate any dietary needs.
