Oliver Board Recognition
Oliver Centre is a program that has been in the Oliver neighborhood for over thirty years. Through the years it has been established as a centre that takes pride in the development of children. All of the staff who work in the classroom comes to the program with a degree or diploma in education. This ensures that your children will be inspired through play. They will become explorers, investigators, make great friendships, and learn to become independent thinkers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the amazing staff that work with your children. They are the reason Oliver Centre is a well known, well recognized centre for early learning.
