"My husband and I are moving from Cornwall and I could not leave without waving a huge flag of love and appreciation for Heart of the Family Child Care Center! Our son Tristan has hung out since ten months old and is now two and a half. Our little guy put the staff through their paces as Tristan was plagued by seizures which thankfully only come on occasion now. Besides the epilepsy, Tristan is autistic which can be a challenge but Heart has been wonderful at understanding him. I struggle to find the words to express our immense gratitude and love. Tristan will miss his Heart of the Family ‘Mamas’ and we will also. THANK YOU and we love you all!"

"I have my three children attending Heart and they love it there! We always feel like the teachers and staff all truly care for our children and treat them like they would their own family! Whenever we have a concern or a problem, the administration is right there listening to us and working with us to find a solution. I highly recommend Heart!"

hour childcare

Extended hours are very rarely provided for in-group care and very hard to find in home care. When we opened our Centre  in 2009 our objective was to break barriers and provide licensed care for the non-traditional work force – allowing more families to work and provide for their families in Cornwall and the United Counties.

Heart of the Family currently offers care for families in careers such as nursing, emergency services, logistics and distribution and many others. We also serve families when they go to school and/or training programs with child care needs outside of daytime traditional Monday to Friday hours.

Subsidies are available through the City of Cornwall for those families who qualify.

Give us a call if you want more information on this program or how we can serve you and your families needs.


Heart of the Family daycare has exceptional programs for children of all ages.
