About Us

Buckhorn Daycare has been serving local families for over 35 years. Our programs are designed to promote the development of children aged 6 weeks to 12 years in an inclusive and welcoming environment.

Children are unique individuals and we help them to flourish—by having fun. Our programming nurtures the rich potential in each child through daily opportunities to explore, experience success, and enjoy good company.

All of our programs include nutritious snacks and lunches to fuel growing bodies and minds. Play and connection with nature are essential for healthy development, so we provide plenty of time for outdoor activities on our spacious playground.

Our Registered Early Childhood Educators all have criminal reference checks (including vulnerable sector checks) as well as first aid and child/infant CPR certifications, and immunizations up to date. The Daycare is licensed and inspected for quality assurance by the Early Learning Division of the Ministry of Education, Peterborough Public Health, and the Trent Lakes Fire Department.
