Early Learning Services
A variety of child care services are provided in Ottawa Catholic School Board schools. Some schools have programs operated directly by the Board, such as Extended Day programs and ESL Child Care. In other schools, the Ottawa Catholic Child Care Corporation operates licensed child care programs and two preschool resource centres in partnership with the Board. Additionally, space is leased in a few schools to other licensed child care operators.
