All Aboard Child Care
All Aboard Childcare was opened in April 2016 by owner Amanda Clarke, manager Amanda McCuaig, and their awesome team of Early Childhood Educators, Infant Toddler Educators, and Assistant ECEs. The centre was taken over from a previously existing daycare, where many of the educators also worked.
Our name was chosen in honour of Amanda Clarke’s father Douglas who passed away in 2015, and was an avid model railroader, and train enthusiast.
All Aboard is a licensed, play based centre located in the West Highlands area of Aberdeen in Kamloops, BC. Two healthy snacks are provided per day, as well as a hot lunch on the 15th of every month.
We enjoy utilizing our beautiful neighbourhood by taking nice walks, running around the many fields, and spending time out in our own yard.
Every educator is First Aid and Food Safe certified.
