With most employment opportunities moving out of City of Scarborough ON, the old John Mansville plant in Centennial is now townhomes, more and more parents have to take a longer commute to find viable employment. That means either driving beyond the downtown area or making a 30-minute bus trip to work. What does that mean to the typical Scarborough family? For one, kids and parents have to spend more time apart. That’s not a desirable outcome for parents looking to provide a stable and healthy environment for their young families. Luckily, you don’t have to give up your career to be there for your kids. The many daycare centers in and around Scarborough can offer a stable and healthy environment every growing child wants. Here are some of the best daycare facilities according to Scarborough residents.
Good Shepherd Day Care
Located on Birchmount Road in Scarborough, Good Shepherd Day Care is one of the highest rated centers in the neighborhood. They have everything your growing child needs.

They accept kids as young as six months. The caregivers here are attentive to the needs of all of their charges, which is relatively easy to do owing to the exclusive nature of the center.

Precious Gems Christian Home Daycare
Another church-operated daycare center, Precious Gems Christian Home provides the diverse Scarborough population with facility kids can feel at home.
