Welcome to Isabella Walton Child Care Centre

What makes IWCC Unique?


Isabella Walton Childcare Centre Inc. is a non-profit childcare centre, governed by a voluntary board of directors comprised of parents and members from the community. The centre is licensed by the Ministry of Education (Early Years) and has a Purchase of Service Agreement with Toronto Children’s Services.

IWCC has opted in for the Canada Wide Early Learning Child Care (CWELCC) initiative. The CWELCC agreement with the Government of Canada supports a fee reduction for families and provides affordability to high quality early learning care.

We are conveniently located at the southeast corner of Birchmount Road and Eglinton Avenue and are open Monday to Friday from 7:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. We are closed on all statutory holidays and on Easter Monday.

Our centre is licensed for 10 infants, 10 toddlers and 32 preschoolers.


Isabella Walton Childcare Centre is a custom built childcare facility and has been in operation since 1991. Anjali Dubey, the Executive Director has been with the organization since its inception as have many of our qualified staff. She also currently serves on the selection committee for the Prime Minister’s Awards for Excellence in Teaching. All our full time staff are fully trained RECE’s and one of our educators was nominated and received the Prime Minister’s Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2016.

At Isabella Walton Childcare Centre we provide quality programs for ten infants (3 months to 18 months), ten toddlers (18 months to 30 months) and two groups of preschool children (2.5 years to 3.8 years).

Waiting List

We currently have a one to two year waiting list with no guarantee for spaces. We recommend parents put their names on the waiting list as soon as possible and contact the centre every six months to update their information.

Prior to Enrolment

All registration forms must be filled out completely before your child can start at IWCC. This includes a medical and up to date immunizations. The first two weeks fees are required on acceptance of the spot.

It is recommended that children are eased into the program on a gradual basis. Parents are encouraged to leave their child for a short period of time on the first day and gradually increase the length of time as your child gets used to the program, staff and the children. Your child will make the transition easier if he or she is eased into the program.

Withdrawal Notice

Written notice of withdrawal must be given two weeks in advance, or in lieu of notice, two week's fees. If policies are not followed or fees not paid, childcare services may be withdrawn.
