Many years ago, several parishioners knew that the children of our area had particular needs for daytime care, and so the Jamesville Children’s Centre was born. From very humble beginnings, in which Cathedral space which was largely unused was made available to a clearly articulated community need, Jamesville has grown and grown, developing significant expertise as a child care centre which cares greatly for its children and which works closely with the community. It is a Cathedral outreach of which we should be justly proud – it now serves almost 100 children and is known as a leader in the child care community throughout the region. It continues its close working relationship with the Dean, the Cathedral Staff, and the congregation.
Jamesville Children’s Centre offers early learning and care to children 18 months to 12 years. Parents who access the service may be working, going to school, have medical issues, or are struggling with challenges that make it difficult to raise their children.
