Welcome to Shuswap Day Care!

We are a non-profit centre offering quality child care.

subtitle_bar Shuswap Day Care Society, is a non-profit organization offering quality daycare to children and families from Salmon Arm and surrounding areas since September 1969. The society has successfully grown over the years and now owns and operates two childcare facilities. The society has several programs offering full-time and part-time care depending on the age of your child and your requirements.

  • Infant & Toddler Program: 6 months to 3 years
  • 3 to 5 Year Old Program

  • Out of School Program: Full-Day Kindergarten to 12 years

We provide the highest quality Early Childhood Education within a warm and nurturing environment. We are proud of our dedicated staff and the many years of service the society has contributed to the community of Salmon Arm.


We currently have wait lists for entry into all of our daycare programs, the length of time your child may be on a waitlist depends on the program and schedule required. Please call Heather @ 250-832-6192 or email her @ shuswapdaycare@telus.net  to inquire about your specific needs. We are no longer accepting enrollment requests for the Out of School Program as we are running full and see very little turnover.
