Enriching children's lives by meeting their physical, developmental and social needs in a caring, family-centred environment
We are proud to offer programs and services that meet the physical, developmental, and social needs of Northwestern Ontario children of all ages and abilities. Helping children achieve their best by providing family-centred services is an essential part of what we do. Our dedicated and caring professionals acknowledge and respect each family’s uniqueness and seek their advice and guidance to help children reach their potential.
A Message for Clients, Families, and Visitors to George Jeffrey Children's Centre
George Jeffrey Children's Centre was recently advised by the design consultants and structural engineers involved in the original design of our building that there are areas of the roof where the design did not account for adequate roof snow loading and snow drift accumulation. A detailed review of the original design is underway in order to address the snow loading deficiencies.
In the interim, a snow monitoring and removal program is required for the winter season to ensure safety of people attending the Centre. A temporary plan was developed and approved by the City's Building Services Division. Snow levels on the roof will be monitored daily according to the plan and snow removal will take place to ensure snow levels do not exceed the levels outlined in the plan.
The implementation of the snow removal plan may result in temporary mandatory closure of the Centre. Should a temporary closure be required, clients and families will be notified as soon as possible. Announcements regarding any closures will be made on local media and on our website.
The management team and the Board of Directors of George Jeffrey Children's Centre are committed to providing a safe environment for everyone who comes to our Centre. We will make every effort to ensure minimal disruption to services.
On behalf of our management team and Board of Directors,
Tina Bennett, Chief Executive Officer
