In April 1986, Mr. Doug Colins, President of the Barrhaven Community Association approached Mrs. Helena Hall to spearhead a committee of voluntary community members to establish a much needed child care centre in Barrhaven. After three years of hard work this dream became a reality. On September 18, 1989, the Barrhaven Child Care Centre, a hub model linking Mary Honeywell School, opened its doors to receive children ranging from the ages of six weeks to ten years. The Barrhaven Child Care Centre is a non-profit Corporation and now a registered charity which is operated by a voluntary Board of Directors of professionals from the Barrhaven Community
