Andrew Fleck Child Care Services is changing its name to Andrew Fleck Children’s Services (AFCS) to reflect the variety of services offered including licensed early learning and care (8 sites), licensed Home Child Care, Children’s Inclusion Support Services, Ontario Early Years Centre – Ottawa South, Short Term Child Care and Child Care Consulting Services.
Over its 106 years of existence, the organization had many names including Settlement House Day Nursery when it first opened in 1911, Ottawa Day Nursery Inc. in 1920, Andrew Fleck Child Centre in 1970 and the latest Andrew Fleck Child Care Services since 1991.
We are also excited to share that Children’s Integration Support Services, one of AFCS’ programs, has also changed its name to Children’s Inclusion Support Services to include the term "inclusion" to accurately reflect our belief that all children are to be included.
While launching their new name, AFCS is also launching its social media initiative and is now active on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn.
AFCS’ website is also moving to the new www.afchildrensservices.ca domain.
