CNC (Care for Newcomer Children)

What is Care for Newcomer Children (CNC)?

Are you a student in one of our LINC programs? Do you have children? We offer FREE childcare if you said yes to both of these questions.

In the CNC program, children participate in age-appropriate activities every day which are designed to help them understand life in Canada. All activities are sensitive to each child’s past experiences and differences in development.

The children in the CNC program come from many different cultures. In the CNC program, we create an environment of respect, creativity, fun, and understanding of differences.
