Mission Statement

We support nurturing, play-based early learning that supports each child to reach their full potential while giving families peace of mind.


A place where discovery becomes second nature

We believe that every child has the right to thrive.

Formerly Owl Child Care Services of Ontario, we are now RisingOaks Early Learning Ontario - a registered charity and one of the largest centre-based, early learning and care providers in Waterloo Region. We provide early learning and care for children from birth to 12 years old.

Our educators are experts in supporting lifelong learning for each and every RisingOaks child. We know that early learning experiences through play create well-rounded, healthy people as they grow and make their mark on the world.

From our rich history as Owl to our bold new future as RisingOaks, our values continue to guide us and benefit our RisingOaks families.
