We encourage kids to care for our planet, for themselves, and to respect the diverse families of our community.
2 / 3 year olds – Tuesdays & Thursdays
3 / 4 year olds – Monday, Wednesday & Friday
This is a play based program that is centred around the child’s interests. We enjoy the ‘emergent curriculum’ approach from the New Brunswick Curriculum Framework for Early Learning and Child Care, while incorporating seasonal and traditional themes into our programming as well.
Ages 5 to 10
Monday through Friday
We pick up students from all North End Moncton schools. They are given plenty of opportunity to share ideas in the daycare and outdoors. We spend as much time outside as possible most days! The children get to choose which of the neighbourhood parks to go to each afternoon by voting on six options!
For the school-age kids when there is no school.
March Break / Christmas Break / PD days
We respect and support the child’s innate desire to learn about the world around them through hands on experiments. Education about protecting our planet shines through in all aspects of our daily routines.
More qualified staff and small groups; healthy food and homelike atmosphere. We also reduce, reuse and recycle everyday!
At Earthlings we aspire to teach children how to care for the environment (nature and all it’s creatures), our community and ourselves. Activities revolve around respect and appreciation for nature, our food is organic non-GMO and sourced from ethical practices, and children get to learn how to tend to on-site gardens and grow their own vegetables!
We have 3 qualified educators in the preschool classes and 2-3 in the After-School Program. With maximum group sizes of no more 15 children we have twice the mandated staff, which ensures a higher level of care for your child. All staff have Early Childhood Education experience, an ECE Diploma or Degree, and are active in the ECCENB Curriculum Framework Program.
Don’t take it from us, let our families do the talking!
"Our son started going to Earthlings four years ago and we couldn’t be happier with the whole body nourishment he receives on a daily basis. From the incredibly healthy food to humanitarian lessons to unreserved playtime at an array of community parks, we feel like Roxy and her teaching team go above and beyond the norm."

"The staff at Earthlings are so nice. They have gone out of their way to make it possible to have my daughter attend their daycare. Having her in a French school posed some challenges but they work with me to overcome those challenges so my daughter can attend this awesome daycare."
"Earthlings is a great place for my daughter because of the consistent outside playtime she receives at local playgrounds and treks through the woods and parks. We appreciate the healthy, local, and organic menu that is offered; and that green living practices are taught and lived out just like at home. We feel confident leaving her in the care of the fun and caring Earthlings staff."
"Since my daughter started at Earthlings I have noticed a big improvement in her self- confidence. She is also learning about friendship, boundaries, and problem-solving. She has even been coming home speaking French words! The ladies working at Earthlings are very understanding, caring, friendly & fun! We live across town but we lovingly make the trip to Earthlings because we know she is receiving the best care!"
"Putting our kids in Earthlings Childcare is one of the best decisions we made for our Children. From our first visit, our children felt so welcomed and comfortable. They are happy about going to their preschool and every time we drop them off they are excited. They even want to stay a little bit longer when we go to pick them up.
They have so much fun at the school and they learn in so many different ways through plays, crafts and circle time; they become more verbal, social and educated each day. The staff are great, supportive and they truly care about and love children and they are creating an environment that nurtures learning. Our children didn’t know English when they started here and now they are saying words and understanding in just couple of months. We also love the pictures they take of the kids activities. We are indebted to the dedicated, kindness, and passionate staff at the Earthlings Childcare."
"Earthlings Childcare was exactly what I was seeking in childcare for our daughter. Roxy and her girls were amazing! Never once did I ever worry about our daughter, with the amount of outdoor play and the healthy food served & environmental educational activities it really stood for what is important to us as a family and I'm so grateful for such a unique find in a childcare provider."
"Earthlings staff are amazing and their preschool feels like home. My daughter loves going, she always has fun. It's a clean, friendly, upbeat place and I am so glad I joined my daughter."
"Earthlings is a great fit for our family. It has everything you would want for your children – it’s extremely reliable, safe, educational, and offers healthy/homemade/organic food choices. The children at Earthlings are very active and engaged. They get to be creative, explore nature, and learn about the world around them. Everyday the kids discuss and vote on the kind of activities they want to do and they are given the opportunity to make choices and work out their differences with their friends. All of this happens under the watchful eye and guidance of dedicated, compassionate professionals who treat the kids with kindness and respect while firmly setting the rules and addressing any challenges that may arise. I feel extremely lucky that we found Earthlings and I know my kids do too."

"As a parent, I entrust my son to the staff at Earthlings Childcare, and I am grateful for the loving care and guidance he receives. Earthlings looks at each child as an individual, with their own strengths and needs. Nathan has been privileged to have awesome teachers who understand his sensitive side, and handle him with kindness. Nathan has learned so much and continues to share with me the great activities that go on each day after school! They are always on the go from nature hikes to playing in the park. It was very important to me to have a daycare that also respected the environment. They have showed my son the importance to reduce, reuse and recycle from their annual Christmas shopping trips at thrift stores. Nathan truly enjoys the food that they prepare as when I make something I usually hear 'Roxy’s is better- ask her where she gets it.' The list goes on around the difference that Earthlings has made in our life. I appreciate the kind people that work there. Nathan says 'He enjoys going there as he has made good friends and enjoys the food. Oh, and he loves the electronics days.'"
