About Us


The Bonnyville and District Daycare Society became incorporated as a registered not-for-profit society in Alberta on November 23, 2011 and opened for business in April 2012. Effective September 1, 2022, Bonnyville and District Daycare and Bonnyville Youth Club merged to form The Ohana Centre. We operate from the Bonnyville Parent Child Center.
