About Us

Tots Academy Child Care Society was established the early 1980s. We evolved from a small Head Start program to a leading licensed childcare provider serving the communities of East Hants. We now have two locations – Enfield and Lantz – and provide Before and After School Programming. With the support and guidance of a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors and a committed and passionate leadership team, Tots Academy provides high-quality and inclusive childcare services designed to ensure a positive experience for each child in our care.

Our Mission

Our mission at Tots Academy is to provide access to high quality childcare services to the communities of East Hants. We are committed to fostering a safe and inclusive environment where every child can thrive. Through our dedication to quality care and collaboration with families, we aim to empower children to reach their full potential while supporting working families in our community.

Our Commitment


We are committed to continued learning and professional development. Child care is our industry and we strive to be the best. We utilize and lean on each other’s skill sets to provide the best possible experience for children in our care. 


We want our children and families to feel welcomed, respected, and connected. We are here to serve you. We strive to provide an environment that is accessible and equitable for all who enter our centres.

Community Engagement 

It takes a community to raise a child – and to support a childcare centre – and we know it. We believe firmly in both giving back to the community and engaging in the community as a whole. We are committed to making East Hants a better place through community engagement and support.

Happy & Healthy Environment

As an employer we have a duty to provide an excellent work environment to our employees. We are dedicated to fostering a safe work environment that is fun, collaborative, and rewarding. When employees are happy in their workplace, the children we care for feel it.
