Welcome to a Tiny Lab

A Tiny Lab offers licensed, high quality, child care to children between 18 months and 5 years in Central Halifax.

Our Program

What We Value

We believe in emergent learning through play, exploration and discovery. An unhurried childhood. Respect for our community, environment and each other. Whole child development and life-long learning.

Our Philosophy

Let's Eat!

We know that there is no better preparation for play and learning than a good meal and snacks. Our vegetarian menu reflects a conscious effort to provide the best food, using healthy, whole, local, seasonal and organic foods whenever possible. Our fruits and veggies are purchased locally as much as possible; our eggs are local and free-range. Snacks and lunch are served family style, with children being exposed to a variety of foods, tastes and textures.

Food Manifesto!


With┬áso many requests to share our recipes, we decided to that it’s best to share as wide and far as possible! Check our our kitchen blog for recipes posted weekly.

Kitchen Blog


Our days are filled with lots of questions, challenges, frustrations and ideas from our children and their families. Our Staff reflect on issues as experienced in our centre and share resources that we’ve found helpful.
