A Designated NB Early Childhood Learning Centre


Welcome and thank you for your interest in our licensed child care and learning programs at Start SMART Family Learning Centre Inc.

Conveniently located within Keswick Valley Memorial School, we have been respectfully serving the Keswick and Burtts Corner areas since January 2011.

In addition to our partial and full day programs, with an extended hours of care option, for Preschoolers, we also offer limited spaces for After School programs for school-aged children.

At Start SMART, everyone believes that childhood is an amazing time in which all children should have a chance to explore their world with support from their Parents and friends.

Our team of teachers believes in the potential of each individual child as they develop in unique ways at their own pace. Our Early Childhood Educators offer developmentally appropriate engagements which enhance early learning through playful discovery engagements, following the NB Early Care and Learning Curriculum Framework, on a daily basis.

Our Board Members generously volunteer/invest in management support to benefit the children and their families by-providing access to affordable care  in our local communities.

Start SMART has been recognized as one of the first Designated Licensed Childcare Facilities in the province, and as such, can offer middle income parents/guardians improved access to the NB subsidy for their preschool childcare expenses.

You may contact us at and google NB Early Childhood Services Portal to checkout your eligibility for the Designated Centre Parent Subsidy.
