In 1981, Louise DeCorso and Chris Finlay realized a dream when they opened their first licensed child care centre at Forest Hill Public School.

This was the beginning of Owl Child Care Services of Ontario.

Over the next 30 years, Owl's business grew and expanded as centres were added or relocated.

From a small private company to a non-profit, registered charity, Owl quickly grew into one of the largest centre-based child care agencies in the Waterloo Region.

From the beginning, the focus was on quality child care that enables Learning, Caring, Sharing and Growing!
