Funshine Early Learning Centre ("FUNSHINE") is a non-profit, charitable organization. We are very proud to be in operation for over 30 years, with a bright future ahead.


Funshine officially opened in April of 1988 offering 35 licensed childcare spaces. Today, we offer 40 licensed spaces; 8 infant and 32 preschool. Funshine is Virden’s only licensed childcare facility, offering quality childcare for ages 12 weeks to 6 years.

The Oxford Street location was renovated in 2020 to upgrade and enlarge the kitchen, brighten up the space with neutral colours and more natural light, and a beautiful deck with an exterior door from the infant room was installed for easier access to outside play.

This location is licensed for:

  • 32 preschool spaces

  • 8 infant spaces


Thanks to the partnership of land with Fort La Bosse School Division in December of 2012, planning and design of this new facility began in conjunction with on-going fundraising events. The 6000 sq. ft. facility opened in July of 2019.
This facility has natural light in every room, a fully equipped kitchen to prepare healthy meals & snacks, classrooms that promote learning and development, and an office & staff room for planning and preparation of early learning activities.

This location is licensed for:

  • 54 preschool spaces

  • 12 infant spaces


In 2011 Funshine started a preschool program out of the local elementary school, Mary Montgomery.

Following the successful launch of our preschool program, Funshine expanded our services and started a school age program. This program provides care before and after school as well as full time care during the summer months.

This location is licensed for:

  • 17 nursery/preschool spaces

  • 15 school age spaces
