When the dedicated professionals at St-Thomas Daycare in Ottawa asked us to be part of their renovation project, we were up for the job.


At Heartwood, we understand that children need a safe and friendly environment to succeed and grow. With attention to detail and craftsmanship, we help build a modern and quality daycare.


Custom cabinetry was needed in sizes to suit the children’s ergonomic needs.Beautiful cubbies in dark wood panels and blue doors to gather the children’s belongings built in the perfect size for them to manage. They can hang their coats and sweaters on the hooks while storing other items below in a convenient drawer. Above is more storage for parents and teachers to access.

The blue and wood panelling is continued throughout the day care and lends to the space a modern zen feeling. We built custom vanities to accommodate the small and the tall so that everyone has easy access to wash their hands.

A nice prep area was built to access water and a sink. The dark wood panelling is carried throughout the daycare and has the feel of warm furniture rather than plain sterile cabinets often found in various facilities.

Heartwood worked closely with the allotted budget and this 10 000 square foot school. We accomplished a beautiful harmony of appropriate accessibility with a calm friendly feeling for these children to interact, learn and play.
