Number of Children

Directions & Map

We are fortunate that Dreams Unlimited is within walking distance of many schools (Elm Street, Summerside Intermediate, Parkside, and Greenfield), parks (Memorial, Leger, Notre Dame), community resources (City of Summerside, Wedgewood Manor, Credit Union Place, Harness Racing and horse barns), cycling or safe walking routes (Confederation Trail, Paths, Sidewalks, BMX track) and recreation activities (cycling or walking on a trail, bowling, swimming in a pool or a beach, skating, running on an indoor track, riding your BMX in the BMX park). This list really does go on and on.

Our Philosophy


Whether enrolled in our Summerside daycare, Summerside preschool, Summerside infant program, or the Summerside After School program, we at Dreams Unlimited Childcare Centre believe that we are a part of the community working together with parents/guardians and other community members to give children opportunities to reach their fullest potentials, fostering their strengths and interests by creating an environment where All Dreams Have Worth.

Foundations established in the early childhood years are critical to children’s social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and creative development. In order for children to be valued as active learners with individual developmental needs a strong partnership between the early childhood educators at the centre, parents/guardians, and community members is essential. By working as a team, we are establishing experiences for the children to develop a positive self concept that will remain with them through adulthood.



Dreams Unlimited is owned and operated by Elizabeth Trenholm. Mrs. Trenholm has a B.A. in Psychology from St. Thomas University, NB and a Diploma in Early Childhood Education from Langara College, BC. Mrs. Trenholm has also spent 9 years working in the field before opening her own Centre. Some of Elizabeth Trenholm’s most recent training is: certified yoga instructor for children, 12 hr course in The Project Approach, facilitator of Building Blocks: Strategies for Inclusion, facilitator for Story Sacks Canada, training session in Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale, and 30 hr course in Play & Developmental Appropriate Practice. In addition, Mrs. Trenholm became chair of the East Prince Chapter of the Early Childhood Development Association of P.E.I. in June, 2003.

Team Leadership


Dreams Unlimited uses a team leadership approach where all staff and volunteers are involved in the planning of the centre. Monthly staff meetings are held where ideas are developed and fostered and programming for the next month is based on the needs and interests of the children. If this type of employment or experience interests you, please talk to Elizabeth. For the 0-4 programs (Infant and Toddler/Pre-School), we only hire people who are certified early childhood educators. You do not need to be certified to be hired as a substitute. We do currently have openings on our Sub List.

Whether enrolled in our Summerside daycare, Summerside preschool, Summerside infant program, or the Summerside After School program, we believe that every child -- your child -- deserves the best start in life and that Every Child (like every Dream) Has Worth!
