Our Nine Program Rooms

We have 9 distinct programs operating during the school year serving children 3-12 years of age. The Board of Directors reserves the right to change the room offerings based on the needs of the Daycare. Summer camp programs are available on a first come, first serve basis to children from  Grades 1-6. Children in Preschool & JK stay in their program rooms from September through the summer. The Daycare makes every effort to accommodate children and provide services year after year; however, due to many considerations including legislated ratios, staffing, balance of age groupings, etc., the Daycare may need to change room offerings or steams.


Nursery School

The Nursery School program is part-time and runs during the school year from 9:00 to 11:30 AM 5 days a week in Room 105.  This program is designed for 3-year-old children and focuses on socialization and learning play skills. There are maximum 16 children in this program per day.

The Nursery School program does not operate on any Toronto District School Board (TDSB) declared holidays, P.A. Days, March Break or during the summer. Unlike our daycare programs, there is no residency requirement for the Nursery School program.

Children in the Nursery School program are not in the Daycare stream and therefore are given no consideration for admission to the Daycare’s JK B &A program the following year.
