Our Eight Program Rooms

We have eight 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.  The Preschool & JK programs operate year-round and summer programs are available to children going into grades 1-6 on a first come, first serve basis.

Nursery School
The Nursery School program is part-time and runs during the school year from 9:15 to 11:15 AM in Room 105. Families do not need to reside in the Jackman School’s English catchment area to enroll in Nursery School and may choose to attend 2, 3 or 5 days per week. 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. 

Enrollment in the Nursery School program does not transfer to enrollment into Jackman Public School or regular Jackman daycare programs.
