What We Do

We offer the following programs: full day preschool program in Ottawa for 24 children between the ages of 2.5 until they attend kindergarten, extended day program for children attending either junior or senior kindergarten and a school age program for children up to age 12.

Our full-time hours of care are 7:15 AM – 5:30 PM, recognizing that the kindergarten and school age children attend school during the school year. During school holidays, including the summer, the program is offered full-time for all children.

Our programs offer a child-focused curriculum where staff and children work together to expand and develop a wide range of skills and competence based on the emergent curriculum philosophy. An emergent curriculum is one that builds upon the interests of the children. It is often spontaneous and responsive to their immediate interests; topics are driven by the ideas and questions from the children themselves.

Our Team

The onsite Program Coordinator and full time teaching staff all have Early Childhood Education qualifications or a recognized equivalency, are registered with the College of ECE, and hold valid First Aid and CPR. Our staff are dedicated, professional and eager to welcome your child into our fun learning environment.
