The toddler child care program follows a Montessori philosophy as it creates a stimulating environment for the child to develop both fine and gross motor dexterity, competence, practical life and provides for social interactions with other children.


As a toddler child care program we follow the guidelines of the Days Nursery Act governed by the Ministry of Child and Youth Services of Ontario. Our student to care giver ratios are maintained to provide excellent attention to each child and small classes for both the senior and junior toddler programs.

School is closed for 2 weeks in December for Holiday Vacation, 1 week in March for School Break, and all Ottawa Carleton School Board statutory holidays and professional development days, and 2 days preceding the return of the standard school year. Please see school calendar for more details.
