Preschool - Upper Canada Child Care Skip To Content


Fostering engagement, expression, well-being,
and belonging is our priority.

About the program

Through positive group interactions, our program encourages growing self-expression, social skills, and resilience.

Our educators invite ever-curious preschoolers to participate in programs which are based on their emerging interests. Programs offer playful opportunities to explore literacy, numeracy, science, nature, and creative arts.


Daily outdoor play in all kinds of weather is important for health and well-being. Groups also venture into their communities and take part in seasonal Forest School visits.

Parents can expect a flexible group routine with periods set aside for play, nourishment, toileting, and rest. Two nutritious snacks and a hot lunch are provided. We restrict foods brought from home or restaurants in order to protect the children in our programs with life-threatening allergies.
