(30 months and up; at our Brock Street House)

We offer both full-time and part-time Preschooler  spaces (min. 2 days per week).


We offer a School Readiness program to help prepare children for “big school”. Using the Preschool Program Development Instrument (PPDI), developed by Kingston’s Child Care Network, and program planning based on the Early Learning for Every Child Today (ELECT) document, staff observe children individually and in group settings during all activities to assess levels of development (fine motor, gross motor, language, cognitive, spatial, and social/emotional) thus allowing staff to gear our program to the specific and individual needs of enrolled children.
