To The Schoolhouse Playcare Centre

We provide a safe home-like environment where children can grow as unique individuals. We strive to work in partnership with you and your child to ensure a positive learning experience.

We enhance each child's level of development by striving to meet their individual needs, helping them reach their fullest potential, as well as respecting the family's uniqueness.

Our program implements the Reggio Emilia Approach to learning. We are committed to a holistic approach in providing quality care for all children.
