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.


June 29th, 2020 updates;

Childcare Re-Opening for Schoolhouse Playcare is starting today! Our Grey Street, St James school, and St Martin school locations are open today. Schoolhouse families have been contacted over the past several weeks for enrollment. Some new protocols include enhanced cleaning, screening upon entry, smaller groups of children, social distancing, increased hand washing, groups distancing from other groups, engaging in lots of outdoor time, fewer materials in rooms, etc. We are following guidelines put into place by the Ministry and our local Health Unit.

June 9th, 2020 Updates;

The Ministry has announced that childcare can reopen on June 12th, 2020. Many factors have to be taken into consideration in preparation for reopening. Please note that we are working diligently to get our programs ready. We will contact Schoolhouse families once we have more information. Thank you again for your patience!

In regards to your child's personal belongings, unfortunately at this time we do not have the staffing to gather all their items and coordinate a time to pick them up. We will set something up in the near future when we re-open all of our locations.

May 20th, 2020- Move to the new school;

Our grey street location will not be moving into Elsie MacGill School in the first two weeks of July 2020. This has been cancelled until further notice.

We will continue to update all of our families as soon as we know more information.

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding during these unknown times.
