A Note from the Registrar

The first five years of a child's life are filled with incredible growth and development. Your child is changing daily, constantly learning new words, mastering new skills, and grasping new concepts. We at the Strathcona Nursery School are honored that you are considering sharing your children with us at this exciting and important time in their lives.

The Strathcona Nursery School accepts children aged 30 months to five years, and offers a number of programs to meet your needs. Some of our most popular features are:

  • Two creative and dynamic teachers, who foster a nurturing setting in the classroom based on warmth, care, and trust.
  • A positive and respectful environment allows children to explore and understand their surroundings at their own pace.
  • Mixed age classes allow younger siblings to participate in the same class.
  • 2 ½ hour long sessions include outdoor play time, story time, free play, art, and music time, where children are encouraged to be creative with their own ideas and skills
  • Flexibility in session times - chose morning or afternoon sessions based on your schedule.
  • Free drop-in sessions provided during the school year for those who wish to come with their child and observe a session in the classroom. (Phone first for availability)

Strathcona Nursery School is a parent cooperative playschool that began operating in 1978. As a cooperative, we rely heavily on parent involvement to keep our school up and running. Parent contribution, through volunteer obligations and board or committee participation, is mandatory and vital to the operation and health of the school. In addition, there are regular duty parent for morning classes to ensure a low adult to child ratio. These duty parent days also allow you to spend time with your children in a relaxed classroom environment, and to share in their learning experiences. Parents are encouraged, though not required, to participate in afternoon classes. 

For further information or to register, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to speaking with you.
