The Co-operative Nursery School is a part-time, early learning environment for children turning three years of age by December 31st. Delivered at the Centre, this school readiness program focuses on socialization (cooperation, sharing and making friends) and is supported by pre-reading (shape, colours and letter recognition) and pre-math skills (number and shape recognition) –all through play-based activities that get children ready for kindergarten.

My daughter attended Centrepointe Childcare Services’ Nursery School and looked forward to seeing her teachers and friends every day! The Nursery School provided a safe, secure and fun first introduction to school, which provided a smooth transition to full-day junior kindergarten.
What we believe – our philosophy
Children learn through the process of play and experimentation
- The goal of the program is to offer structured activities and opportunities for play that teach children about themselves, others and their environment.
- Our main objective is to assist the child in developing a healthy self-image while offering activities which are challenging and safe.
Children learn by doing
- The nursery school environment evolves to offer new challenges and opportunities as your child develops and acquires skills and interests.
Who we are – our team
Our staff is dedicated to nurturing and guiding your child in our welcoming learning environment. Our teaching team consists of two Early Childhood Educators (ECE) and one Duty Parent. ECEs have years of experience in the nursery school environment and child care field.
Our daily schedule includes activities in both large and small groups with opportunities for structured learning times and free play periods. The children play outside every session (weather permitting, of course). The Early Learning for Every Child Today resource guides our programming.
