Book a school visit or come to an Open House
Island in the Spring! We know that Spring has sprung on the Island because the first
snowdrops and crocuses were spotted a few weeks ago and there are hundreds of
migrating birds flitting about. Some of them will stay but others will go further
north to eat up blackflies and other interesting pursuits. The children are demanding
to get outside to our playground, and we are happy to oblige them. The playground is
the best place to be when there are buckets full of rainwater and mucky sand to make
“birthday cakes.” This year we are getting back into the garden and we hope to produce
some flowers and vegetables. Our parents will get a chance to join the children this
weekend when we have a spring Work Party.

Our Open House is happening April 30 and we welcome parents interested in Fall
registration to come and visit the facility. Our Open Houses are a good way for the whole
family to visit the Island. We give tours of the classrooms and you can ask us anything
that you like about our program, menu, policies, and philosophy. We love to talk about
what we do! click here for more info about our program

We also welcome parents to come and visit the school during school hours. The best time to visit is Monday to Thursdays in the morning. We have you take the same ferry as the
children so you can see the routine that the children experience each day. Please note
that a visit to the Centre is a requirement to be on our waiting list.  If you would
like to book a school visit please call us at   (416)203-1017  or click here  to send an email request.
