At Simcoe Street Montessori School we strive to provide our children with the strongest possible foundation from which to grow and develop into confident, caring and successful adults.

Simcoe Street Montessori School’s philosophy is that each child is unique. A child’s individuality is demonstrated by the pace in which they master the sequential stages of development. Simcoe promotes the importance of communication, and their students are encouraged to express themselves. Each play or work opportunity is viewed as a chance for the child to make decisions and explore. Offering an enriched environment that is enjoyable, safe, and nurturing, the school celebrates multiculturalism and diversity, promoting self[1]esteem and the recognition of others. Simcoe Street Montessori School is pleased to offer an Extended Care Program, that includes arts, outdoor play, singing, and dancing.

At La Citadelle Daycare, we believe all children possess hidden talents and an enormous potential to learn, achieve, and grow. We are delighted to tap into the capabilities and talents of the children entrusted to us to develop their curiosity, initiative, and independence while providing them with a substantial program of play and study in a nurturing, holistic, and safe environment where they can develop with joy, enthusiasm, and determination. One of a kind, it combines all the elements of a traditional Daycare while providing academic learning as the first part of a 4-year sequential Kindergarten program at La Citadelle. In addition to incorporating the rudiments of the French and English languages, it provides the children with the ability to acquire the knowledge of Mathematics, Sciences, Arts, and Music and the skills of reading and writing in cursive.

Nestled in the heart of Toronto’s historic St. Lawrence community, St. Lawrence Co-operative Day Care has three locations serving children age 3 months to 12 years.

We believe children learn through play; which is the cornerstone where children have the opportunity to actively explore and learn through materials and their environment. Play facilitates the development of the whole child including, social, emotional, physical, cognitive and creative abilities. In order for children’s play to be meaningful, the experiences need to reflect each child’s skills and needs.

We are committed to offering a high quality, child centered program that provides for children’s success in learning regardless of their race, ethnicity, financial situations, gender and family structure. All children are entitled to the same level of service, care and hours of operation. The program involves children, parents, teachers working together in an anti-bias and integrated environment. This teamwork promotes children’s abilities to resolve conflicts, understand mutual respect, gain independence and build self-esteem.

Review from a parent – “ I send both of my children, ages 4 and 2, to Simply Smart Century location. I am very happy with the school because I feel that the teachers are very interested in the growth of the students. There is a strong emphasis on learning how to do tasks independently and being kind. It has been a joy to see them come out every day and describe with great excitement what they have learned and who they have interacted with. I find that while both of my kids are very different from one another, they are very well cared for and their different needs are always met with a positive attitude.”
