Serving Toronto families for more than 40 years, our education experts offer standard-setting programs for infants, toddlers and pre-school children. We want children to be learners, to love to learn, to be part of a community of learners, and to grow into awesome adults who can make a difference in the world.

Reminder: Rainy Weather

September is sure to be rainy!  We go outside as often as we can, including in the rain, unless there is an extreme weather alert suggesting flood-like downpours.  Our playground has some shady areas and some covered areas in case of inclement weather.

Please remember that playing in the rain is fun and does not make children sick.

We ask that your child is appropriately dressed for all weather conditions.  Please have a raincoat, splash pants, rain hat or hood, waterproof mittens, and rain boots in your child’s cubby at all times.  As always, please ensure your child’s belongings are labeled with their name to avoid confusion.

Thank you for your help in having your child appropriately dressed for the weather conditions each day so they can fully enjoy the outdoors!

It is heartening to see the children pick up French books independently and recreate the stories they have read.
