Like flowers in a well tended garden, children will be given a special place, within a natural environment, where they will be allowed to grow and blossom at their own individual pace. At Children's Garden Nursery School we offer a wide and varied curriculum from pre-school to kindergarten. The curriculum is designed to not only develop and build on the children's academic skills, but also reinforce, strengthen and encourage numerous, lifelong learning skills. School should be a place where a child can find love and respect as well as intellectual stimulation. Our intimate learning environment provides for ample opportunities to do just that.
Students will be able to discover and explore through hands on learning, problem solving, predicting, questioning, risk taking, group learning and communication.We offer a well balanced, comprehensive curriculum.

The inclusion of other important curriculum areas is intended to produce well-rounded students, and is aimed to provide students with the understanding that our world and our education encompass all aspects of development, not just academic successes.
Our Two Afternoon Kindergarten Program is available to students who are enrolled in a morning Kindergarten program at another school. We recognize the experiences each child gains from their other school and use our program as a supplement to their development.
Our Five Half-Day Kindergarten program takes place Monday through Friday and is available for students whose parents have chosen to keep their child in a small group setting to either prepare them for future larger private school enrolment or to continue on in the public school system.
You may ask what is the difference between the Kindergarten Enrichment and the Five Half-Day Kindergarten programs?? The answer is simply. time. The more time we have to teach your child, the more we can delve into all areas of the curriculum and therefore maximize your child's learning potential. If your child attends French Immersion, our program will also support and help build your child's reading, writing and math skills in English.
