What Parents Say
Children’s garden has transformed our son James from being frustrated with school to loving school and accomplishing things like reading, writing and confidence in a short 6 months. He is always excited to go and loves his teachers

Children’s Garden Nursery School is a delightful place to send your pre-schooler. It is well-organized with fantastic facilities and friendly teachers who really help the children learn the skills they will need to enter kindergarten. The teachers help the children learn how to socialize, how to be independent and how to play in a group setting. My son loved the music and French classes, the Hallowe’en party, Christmas concert and visit to Riverdale Farm, and the many fun events the school organized. His mother loved the birthday poster the teachers made, and the songs he came home singing!

We feel lucky to have found Children’s Garden Nursery School. Both our boys attended preschool and kindergarten there and we’re happy they did. The schools approach to academics at a young age has given them a great head start. The small school and class sizes create a safe and welcoming environment and it’s obvious the staff care about the well being and growth of the children. We highly recommend Children’s Garden to anyone looking for a positive start to their children’s education.

It is a great privilege that our son was able to attend CGNS for part of preschool and kindergarten. We had recently moved back to Toronto and registered him after the gestalt feeling that this school would be the right fit for our family. Our previous day-care was play based, while it offered a safe and loving environment, we didn’t feel that they were priming him with the scholastic skills needed to succeed in grade school. CGNS was able to mend the gap with its robust, but supportive, academic curriculum strategically camouflaged in play-based activities. We are ecstatic to share that our son was accepted to our first-choice school during first rounds of admission.

I can unequivocally say the teachers and staff are incredible, a robust curriculum is offered, and our daughter absolutely loves to learn and attend each and every day. She’s an avid learner, and the teachers work with each respective child to not only accommodate them, but to challenge them.
- Michael Packham
I love Children’s Garden and have had such a positive experience. Low class numbers, extremely vigilant in COVID precautions, a loving approach to learning and they gear the curriculum to where your child is in their education journey. What a great place! I only wish I knew about this school for my first child. Highly recommend.

My daughter spent 3 amazing years at Children’s Garden Nursery School. It’s such a safe and nurturing environment for the children, and offers a real sense of community. The director, teachers and support staff truly love and excel at early childhood education and they really tailor their approach to support and grow the children into kind, respectful, curious and happy individuals.
