About Us

Children’s Garden Nursery School has been providing excellent programming for families in the Toronto area since 1986. Preschool to Grade Three programs are offered in our one and only location at Bayview and Broadway. 

We are excited to launch our new Virtual Preschool Program – CGNS Buds. There are so many preschoolers who have not been able to join in a traditional classroom setting due to the pandemic. Our primary objective is to help prepare these preschool children (3 years of age) for kindergarten next year. We can all agree that virtual learning is not the ideal situation, however, based on our many years of teaching experience, we feel confident that your child will have so much fun learning new skills while connecting with their teacher and fellow classmates online. Come join us!

Virtual Learning Teacher

Lesley Fletcher


My name is Lesley and I am thrilled to be joining Children’s Garden as the virtual preschool teacher. This is an exciting new venture not only for the school but for me as well!

I am a registered Early Childhood Educator with over 25 years experience working with young children and their families in a variety of settings. I strive to create a fun and engaging learning environment where children are free to express themselves; a place where their ideas and opinions are always welcome and valid. I believe in helping develop the whole child not only academically but socially, emotionally, and physically as well.

Each day brings children new opportunities for growth; chances to learn new things, maintain friendships, improve already learned skills, make mistakes and face challenges. 

I look forward to “meeting” some new children and their families as we navigate this virtual learning adventure together!
