“I’m reminded every day that we’ve made the right decision – when I pick up my child, with a smile on her face, excited to tell me about her day”   

~ Current Atelier Kids Family

Are we really that different?

O,ur families say that we are not just a daycare but rather happiness, empathy, care, communication and love all wrapped together to offer peace of mind.

Our centre is homelike but offers an imaginative environment where you and your child can make meaningful connections . Our natural playscape and urban garden continue to the fuel the fire of imagination.

We are a place where your child skips to every day, because they are having so much fun learning.

So feel free to exhale – you’ve finally found the best place for your child’s early learning experience.

Our educators encourage wonder and exploration

Our educators co-learn and collaborate with each child. Rather than dictating what children will learn, we help them explore so they can develop their own understanding of the world around them. And they do it all in a warm and caring environment.

Atelier (Noun): a workshop, studio or laboratory

Our Toronto daycare centre is a place for discovery, experimentation and creation. Ours is a safe environment conceived to fuel your child’s imagination, allowing them to learn, create, encounter, and connect with other children.

Will they be ready for school? 

Our programs are inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy of Italy and follow the inquiry-based curriculum document “How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years”, outlined by the Ministry of Education. This ensures an optimal transition and improved outcomes for Kindergarten and beyond.

Find Rhythm in Nature 

Our daycare centres are located in Toronto’s High Park neighbourhood, just a short walk away from High Park. So much is based on the natural world, and providing these opportunities for our youngest citizens to engage and respect the environment seems like a great place to start. Our natural playgrounds were created to get kids outside to create an urban garden, explore fallen logs, sandboxes, tree stumps and with lots of room to roam freely.
