Blue Jays

Age: 18 months - 30 months

Time: 9:00 - 11:30am

Days: Mon - Fri*

Our toddler program runs from 9:00-11:30 AM Monday through Friday.   
This program is designed for exploration.  Our toddlers love to explore and we provide a safe, loving, fun, and educational environment for them to do so.   We provide age-appropriate toys, sensory exploration, and lots of pretend play in this nurturing environment.  Circle time introduces your little one to lots of new songs, stories, and music & movement fun.   Children will gain a sense of independence and form social relationships.  They will continue to develop their language and communication skills and increase their self-awareness.



Age: 2.6 - 4 years old

Time: 9:00 - 11:30am

Days: Mon - Fri*

Our preschool program runs from 9:00-11:30 AM and is a wonderful place for your preschool child to learn and grow.  Playbox makes learning fun.
  During the course of the day, children are encouraged to make choices for themselves, cooperate with others as well as listen and follow directions.  The classroom teachers take the lead from the children and develop circle time and educational activities based on the interests of the children.  There is lots of story time, art activities, science, calendar, and role model playing. The children are encouraged to make friends, share and communicate with their classmates.


Kinder Prep

Age: 2.6 - 5 years old

Time: 11:30am - 3:00pm

Days: Mon - Fri*

Our Kinder-prep program is an excellent choice for children who would benefit from extending their day and your child will thrive in our educational and fun environment.  Our program will help children begin the journey to learn how to read and write.  This program is still play based and we incorporate the children’s interests to expand their learning.  Our afternoon learning program is designed for hands-on fun.


Lunch Bunch

Age: 2.6 - 5 years old

Time: 11:30am - 1:00pm

Days: Mon - Fri*

Children must be aged 2.6 years or older in September to be able to join our lunch bunch program.  Lunch Bunch runs from 11:30AM – 1:00 PM daily.  This is a small group setting where children learn the skills and manners to eat lunch independently.  Children sit, eat, use manners and socialize over lunch.  Children will bring their own lunch bag and encouraged to unpack and pack up their own lunch items. Small group games are played each day and half an hour is spent in the playground.

Playbox Nursery School has a beautiful natural green space for our children to use for outdoor time!


For Parents

Outside of each of the classrooms is a parent board which will keep
parents informed about all school happenings. Routines, snacks, and
current events will be posted here.

- Newsletters and updates are sent out periodically
- Parents are invited to end-of-year celebrations/graduations.
- We have an open-door policy, so if you have any concerns you are
always welcome to come in and speak with the teachers and supervisor at any time.

Freshly Baked Muffins


Due to our schools being Allergy Aware and the Ministry requirements, no home-baked goods are to be brought to school. The school provides healthy, well balanced snacks on a daily basis. We are nut free and allergy aware.

Capoeira Music Instruments

What's Your Line?

If any parents have an area of expertise or a cultural tradition which they'd like to share with the children in any format (talk, visual display, etc.) please speak with the Supervisor. It is exciting for the children to have a "real" artist, musician, nurse, doctor, police officer, etc. at their school.
