Clarkson Co-operative Nursery School is focused on stimulating child-directed programs with creative expression, science, math, reading, music and French. Our teachers encourage children to participate at their own speed providing a happy and balanced experience for all students. Clarkson Co-operative Nursery School is located in two big, bright classrooms and also includes daily programs developing gross motor skills in a large gymnasium. We are conveniently located right next to Whiteoaks Public School.
Our curriculum is designed and led by our teachers. We offer volunteer opportunities for parents to assist in the life of the school that simply aren't possible in the public system.
The co-operative system also fosters a warm community environment where both parents and children make new friends and learn and grow together.
Bright, Spacious Facility
We offer bright, open classrooms full of natural light and a large gymnasium space to allow the children to learn and play.
Our classrooms feature learning centers, imaginative play areas, creative spaces and our learning carpets.
