Our Approach

Oriole is a co-operative nursery school, centrally located at Yonge and St Clair. We offer a half day program for children aged 2 to 4, which emphasizes learning through play and mastering independence in a stimulating and social environment.

Our Junior class provides a wonderful first school experience, focusing on social relationships, following routines and building understanding of and empathy for others. Children enrolled in the Junior class may participate 3, 4 or 5 mornings a week.

Our Senior class provides a strong foundation for full day Kindergarten by teaching effective communication skills, encouraging creative thinking and developing problem solving skills. Children enrolled in the Senior class attend 5 mornings a week.

Oriole children have an outstanding "first school" experience in an enriched learning environment. With field trips, science, cooking, music and dance classes, Sportplay, Weekly French classes, special guests, outdoor play in our secure, private playground and much more, children look forward to coming to school each day!
