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, Multi-Sport Kids, Weekly French classes, special guests, outdoor play in our secure, private playground and much more, children look forward to coming to school each day!
