All materials and snacks are included in the cost of the program. Choose from morning or afternoon programs.

Nurturing childhood development
Encouraging the joy of discovery
an there be a better thrill than the enthusiasm on your child’s face as they discover something new? When your child rushes to your arms to tell you how much fun their day was, you know you’ve made the right choice. At Pebble Lane we get stories like that all the time, and we love to hear them. Nurturing your child’s development in every area: creatively, emotionally and intellectually is what we’re all about.

Our classrooms are filled with a kaleidoscope of personalities. Your child has different skills and interests from others in their classroom. Whether music, art, creating with building blocks, we identify those interests, incorporating new ideas that help your child grow and learn in a fun and creative way.

Creative Self-Expression

A Wonderful Environment Where Children Can Learn And Grow
Respect. Responsibility. Learning.

Early childhood learning is so much more than A-B-C and 1-2-3. It involves exploration, discovery and play. Being wide-eyed and enthralled opens the mind to math and science in a fun way! Equally important to your child’s growth is the development of social skills: respect, responsibility and community.

Imagine. Create. Participate.

Our approach is based on the internationally recognized Reggio method and has been around for decades. It’s based on an understanding that each child processes information in their own unique way. Tapping into this student-centered education keeps your child engaged and promotes a deeper quest for knowledge. It’s all about self-guided learning.

Grow. Explore. Discover.

Every child grows through exploration and discovery. We encourage and support their curiosity. With guidance from our teachers, your child is empowered to share their thoughts and ideas in their own way and learn how to move forward to realize their potential.

Learning through creative discovery
The excitement of a child discovering something new on their own is unmatched.  Our teachers build on your child’s journey of self-discovery to explore what else is possible with colours, shapes and more. Imagination has no limits and each child brings their own creativity to the classroom.
Fun-filled day
Jump, climb, run, play.  The unbridled energy that’s a huge part of every child needs a release.  We have that covered.  Keeping young bodies healthy through properly supervised activity is a major ingredient to learning.  And the social aspect of engaging with others is equally important.  Through play, children learn co-operation, respect and a sense of belonging.
Personalized creativity
Creativity comes in many forms.  Pebble Lane educators identify your child’s unique form of expression.  We try to hit all the right notes with your child by recognizing different creative approaches.  Encouraging natural abilities is a big part of the learning process.

Every child deserves a chance to thrive and excel. Pebble Lane was created to lift children up, build their confidence, help them to push limits and build a foundation of excitement about learning. Our core values are kindness, caring and respect. I also believe in supporting women in the workplace. Pebble Lane is a place where staff can reach their goals and achieve their full potential. Children are so important. How we choose to teach them in the early years can completely change their lives.
