Childcare & Nursery School in Pickering

Register Your Child for Childcare in Pickering

Imagine a normal day at home. It’s a late afternoon, and you and your child just finished playing in the yard. With some wheedling, you both tidy up a bit, and you start dinner. But after a few minutes, your child looks up at you and says three words you never want to hear put together: “I am bored.”


Intelligent children can get bored easily because they can’t find enough mental stimulation. While you do fun activities at home, your child might benefit from some extra attention at a premier daycare in Pickering, Colwell Nursery School and Kindergarten.

How Can Our Nursery School in Pickering Benefit You?

Nursery schools do more than provide babysitting services. They focus on enriching and preparing your child for school. With over 40 years of experience, Colwell Nursery School and Kindergarten provides these services throughout the Durham region. Parents look to us to help their children get ready for school or make the adjustment once they enroll in their classes.


We offer varied schedules to ensure your child can attend and receive these benefits:

  • Full-day and half-day programs
  • Before and after school care

Please visit Our Programme page for more detailed information and click on the bulletin board to see our current classroom activities.

The Teacher Difference

Whatever programme you choose, you can depend on trained, professional care. With our staff alongside them, your children will be safe, learn—and have some fun along the way.


You can meet the staff and see our school when you call 905-839-0074. We will show you and your child around our classrooms and introduce you to other Colwell parents.

Private Kindergarten…What’s the Difference?

The bottom line is that a low student to teacher ratio means personalized attention and at a time when developmental gaps between children of the same age will never be greater in your child’s academic career, personalized attention is crucial. Read more.
