Trusted Childcare and Nursery School in Pickering and Ajax

Colwell Nursery School & Kindergarten offers a safe and enriching environment where your child can truly learn to thrive. As a trusted childcare and nursery school in Pickering and Ajax, we not only prepare your children to succeed in school later, but we provide fundamental values to foster their growth as individuals with unique personalities. Our child care services follow a personalized approach with every child to facilitate their development. While a preschool only accommodates children in their immediate years preceding to formal schooling, as a nursery, we have a place for all children between the ages of 18 months to 12 years. We focus both on academics and non-academic activities and values.
