Learning Through Play

Our nursery school offers play-oriented learning in a nurturing environment, which prepares kids for long-term academic success.

Colwell Nursery is the place where Knowledge, Wisdom and Empowerment for all our children begin.

Trusted Nursery School and Childcare in Pickering and Ajax

Children shine brightest when they play and learn, and Colwell Nursery School & Kindergarten aims to do that with their nursery school and childcare in Pickering. Having three decades of experience, children from diverse backgrounds are enrolled in our school. This helps us provide a conducive environment where your children can truly thrive. We not only prepare your children to succeed in school, but we instil fundamental values in them to foster their growth as individuals. Our childcare services in Pickering follow a personalized approach with every child to facilitate their development. While a preschool only accommodates children in their immediate years preceding formal schooling, as a nursery, we have a place for all children between the age of 18 months to 12 years. We focus on both academic and non-academic activities and values. 

We understand that selecting a daycare for your child is not instant. Therefore, we also provide an onsite tour. You can fill up a form and come with your little one and clear your concerns before enrolling in one of our programs.
