Colwell Nursery School & Kindergarten is the home away from home for preschool kids aged from 2.5 years old to 6 years old. We offer quality preschool care in Pickering to small children that allows them to have fun and acquire social skills through positive interactions with teachers and other children of the same age group. Our curriculum for preschoolers enables kids to enter schools with rich vocabularies, pre-reading skills and strong basic math skills.


You can rest assured your child will be off to an excellent start with our full-time and part-time childcare in Pickering and Ajax with us. Call us to book a guided tour of our facility and enroll your child in our preschool today.



For many working parents, finding an engaging environment for their child can be challenging. While babysitters and other caretakers can certainly supervise your child, they can't provide the benefits our part-time childcare in Pickering provides, such as:


      Structured schedule: At Colwell Nursery School & Kindergarten, we know that children benefit from a structured environment. We organize numerous activities that help them develop social, educational, and emotional skills.


      Interaction with peers: What sets daycares apart is providing a dynamic social environment where children can interact with their peers. They might not be able to do so at home, missing out on the advantages these social interactions can offer.


      Easier transition to educational environments: Our daycare centre in Pickering will gently introduce your child to their future academic years. Eventually, they will feel more comfortable in educational settings with collective activities.


      Safety, security and comfort: Lastly, knowing that your child is in a safe and secure environment while you're at work can give you peace of mind. We have years of experience in taking care of children of varied age groups. We offer nap times, meals and more.
