John Ross Robertson Child Centre is a school-based non-profit child care and nursery school in Toronto, Ontario Canada offering high-quality Early Childhood Education (ECE) programs.

Our centre is located inside John Ross Robertson Junior Public School at 130 Glengrove Avenue in the Toronto District School Board.

Our flexible nursery school and pre-school programs prepare young children for life-long learning and active participation in the community at large. Our before and after school programs for school age children are engaging, fun and complementary to children’s school experience. Our program is adapted from an "Emergent Curriculum" pedagogy with a great deal of positive input from the children themselves guided by a dedicated team of innovative, creative experienced and fun-loving Registered Early Childhood Educators and Early Childhood Assistants

The first couple of days of school can be stressful for new parents and children alike.  ​​Please rest assured that our highly experienced staff will be giving all of your children an orientation or review of where they need to be. Child centre staff will ensure that kindergarten children in before and after school child care are escorted outside or to their respective classrooms.  For the first couple of days of school, staff will make every effort to assist last year’s SK children who have transitioned to grade one, by being present in the school yard until the bell rings, in the morning and in the hallways in the afternoon. Usually by the 2nd or 3rd day of school, most school age children (Grades 1-6) will be able to check in to their respective child care room without assistance from staff.

We encourage parents and guardians to review the materials available on this site and to make a point of reading or downloading our Calendar and Parent Handbooks which contain a volume of information about the centre as well as significant policies and procedures governing our operation.  Here’s wishing all of our students, parents, guardians and teachers a safe and healthy year filled with adventure, learning, friendship and fun.
