St. Francis of Assisi Classroom


P.R.Y.D.E. St. Francis of Assisi is a full site offering care from the ages of 2.5 to 12 years. We currently have a preschool program along with our before and after school rooms.
Our energetic and caring educators provide a play-based learning environment, where children are valued as individuals and as active and competent contributors, with their own interests, goals and points of view. This, in turn, provides engaging experiences for children to explore ideas, investigate their theories, and interact with offers in play.
We strive to engage with families and to support each child within the context of their family; recognizing that family and child well-being are inextricably linked.

Kindergarten and School Age spaces are available, while Preschool has a wait list.

Contact Centre to inquire.

Reminders for parents

Contact the Centre directly for current fees. Registration fee is $50.00 per family. A receipt will be issued every year and should be kept for income tax purposes.

P.R.Y.D.E. Learning Centres Inc. is a non-profit organization; therefore fees are reviewed on an annual basis each year by the Board of Directors. Subsidized services may be available for eligible families through Durham Region Children’s Services.
