About Us

Orchard Park Nursery School has been providing a safe and nurturing environment for preschool-aged children in London, Ontario for over 50 years.

Our Story

Orchard Park Nursery School is located on Gainsborough Road, close to Wonderland Road in London, Ontario Canada. Our school welcomes children aged 2 to 5 in a multi-age classroom. The school operates Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, and families have the option of enrolling children 2, 3 or 5 days per week. The school follows the public and separate school calendar year with the exception of no professional development days.
Within the classroom, we have a maximum of 16 children with 2 permanent ECE certified teachers. Additional support staff are present in the classroom depending on the needs of the class. These include support from All Kids Belong and our community volunteers.

Philosophy of Inclusivity

We are an inclusive school that strives to welcome all students. Children with exceptionalities are integrated into our regular program and we partner with All Kids Belong to provide extra support within the classroom as needed. This ensures that the needs of all our children are met.

Working Together. Our School Is A Parent Co-operative

The school is a parent-teacher co-operative administered by a parent board of directors. Parent participation in the school is mandatory in order to maintain lower tuition, encourage parent involvement and to foster a sense of community within the school. 

Parents do not have duty days (where parents assist in the classroom while class is in session). Instead, they choose a job that they are comfortable with such as preparing play-dough or doing school laundry. Any strength, special skill or talent may be used as a contribution to the school. If a parent would like to participate in integral decisions affecting the school, he or she is encouraged to join the school’s parent executive.
