  • At Lori Garden Centre, teachers work very hard to build a loving relationship with the children. The teachers are very professional and phenomenal. Lori Garden Centre puts your mind at ease by creating a nurturing learning environment. My daughter is in the infant class and the teachers are doing an amazing job to assist her. Thanks!
