Dawes Road Centres for Early Learning has 6 beautiful and bright classrooms and is located on a quiet street just off Victoria Park Ave. We have an incredibly unique rooftop playground for preschool and a separate outdoor space for toddlers to explore. We grow all kinds of fruits and vegetables on our rooftop garden and the children learn all the aspects of growing food.
