Annavale Headstart Nursery School
Posted on 01/23/2024

Annavale Headstart Nursery School is a subsidized full-day headstart program for children aged 18 months until eligibility for Junior Kindergarten entry. We are located in W.E. Gowling School. We offer a toddler program (expected to open in March), and a preschool program.

We believe children learn when they feel secure and have a sense of belonging, when they are engaged, when their healthy development and their growing sense of self is nurtured, and they are supported to communicate and express themselves in many forms.

We value children and their families as active participants and contributors in our program. We believe children learn through play, inquiry and active exploration of their environment. We believe educators are co-learners with children and their families, and strive to develop meaningful and reciprocal relationships with children, and their families.

Annavale Headstart Nursery School provides high quality care for children, which will benefit each child, parent and the larger community. The growth and development of the whole child is the primary aim of our program. A significant emphasis of our program is the development of socio-emotional and self-regulation skills in order to help ensure a successful kindergarten experience. Our team of educators focuses on developing strong, positive, responsive, and reliable relationships with each child and supports each child through his emotional needs throughout the day.

The Annavale Nursery School is licensed under the Ministry of Education, and is part of the Ottawa Carleton Headstart Association of Preschools (OCHAP).

The program takes place between 8:30 to 3:30 p.m. on weekdays, and provides a healthy breakfast and lunch and an afternoon snack, and transportation to and from the program for families in the Carlington area.

This program is funded by The City of Ottawa and Carlington Community Health Centre.
