A Co-operative School
The GCNS is a non-profit organization in which parents can take an active role in creating an exceptional learning environment for their child. Through ongoing participation, especially through Duty Days (when about once per month you join your child at school), parents have the opportunity to share and be involved in their child’s first school experience. A Board of Directors, made up of volunteer members, manages the school.
One of Central Ottawa's longest running preschools, the Glebe Co-operative Nursery School (GCNS) is the perfect place for your preschool child to blossom. Located in the Glebe Community Centre at 175 Third Avenue, GCNS is a quality learning environment in which children are engaged in activities that promote their intellectual, physical, creative and social development.
Whether a toddler just starting out on their first independent learning experience or junior kindergarten students looking for additional education and care, GCNS has the perfect preschool program for your child!
Our preschool is founded on the proven philosophy that children at the preschool level learn best through ‘play’. Play is the work of children. Through engaging activities, children develop the social, physical, intellectual and creative skills that form the foundation for success in their ongoing education.
The primary goals of the Glebe Co-operative Nursery School programs are:
