Our Approach to Child Care

begins with building healthy relationships

We believe that relationships matter the most in the life of a developing child. To reach their true potential, children ought to be surrounded by caregivers that understand their individual needs so they are free to explore their surroundings, push their own boundaries and express their most authentic selves.



Healthy relationships with caregivers matter the most in the life of a developing child.  



Children need the right conditions to develop into the best versions of themselves.



Children thrive under the guidance of caregivers that truly understand them.



Children need to practice being in the driver's seat of life to experience growth.

We are a group 30 month - 5 year old childcare program

Our Program

Nest Early Learning is a full-day childcare program that recognizes the importance of child-centred programming while taking into account the diverse needs of a busy family.  At Nest, we believe that growth, maturation and development occur best when a child feels at home in their surroundings.  As healthy attachments with caregivers and environment are formed, a child's sense of curiosity is nurtured and the skills associated with school readiness follows.


There is no greater task in raising young children than creating the conditions to protect their space and time for play


A right relationship is one in which a child accepts the adult as their caretaker and follows their lead

We believe in the philosophy of Emergent Curriculum


We want to make your life as a parent easier

"We finally found a childcare centre that fits our needs!"

My son is absolutely in love with Nest! Their educational philosophy is Emergent Curriculum and this self guided approach to learning fits well with his personality. Aside from their outstanding facility, the teachers at Nest are truly the reason that my son adores his school. Yay!

Brenda K.

All the staff at Nest have shown a genuine passion for childcare and the impact that they have made on our daughter is wonderful. We are so fortunate to have found a centre like this.

Angela C.

The educators at Nest played an integral part in the growth, development and learning of my child, in the two years that he attended Nest.  My child truly enjoyed his time there, and we are grateful for the role that the Nest educators played in his development, and the love and patience that they exhibit towards all the children day in and day out.  Each one of them truly treats each and every child like their own.

Christine L.

Over the past few years, we have watched our two daughters thrive at Nest. The teachers are genuinely caring and this is the most important quality that my husband and I were looking for when choosing a preschool program for our children.  They took the time to understand our girls' different personalities and were able to draw out their love of learning, which will be an invaluable life skill.
