A Lesson in HISTORY…

The Manotick Cooperative Nursery School was “born” January 1959 on a bitterly cold morning in the basement of Manotick Public School. Fees were set at $15/month with rent at $10/month. The first newsletter reminded parents there was a 7 day exclusion policy for polio. At that time, kindergarten classes had not been established in the local school so Manotick Co-operative Nursery School attempted to fill the needs of both pre-school and kindergarten-aged children.

After extensive fundraising, Manotick Co-operative Nursery School secured its own permanent home in the Manotick Community Center (5572 Doctor Leach Drive) in September 1995.

Today we are one of the longest running and most well-attended preschools in Ottawa. We look forward to yet another 50 years of learning and growing in the community.


Fast-forward to PRESENT DAY…

The Manotick Co-operative Nursery School is a non-profit organization in which parents can take an active role in creating an ideal first school experience for their child from 2 to 4 years of age. Programs are designed to broaden each child’s learning experience through play with group and individual activities and to promote their intellectual, physical, creative and social development.

Our dedicated Early Childhood Education (ECE) teachers provide a safe stimulating environment that allows children to experiment and explore in creative play, music, art, science, math and language. New this year is the introduction of French words and songs each week for all programs.

Whether a toddler is just starting their first learning experience or a kindergarten student looking for additional or alternative education and care, Manotick Cooperative Nursery School has the perfect program for your child!
