Child's Paradise Day Care Centre has received approval to be a 'Bus Stop' for the Schools in the Town of Renfrew. As such, parents of children attending the schools within the Town limits (St. Thomas, Our Lady of Fatima, Queen Elizabeth and Central Public) can request pick-up and drop-off at this location. 

The emphasis of the Kindergarten Program is on school readiness, while gaining the necessary skills in all areas of development: social, emotional, cognitive, language, and physical.

The staff uses a variety of means to prepare children for school, including consistent routines and transitions, as well as materials for children to develop cognitive and language abilities and experiences to grow in their social and emotional skills.

There are practical play areas in the Kindergarten Room, including the housekeeping area, quiet book area, block and construction play area, and art creative areas. The children are learning how to blend everyday learning into fun activities and events.
