Everyone is Welcome

North End Co-operative Preschool is a registered non-profit charitable organization that has been in operation since February 1976. In our child care program, every child belongs and is welcome. We provide a fully inclusive atmosphere that supports each child’s development. For additional support needs, a Resource Consultant can be accessed through our program.

Safety is our first concern

The school is licensed and inspected by the Ministry of Education – Child Care and Early Years Act 2014 and inspected by the Niagara Regional Health Department and the St. Catharines Fire Services.

Be Part of Our Community

North End Co-op Preschool strives to get parents involved in their child’s education. We offer parents the opportunity to engage in the classroom on a volunteer basis where parents help supervise children, perform housekeeping tasks, and assist with snacks. All parents commit to fundraising, committee participation, and have the opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors.
