Our Busy Bear room ranges in age from children approximately 2-3 years of age. Our programming includes many opportunities for children to explore the world around them by providing developmentally appropriate open-ended activities and play experiences. Music, space for movement, stimulation, sensory opportunities and access to open-ended play resources are integral components of our Busy Bear programming. For young children it is important to offer highly tactile and varied experiences so that they can investigate them using their primary way of interacting with the world; the senses.
At Little Owl, we’re mom’s too! We know the transition for parents is just as real as the transition is for the children. We want to ensure this process is as easy as possible. We use an App called Storypark which is downloadable on all iPhone and Smartphone devices. Through photos, videos, one-on-one chat with your child’s teacher and more you will stay connected with your children, teachers, and other parents about what is going on in your child’s daily activities here at Little Owl.

“We LOVE Little Owl Learning Centre Inc.
Our daughter has been going her for the last 2 and a half years. We always know she is in excellent care. She loves to go everyday to learn with her friends and can’t wait to tell us about her day and adventures with her friends. The children explore new things each day, have excellent meals and we are updated each day with what they are doing. I would recommend Little Owl Learning Centre Inc to all my friends.“
“Little Owl receives my top recommendation. I feel very confident leaving my children in their care every day. The staff are all very well versed in reggio learning and positive child development. They take time to understand each child’s strengths and areas for improvements and continually adapt their classroom to suit every child’s social, emotional, and physical needs. Their staff take a proactive and positive approach to each child and any parent concerns are address professionally and promptly. Little Owl is very open to working with families to support their child’s development. Little Owl has been very modest in their recent accomplishment of winning the 2018 Minister’s Award of Excellence in Child Development.”
“Our family loves Little Owl!! Justine and her staff are amazing. All of the teachers are so caring and compassionate. Everyday my little one is so excited to tell me all about his day and how much he loves his teacher. He also raves about all the delicious homemade meals Miss Clara makes. We’ve been going to Little Owl since they opened and would highly recommend them”
