Clara's Kitchen

"The long-term health and vitality of entire nations depends on the wellbeing of its individual children."1

Clara's Kitchen not only fills happy tummies but holds within it an opportunity for social lessons. Our in house chef, Miss Clara, provides morning snack, lunch, and an afternoon snack to all children in our program. 


When children are capable of feeding themselves we serve all of our food in a family style. Food will be served on our lunch tables in serving bowls and children will be asked to fill their own plates by trying something from each bowl. By serving food in this manner children learn:

1. Self Help Skills

2. Social Responsibility and Sharing

3. Positive Table Etiquette  

4. Learn to Try a Variety of New Delicious Foods

 Little Owl Learning Centre Inc is a Nut Free Facility.

 “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”
