Clayton Community Centre Kindergarten

​Each day at Clayton Community Centre offers a world of new experiences!

We create a warm and welcoming environment for children and families. We believe that the early years are a pivotal time in children’s lives, and that kindergarten is an important and meaningful place of learning for them.

At Clayton Community Centre Kindergarten, our educators know that the best way for children to learn is through play-based curriculum and independent inquiry. Children are guided through new activities and adventures, focusing on the rich multicultural community of our wonderful families. Our program works in partnership with the children and their families to create a space that fosters learning and friendship.
