All About Kids Markham
Full Day Childcare in the Heart of Cornell
All About Kids Markham, established in 2000, is located in the heart of the Cornell community. Just a short walk from Cornell Village Public School and other schools, our centre is situated in a friendly neighborhood setting and is surrounded by green park space.
Our Markham centre is a ‘home away from home’ that your child can grow with. Many of our children started with us as infants and have carried on through to our toddler and school-age rooms and even into their teens – these kids have grown up with us at All About Kids and at our sister site Earthbound Kids where they enjoy outdoor summer camp programs during school break and PA Days. This truly is a centre your child can feel comfortable at for many years to come – we are one big happy family!
Our spacious classrooms with floor to ceiling windows far exceed Ministry of Education requirements. The center is equipped with a full-service kitchen where nutritious, home-cooked lunches and snacks are prepared fresh on-site daily. Our outdoor play space includes areas for active, gross motor play but also includes natural elements such as garden boxes, a log story circle, stage and backdrop for creative play and exploration.
We practice a play-based, learning through ‘doing’ philosophy. Come in for a visit and you’ll see children engaged in singing, dancing and circle-time sharing as well as science & sensory play, literacy and cognitive activities. We have a positive inclusive environment which whereby respects the individual needs of each and every child.
Web cameras are available for parents so that they are able to peek in on their little ones throughout the day.
For summer our older preschoolers and their school-aged siblings have the option to enjoy time at our outdoor sister site, Earthbound Kids where they can participate in our awesome outdoor, farm-based summer camp with transportation provided to and from the centre.
Emergency backup care is available for short-term needs. Our caregivers are experienced at making your little ones feel welcome and happy even if just visiting us for the day!
