Welcome to the BLC

The BLC is a non-profit child care centre which provides a diverse range of age appropriate early childhood programs. We offer full day child care for children aged 18 months to 4 years, and a part-time morning nursery school program for children aged 2 ½ to 4 years. Our goal is to stimulate a love of learning in a nurturing and positive environment. We believe that children learn best when they feel comfortable and loved. The BLC is a ‘home away from home’ for our children. Our centre is located on Ogilvie Road, north of Montreal Road, in the beautiful and quiet residential neighbourhood of Beacon Hill. The BLC first opened in 1974, and over the years kindergarten and school aged children, preschoolers and toddlers have thrived in our care. In April 2011 we moved into our beautiful, purpose built new facility. We offer excellent indoor and outdoor play spaces, and a variety of program options to accommodate your family’s needs.

Our highly qualified and experienced teachers give personalized attention to the children in our care, and offer supportive resources to parents and families. The BLC hires teachers with Early Childhood Education diplomas and/or Bachelor of Arts, Science or Education degrees.

Our Testimonials

  • Our three girls attended the Nursery School Program at the Beacon Learning Centre (BLC) from the time they were 2.5yrs old until Junior Kindergarten. Friends of ours had introduced us to BLC back in 2007. Each of our girls have highly benefited from the program, ensuring a successful transition toward full day junior kindergarten. From group play, to developing skills in social settings, to giving the children confidence in their abilities to create, play, and interact in a classroom setting, the BLC was invaluable in shaping our children's early lives in a safe and secure environment. The teachers are outstanding and contribute to provide such a great environment for the children. We highly recommend BLC to all parents who wish to provide their children with the best possible early education
