Are you looking for preschool or daycare? Albert College offers a Pre-Kindergarten program for children age 2.5 to 4 years old. The Early Primary Learning Centre (EPLC) is a fully licensed childcare, centrally located at 28 Highland Avenue in Belleville.
The Pre-Kindergarten classroom is a bright and cheerful space for various play-and-inquiry based learning opportunities. Our students benefit from an outstanding outdoor education experience with endless outdoor green space that is private, secure and features a play structure, large sandbox, paved area for bikes, balls and riding toys, and room to run and explore.
Pre-Kindergarten students experience active, experiential learning through play and a comprehensive, integrated curriculum of carefully planned and child-centred activities.
The Pre-Kindergarten program focuses on the development of the whole child – physical, social, emotional and intellectual – in preparation for early and ongoing success in Albert College's Junior and Senior Kindergarten.
Our program is offered on a full-time basis, with limited part-time spaces available each year, from Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.; after school care is also available.
Children develop language, communication and problem-solving skills as they learn to cooperate with others and make new friendships in a small and caring family environment.
Our Pre-Kindergarten program is driven by the school’s core values of individuality, compassion, integrity and inclusiveness.
Children experience active, experiential learning and an integrated curriculum that is delivered by registered early childhood educators. Children also learn music taught by our music specialist, who ensures a quality age-appropriate program.

No more making lunches! Lunch is served to full-time students each day at the EPLC. Healthy snacks are provided to both part-time and full-time students.
The Pre-Kindergarten program is so much more than a preschool. The enthusiastic and dedicated teaching staff provide vital learning and social skills through outdoor play, and directed learning in a friendly, comfortable, family environment. Not only did my children benefit from this, but it introduced our family to the amazing Albert College community. My kids are interacting with other students at the school and are participating in school-wide events. They enjoy outings at the 'big school' that make them feel connected and like an important part of the school community. My children enjoy home-cooked healthy snacks and lunches, and love going to school every day.
