Your Child Will Love to Learn

We will encourage your child to be all that he can be and more! Children leave EDNS with a joy of learning and a general thirst for knowledge. Each EDNS class has a teacher and teacher’s aide. All of our credentialed staff members possess a genuine love of children and will guide your child through exciting educational experiences.


Exciting Exploration through Music, Science and More

All classes are 2 1/2 hours in length and allow your child to circulate through the various centres available. Interacting in such subjects as music, science, creative movement and dance encourages our whole child philosophy and helps children feel good about themselves and their own abilities.


A Balanced Learning Environment for Your Child’s Benefit

Arts and crafts, dramatic expression, physical education, reading and math readiness, and stories round out our skilfully designed programs. EDNS balances our learning environment with both child-directed and teacher-directed activities.
