Royal West Early Learning Centre

The Royal West Early Learning Centre is located in the north end of Royal West Campus. The centre occupies five classroom areas that house the offices, the kitchen, two preschool rooms, a toddler room and two infant rooms. A large natural playground is located off the main centre area. Ten early childhood educators provide care and education for the children. Children who require additional supports related to development or behaviour are assisted by an Inclusion Coordinator. Our excellent cook provides two snacks and lunch each day. We place a strong emphasis on healthy foods so all foods are made from scratch. The cook also has individual servings of food available for parents to heat up for lunch. Coffee, snacks, and a large bowl of fruit are available for parents as they head off to school or work.

Applications are accepted throughout the year. If there is not a space immediately available, you can be placed on our waitlist. If your contact information changes, please make sure to call the centre to update your application information.
