 Learning through Play Montessori Day Care and After School Care

The Learning through Play Montessori Day Care and After School Care is an Accredited  program located in the Rutherford School. Established in 1986, the childcare philosophy adopted by the Centre is based on Montessori. Care is provided for children from the ages of 19 months to 6 years in the Daycare room, and for students from Grade 1 – 6 in the After School Care room.  Mrs. Murji, the founder of the day care, believed in the concept that “it takes a village to raise a child”, hence the Centre operates on an open door and open communication policy and encourages a strong partnership between the Day Care, parents, the Rutherford School and the neighborhood community. We embrace and encourage pluralism and diversity.  For more information on the centre please call 780-469-0963.
