Why is Peregrine Discovery so special?

Natural Growth

Children have the ability to learn and develop naturally through independence, exploration and community.

Our amazing teachers are experienced at adapting to a child's interests with the aim of supporting their personal curiosity within the context of our daily activities.

Beautiful Location

The centre is perched on the top of a hill overlooking the green expanse of a golf course and private woods, conveniently located close to Ancaster and Dundas.

Our grounds provide an acre of gardens to explore with plenty of outdoor space to play.

Inside the house has been thoughtfully renovated to provide spaces for reading, playing music, being artistic and engineering robots as well as a kitchen for cooking classes and a large mud room to get muddy!

Small Group Sizes

We know the importance of having a small group size to ensure that all attendees are engaged and well looked after, our aim is to have a maximum of 6 children per teacher/instructor for our programs.

21st Century Learning

Education has changed. Children now need to learn skills that allow them to be a part of the 21st century workforce.

Our programs encourage skills and learning that we feel are essential to this new way of thinking, such as problem-solving, hands-on tasks, integrating technology, and collaboration.

United Nations Sustainable Development and Education is a great reference for 21st century learning concepts.

Teachers and Instructors (Our Team)

Our highly qualified teachers and instructors are all passionate about working with children to engage them in exciting learning opportunities.

We ensure the entire staff have Criminal Record Checks with Vulnerable Sector Screenings, and that teachers are regularly finding ways to add to their professional development.

Our leads are fully certified with the Ontario College of Teachers and also have up to date First Aid training.

Community

Our goal is to create a centre where families and others from community come to socialize, think about education, and engage in activities together.

This may be through special events, group meetings, or day to day interactions.

We want to create a community of learners, both adults and children, that are working together to rethink eduction for the 21st century.
