The school comprises 4,000 square feet and, in appearance, co-exists comfortably in the primarily residential area. Open space, glass and light gives a feeling of autonomy, while subtly-enclosed group areas help to create an atmosphere of belonging. The building, designed to be part of the community, is a comfortable place for children, staff, and parents to meet, mingle and learn.
The year 2009 marked Kinderschool's 45th anniversary of being in operation with "York Region's School of Character" Award which is presented to a school that has systematically developed a sustainable character development initiative that positively impacts the climate and culture of their school and community.

Althea - Director & Founder
As a teacher in the public system, originally, Althea saw a critical need for teachers and parents to promote respectful, equality-based principals for working with children - to win and joyfully earn their respect, co-operation and participation - as opposed to making demands for constructive behaviour through the use of coercive, manipulative and, or punitive measures to force or 'encourage' it.
