Welcome to the BLC


The BLC is a non-profit child cBLCyardare centre which provides a diverse range of age appropriate early childhood programs. We offer full day child care for children aged 18 months to 4 years, and a part-time morning nursery school program for children aged 2 ½ to 4 years. Our goal is to stimulate a love of learning in a nurturing and positive environment. We believe that children learn best when they feel comfortable and loved. The BLC is a ‘home away from home’ for our children. Our centre is located on Ogilvie Road, north of Montreal Road, in the beautiful and quiet residential neighbourhood of Beacon Hill. The BLC first opened in 1974, and over the years kindergarten and school aged children, preschoolers and toddlers have thrived in our care. In April 2011 we moved into our beautiful, purpose built new facility. We offer excellent indoor and outdoor play spaces, and a variety of program options to accommodate your family’s needs.

Our highly qualified and experienced teachers give personalized attention to the children in our care, and offer supportive resources to parents and families. The BLC hires teachers with Early Childhood Education diplomas and/or Bachelor of Arts, Science or Education degrees.

Our Testimonials


Our twin boys started in the toddler room at Beacon Learning Centre in 2016 and since day one it has exceeded our expectations. The care and learning environment provided by the wonderful teachers is outstanding. We are continually impressed with the creative activities and play the boys are experiencing and the skills they are learning. We have also been so pleased with the level of communication provided to the parents on a regular basis. We never have to wonder what our boys are learning and who they are interacting with thanks to the regular updates and photos we receive. We have already been recommending the centre to friends and neighbours!
