The BLC is a non-profit child care 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.

BLC COVD-19 Health and Safety Policy updated April 16th 2021
We have been lucky to send both our daughters to the Beacon Learning Centre, and the BLC staff has become part of our extended family, especially throughout the pandemic. All members of the staff lead by kindness, and nurture the children as an integral part of our community. There is attention to their nutrition and physical activity as well, which has contributed to their overall development. We have always felt that our children’s wellbeing has been the BLC’s primary focus, and our children have thrived under their care. Having tried other daycares prior to coming to the BLC, we can confidently say that the BLC has been a true gem.
