Located in Cambridge, Ontario, Little Scholars is dedicated to providing children with a safe and secure environment where each child feels comfortable to explore and build confidence through a variety of learning experiences. Our programs practice a unique curriculum focused both on play and academics. Little Scholars executes an emergent curriculum that is based on the children’s interests and this approach of planning is utilized in both our play based and our skill based activities.Safe, Secure Child Care in Cambridge
We value play as it is a vehicle that propels learning and development. We understand that play fosters skill development through offering opportunities to gain new skills as well as refine existing ones. Our intention is to provide the best possible environment to meet the play needs of all children and to do whatever possible to support the natural urge to play so that each child can develop an excitement for learning.

Our team is absolutely amazing and we wouldn’t be where we are today without our educators.
