Organization Information

The Clubhouse at Sutherland provides a full day early learning program for children ages 2 to 5. We operate Monday to Friday from 7:30am to 5:00pm. We visit the Clubhouse Farm or Treehouse Preschool on bi-weekly field trips. The ideal platform for early learning education promotes the emotional, social, intellectual, and physical development of each child. This development is best nurtured through play, music, stories, games, art, and access to nature. Dedicated, caring educators offer a child-centred foundation: through kind example and loving care, we emphasize appropriate behaviour and problem solving skills. Skill advancement and school readiness are achieved through these key concepts used to encourage the growth and development of all our children.
