St. Mary's Daycare1

St. Mary's Daycare is a non-profit daycare owned and operated by St Mary's Coptic Orthodox Church. The daycare was established in 2003 in response to the growing community of young families in the area. It is located in the St John's Fellowship Centre at 2 Canfield Rd, Nepean Ontario K2H-5T1.

St. Mary's Daycare provides a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment for children between the ages of eighteen months and twelve years.

We offer four separate programs for children:

  • Toddler for children 18 months to 2.5 years
  • Preschool for children aged 2.5 - 5 years
  • Kindergarten for children 3.8-6 years
  • School Age for ages 6 - 12 years

The goal of each program is to provide a positive learning experience as well as to enhance each child's level of development by providing age appropriate activities. We strive to meet individual needs as well as to foster a positive self-image.


Our philosophy at St. Mary's Daycare is to provide a warm and nurturing learning environment in which children can explore, experiment and develop a feeling of self-worth and independence.

We recognize that when children play in a safe, comfortable and stimulating environment under the guidance of staff that is attentive, respectful and caring, children flourish in all areas of their development - social and emotional, language, cognitive, and physical.
