Martin Luther Daycare: A Non-Profit Service to the Community Since 1970
Hours of operation: 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Monday to Friday.
Breakfast and afternoon snack will be provided.
Drop-off and pick-up available at: St. Leo’s Catholic School, John English Public School, and David Hornell Public School.
Martin Luther Daycare is a small centre which offers familial and personalised care, with full-day programs for children from 18 months to 4 years old and from 6 to 12 years old. In September 2002, the Nursery was licensed to open a Before-and-After School Program. Currently, there are 56 spots.
We deliberately chose to remain a small facility to create a comfortable and warm environment to which children can adjust quickly and where they feel safe, secure and happy. We invite parental participation.
We believe that a child learns through play. Therefore, we provide a child-centred program with a “learning by doing” approach. Each program is run by an ECE staff member (Early Childhood Education (R.E.C.E.) diploma registered with the College of Early Childhood Educators ). Our staff members guide children through the stages of physical, emotional, cognitive and social growth by exposing them to physical exercise, arts and crafts, story reading, supervised naps, singing, educational toys, etc.
We provide an understanding, loving, challenging and intriguing place for your child to learn and grow. Hot nutritional lunches and snacks are prepared by Choice Children’s Catering, including peanut-free meals and special diets.
For openings, please contact the Day Care office at (416) 259-2861 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Martin Luther Evangelical Lutheran Church inaugurated this non-profit Child Care Service to the community at large in 1970. It has remained a non-profit service with a special emphasis on a caring home for the young among us. The atmosphere in our day care reflects our concept of building the foundations for a sound society. Children of all denominations and backgrounds are welcome.
The Day Care is fully licensed and regularly inspected by various governmental agencies under whose supervision the Child Care Centre functions. For government subsidy information call the City of Toronto Children’s Services (416) 392-5437 or have a look at the official website http://www.toronto.ca/children
The daycare is non-profit. Your generosity in supporting the daycare is greatly appreciated by the children, parents and teachers of the daycare.
