About Our Private Daycare Centre

Private Daycare CentreOver the last 39 years at the Learning Tree private daycare centre and private preschool, we have continually evolved and developed our services, striving to fulfill our vision of being leaders in early childhood care & development. We can proudly state that we have provided unsurpassed childcare services for more than one generation of young children and can assure you that we will never lose sight of the unwavering commitment, passion and enthusiasm that make The Learning Tree such a special place.


Our History

gym - Private Daycare CentreWe began offering Preschool services in 1985 in a small church, with 36 children and a staff of 6. As the demand for our daycare centre increased, We rapidly outgrew our church facilities and decided to build our own specialized state-of-the-art dedicated facility. We realized that the minimum space requirements mandated by the government were insufficient and did not match our vision. Accordingly, we designed the new building to be about one 1 1/2 times larger than the required norms, providing space for a gymnasium, library and computer lab. The new Learning Tree childcare facility in Dollard-Des-Ormeaux (on Montreal’s West Island) finally opened in September 1987 and our private daycare has been here ever since!
