An academically enriched curriculum, enhanced through music, dance, theatre and visual arts, our early learning centre is like no other daycare. Focused on nurturing and developing the whole child using principles from Reggio Emilia and Montessori, our early childhood educators work with skilled performance and visual arts instructors to create learning environments in professional, specially purposed spaces where your child’s creativity can flourish.
An exceptional before and after school program designed to conveniently work around your child’s school day. We’ve designed a high-quality program that accommodates busy family schedules in a nurturing and inclusive learning environment that we’re able to tailor to each child. We integrate education and the arts, allowing children to explore their potential while cultivating lifelong friendships. By providing your child this outlet for their extra-curricular needs and wants after school, you’ll also free up your evenings and weekends to enjoy more family time.

Our PhilosophyServing our community’s youngest learners
There are a billion sparks in each of our children, longing to be ignited and fanned into flame. All of them possibilities that can become realities. It’s a time of incredible cognitive, emotional, social and physical growth.
Our academy has one goal: to ignite those sparks and fan them into flame by providing opportunities for self-expression through enriched educational experiences in both the arts and academics. We empower each child to become a creative thinker, a problem-solver and a socially adept citizen who will go on to change the world.

What Families Say about us
“Renaissance Kids' carefully though-out curriculum and services are designed to provide students with an absolutely safe and comfortable environment where they can study happily and establish a strong and solid foundation for their future. “
“As parents, we felt guilty sending our daughter to more ‘“schooling” after her regular school hours. We felt surprised and relieved that our daughter actually looks forward to the days she attends Spark and she even begs us to not pick her up too early! From the incredibly kind and caring teachers to the fun and engaging classes each day, you can’t go wrong with Spark!”
“All the classes are focused and have a purpose to engage the children. We can't imagine a better scenario for our daughter, the Spark program is entirely more than a before and after school program, it exposes children to higher levels of art that they don't experience in public schools.”
