Deer Park Extended Program

Our Facilities


The DPEP class is a very bright and happy place to be.

The entire rear wall is windowed, which gives the room an abundance of natural light, as well as offering a beautiful view of the playground.

The room, which is air-conditioned, is quite large with high ceilings and this creates a very spacious and open atmosphere.

The centrepoint of the classroom is a carpeted area, where children can choose from a wide variety of educational toys and building materials.

Three large round tables are used for play as well as for snacks and lunches.

The 'cubby area' allows each child to store their belongings and outerwear.

There are two separate toilets inside the classroom, each equipped with child size toilets and a window allowing the teachers to monitor the activities of the child if required. Hand washing facilities are at the child's level.


Mature trees provide shade to the enclosed play area.

The children have a super variety of items to choose from, to promote gross motor development, including tricycles, hoola hoops, balls, basketball and hockey sets, cars, riding toys, airplane, walking stilts, bowling, wagon and wheelbarrow.

Other outdoor activities might include sledding, chalk work, games, shovels with buckets, parachute fun, building blocks....and many others!


DPEP's classroom is situated inside Deer Park School, which is located at 23 Ferndale Avenue, just North-East of Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue.

The DPEP classroom, Room 105, is located on the main floor of the school.

A convenient car drop-off area is available for parents who drive, located north of the school building on Heath Street East, which is accessible from Yonge Street or Alvin Avenue.
