Deer Park Extended Primary Education Program

DPEP is one of Toronto's finest Child Care Centres, with diversified learning opportunities in a welcoming environment. 

Our Philosophy


 We believe that education is a four-way process involving the child, the teacher, the families and the school. Our aim is to create a child centred environment that provides a wide variety of enjoyable experiences for the children.  A positive self-image is fostered helping the children to become independent, self-directed, curious, responsible members of society. 

Our Program


DPEP provides care for preschool children between 2.5 and 6 years of age. At DPEP we provide a balance between basic and necessary communicative skills, visual arts, sciences, language, music, cooking and physical education. We believe, that engaging in these experiences allows children to reach their greatest potential. At DPEP the children and families have the opportunity to experience community based learning of the Deer Park neighbourhood and expand their education of the city through field trips in the Greater Toronto area.
