Welcome To The McLoughlin Schools


Welcome to The McLoughlin Schools. Mrs. Ann McLoughlin, a qualified early childhood educator, founded The McLoughlin Schools in 1971. Throughout our years of growth and continued advancement, we have proudly remained committed to ensuring preschool children learn, develop and explore within a joyful, nurturing and enriching school environment.

Our Approach

Our focus is on establishing a strong educational foundation for young thinkers, while also emphasizing the importance of positive social development and the preparation of confident, creative students for the school years to follow. As well as encouraging the first concepts of learning, we strive on working with children to enhance their feelings of independence, confidence and the merits of individual differences.

Our Program

Nursery and Senior Nursery Enrichment programs are provided for children aged 2 ½ to 6 years of age.

Optional programs include French and Lunchtime care. A limited enrollment summer program is available at the end of school year. In addition, the school offers optional developmental and speech screening programs conducted by our consultants, a registered child psychologist and a registered speech and language pathologist.

We are licensed by the Ministry of Education and Children and Youth Services and conform to the Day Nurseries Act, the Day Nurseries Branch of the Ministry of Education – Community and Social Services.

Our Facilities

The McLoughlin Schools are located in warm, family-oriented areas, fostering the child’s sense of safety and community. Our indoor and outdoor activity spaces are designed to feel friendly, stimulating and liberating, helping our children feel happy and inspired during their first early years of learning.

All students are required to wear a playful, non-restrictive school uniform. From our many years of observation, we have come to believe that uniforms contribute positively to a child’s school experience. Even at a very young age we’ve seen that clothing trends, or the “haves” and “have-nots” of themselves and their peers can distract students. When all children are dressed the same, there is less focus on their outfits and more focus on the task at hand. Our feedback also shows that it’s much easier for parents, and eliminates any tricky buckles, zippers and snaps at potty time!
