Rolling Hills Program

Location: Bethany
Ages: 6 weeks to 12 years

Compass Early Learning and Care Rolling Hills in located just twenty minutes east of Peterborough in the small village of Bethany. Housed within Rolling Hills Public School and beside Grandview Public School, our program services many families from in and around this beautiful rural community.

Children often begin their journey with us as young as 6 weeks of age and stay with us through their school years in our before and after school program. Central to our curriculum, we believe that relationships are the foundation of our work. Through journals, photos, and learning stories we engage families in the life of the school. Our rural location offers us nature at our fingertips and we see the outdoors as an extension of our classroom. We understand the complexities of families today, especially within a rural community. Our program offers full and part day care as well as a Nursery School program.
