Courtice Program

Location: Courtice
Ages: 6 weeks to 12 years

Compass Early Learning and Care Courtice is located in Mother Teresa Catholic School in Courtice, Ontario. In operation since 1991, this hidden gem is part of a well-established yet growing community. We see our program as a community within a community and hold great value to building and growing relationships together.

With children starting with us as young as 6 weeks and growing with us into their school years, we understand the important partnerships we hold with families. Through our documentation, portfolios, learning stories, we engage families into the daily life of the school. We understand the complexities of families today and offer a place that allows children to slow down and engage together in learning.
