Shamrock Program

Location: Ennismore
Ages: 12 months to 6 years

Compass Early Learning and Care Shamrock has a long history in the Ennismore community. Located in the original schoolhouse built in 1918, generations of families have walked through our doors. We aspire to keep these community connections alive for the families and children and we see our centre as a place to grow together in learning.

Children often begin their journey with us as young as 18 months of age and stay with us until they go off to school. Central to our curriculum, we believe that relationships are the foundation of our work. Through journals, photos, projects and learning stories we engage families in the life of the school.

On the outskirts of Peterborough, 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.
