Jelly Bean Academy and Daycare

Never underestimate a child, they are always seeking knowledge and want to be challenged to learn something new everyday!

At Jelly Bean Academy and Daycare we strongly believe that the first several years of a child's life is the period that they learn the most. Our goal is to ensure that each child experiences nothing less than what we would look for in an Academy for our own children - a safe, positive environment with a high quality of learning!

We are licensed by the Ministry of Education which governs The Childcare and Early Years Act (CCEYA). We provide childcare for children ranging from 16 months to 6 years old.

Some special features that you will find at Jelly Bean are:

  • Private outdoor playground.
  • Qualified and experienced Early childhood Educators.
  • Low teacher/child ratio.
  • Well balanced and nutritious meals prepared freshly on site.
  • Before and after school program

Our Programs

Kids learning

Jelly Bean has four classrooms, each having a unique flair for its age group. As children develop and grow they will graduate to the next level until they are ready for Grade 1. Children who graduate from Jelly Bean and start Grade 1, enter with confidence and respect for themselves and others. A high level of learning is established that starts with the Ontario Ministry Guidelines and is further enhanced based on the child's individual potential. Jelly Bean is enrolled in the CWELCC System. Effective November 1, 2022, Jelly Bean has modified its rates based on the conditions set by CWELCC and are visible on this website. Jelly Bean can terminate this agreement by giving the municipality of York 60 days' notice. Parents will also be notified of changes to enrollment by providing 60 days' notice.

Our Philosophy

What is our philosophy?

The fundamental goal at Jelly Bean is for every child to have an enriching experience that will not only empower children with knowledge but to have them acquire it in a fun and exciting way.

There are many different types of schools/childcare centers and teaching methods. With so many different philosophies it is hard to make a decision on the right school for a child. We believe that no one specific method of teaching is the best. Therefore, we have incorporated a program that encompass different learning methods in one. Certain aspects of Montessori, Jolly Phonics, High Scope and Parallel Play all have an important part in making children excel and grow.

  • Give children the opportunity to love to learn by making it fun.
  • Make them learn without even knowing they are working at it.
  • Everyday tasks are a learning experience.
  • Repetition is key to success.
  • Challenge a child everyday.
  • Most importantly, show love, comfort and provide a safe environment where children can be children.
