Welcome to Orillia Central Preschool!


It is the goal of Orillia Central Preschool to provide an environment, which offers the opportunity for each child to develop in his or her own unique way. Our Preschool Programs are based on the philosophy that children’s play is valued, and that children interact with, and learn from their peers. Through play, children are encouraged to form positive relationships, make choices, and participate in a full range of activities. Our program is designed to enhance children’s development in all areas, foster self esteem and encourage both independence and interdependence, in an environment that is positive and free from coercion.


The Preschool has been located at our Central location at 26 Coldwater Street East, for 30 years now and is licensed for 76 children per day.  To answer the needs of the community, in January 2014, we opened a second location at 547 Laclie Street.  This new location is licensed for 55 children per day and is called Orillia Central Preschool North. In September 2016, we opened our Before and After School program at Orchard Park Public School at 24 Calverly Street.  This location offers daycare for PD Days, Christmas Break and March Break also.
