Melissa Street

About Melissa Street

This centre offers a great morning program for three and four year olds. In this child-led, play based program emphasis is on socialization and school readiness. Fun and creative centres like a playhouse, a school bus and a cozy reading corner are irresistible to the children and offer endless opportunity for learning and play.
The afterschool program that runs out of Melissa Street accommodates children from Kindergarten to Grade 5 who attend Barkers’ Point Elementary. Located in the Pepper Creek area, this facility is as diverse as it is expansive. Their outdoor play space boasts a playground, hills and a wooded area which encourages great imaginative play. Transportation to our facility from school is provided by the school district.
