About Us

 As a licensed, non-profit, co-operative, Lakeside is one of the oldest childcare facilities in the Beach. It was established in 1972, under the name of Ward 9 Co-operative Playschool, by a group of Beach-area families and has operated in leased facilities at St. Aidan's Church for all but the first few months of its existence. 

Our co-operative childcare centre operates under the guidelines and regulations of the City of Toronto's Operating Criteria, the Provincial Child Care Early Years Act, Toronto Public Health, and the Ministry of Education. 

Our facilities include a large fenced-in playground with an abundance of shade and room to roam, a large preschool room, a centre care operative, fully equipped kitchen and two child sized bathrooms.
