Freight House Early Learning & Care Inc. was originally incorporated as Freight House Day Nursery Inc. at 505 Ross Ave. in December 1974. Our original facility is uniquely housed in an old freight building originally operated by Great Northern Railway, which also accommodates a variety of other community programs.

Our Original space is home to a 44 space preschool centre. Through the years we have under gone a variety of renovations to update and maintain a safe and unique character environment.

We expanded in 2000 to 215 Isabel St. which housed a preschool site. In 2009 after a lengthy renovation we opened 215 Isabel as a 22 space centre for infant/toddler care. The centre is currently under massive renovations by the landlord and therefore we have been relocated to 319 Elgin Ave. for the past 4 years. Scheduled return is Fall 2016.

We opened a school age program in Dufferin, our community school January 05, 2009. We are inclusive to all children and families and pride our self in developing positive relationships and flexibility to support our family’s needs.

In 2011 we opened an infant/preschool/school age site established for the flood evacuees of Lake St. Martin. This centre is home to 32 children 3 months to 12 years.

FHELC is a proud member of the Centennial Community. The centre maintains a high ratio of trained professionals of which many have remained members of our team for over 10 years.
