We know big changes happen during this time such as increased independence and more curious questions. Our educators welcome each toddler with open arms and patience. By communicating with families, we give toddlers an environment to explore and learn at their own pace.

The kindergarten years are critical in preparing your child for school and life. We give children an abundance of learning opportunities across literacy, numeracy, emotional development, confidence-building, social engagement and more.

Our Story

The Elephas Education brand was inspired by the bond between elephants and their young within their herd. We’ve all heard the saying – it takes a tribe. Our name speaks to the commitment we have to nurturing children throughout their early childhood and fostering enduring, cooperative and supportive bonds.

Elephas reflects the similarities between our role as educators guiding children on a path of growth and success and elephants watching over their young as they learn to navigate the world around them.

Elephas is memorable, just like great early childhood education experiences.
