Program Info

We currently have two programs within the North End Community. Jamesville Children’s Centre is located within Christ’s Church Cathedral at 252 James St. N. Jamesville Bennetto Community Care is located within Bennetto Elementary School at 47 Simcoe St. The Centres came into being as a result of the Cathedral’s outreach program and being a community partner with the local elementary schools. We are an inclusive program sensitive to the multicultural diversity in our community.

Jamesville has a commitment to integrate those children with special needs into the regular classroom setting with age appropriate role models. Specifically, our Centres are sensitive to unique aspects of each child’s individual development, pattern and timing of growth and cultural background. Our teachers work closely with other professionals such as resource teachers, social workers and speech pathologists. Jamesville staff offer support for parents and care givers in guiding their child’s behaviour effectively and accessing community resources and support.

We have an ‘Open Door’ policy. Parents are welcome at the Centres at any time but keep in mind we need to be sensitive to the needs of the individual child and the whole group. Parent participation is supported and encouraged.
