How St. Clement's Early Learning School sees itself
"As the leading benchmark for Early Childhood Education since 1955, SCELS has stuck to its promise. Our promise is to provide an exceptional, individualized program that works best for your child. With an intimate staff of twenty, and small class sizes in one of Toronto’s historic landmark churches, we’ve developed a reputable program that encompasses a balanced academic and social/emotional curriculum from Nursery to Grade 2. Contact us at [email protected] to book a tour or visit www.scels.ca ."
"Through intimate class sizes, an Individualized Program, well-curated curriculum, and access to phenomenal resources, SCELS is able to understand each child’s specific learning style and guide them at the appropriate level. Ultimately, this helps shape confidence and build a strong sense of self."
"Because of our focus on Individualized Learning, SCELS is often chosen by parents looking to gain a more intimate learning environment with a high focus on academic, social, and emotional growth."
"Our Kindergarten classes are approximately between 14-17 students with two teachers (RECE/OCT certified). This is especially small compared to many other schools in Toronto. This allows teachers the appropriate time with each student to understand their learning styles and set goals that are attainable and suitable to their level."
"The importance of the SCELS community is something families take with them long after graduation. Being a more intimate sized school, the friendships formed here as well as fundraisers and community events can leave a lasting impression on families of the school."

Marsha Hamilton, Principal
We value the confidence that the hundreds of families have placed in us over the years. With their assistance, our skilled and dedicated teachers have been able to lay a solid educational foundation beneath more than 2,000 children. Our students graduate to one of the many prestigious private schools, or into one of the fine public schools in the city. Their success is a source of great pride for us.
Each and every year, from early September until the following June, our primary goal is to understand each child’s individual learning style and then teach them at the appropriate level. Our mission is to have no one “falling between the cracks” at St. Clement’s Early Learning School.
Though our goals are large at St. Clement’s Early Learning School, our size is not. There is ample opportunity for us to get to know you and your family’s educational needs.
I look forward to hearing from you.
