Play & Exploration Based Programs

Our teachers are registered Early Childhood Educators that specialize in emergent, play based learning.


Moppet is a half-day, play-based cooperative preschool for children from 1½ to 5 years old. For more than 30 years, we have been providing children with a stimulating, fun and gentle introduction to the school environment. Our bright, newly renovated classroom is located within Suddaby Public School, in the heart of downtown Kitchener. Our teachers are warm and caring professional Early Childhood Educators, who love watching a child’s eyes light up with new understanding.

Helped ease the transition to kindergarten
I was really concerned about my spirited but cautious 3-year-old feeling comfortable while away from me and in the company of her peers. Moppet helped her to feel confident in a group and to express her needs calmly. This year, she went to Full-Day Kindergarten, and adjusted much faster than I had dared hope. I know the support and nurturing she received at Moppet helped to ease her transition to Junior Kindergarten.
