CHILDREN FROM INFANCY THROUGH TO FOUR YEARS OF AGE

Lisa’s Playhouse is a licensed Early Learning Centre for children from infant to pre-school age.  We are an outdoor, play-based, eco-friendly program. Following the New Brunswick Curriculum for Early Learning and Child Care, we focus on children’s interests, passions and strengths.  Our litterless lunch program helps with our goal of becoming a zero-waste facility in the near future! At our heart, we aim to help children (and families) learn to love the earth and protect it for future generations. Change needs to happen, and what better start than in the early years? There is no “Planet B.”
