Compass Early Learning and Care Millbrook opened its doors to the Millbrook community in 2017. Built as part of an addition to Millbrook South Cavan School, we are excited to be a part of this growing community. Our growing partnerships with the school, local businesses, as well as the many green spaces that surround us, provide valued extensions to our rich learning environments which engage children's natural curiosity.

We welcome children as young as 6 weeks of age, with many of them continuing with us in our school-age program. During their time with us we encourage parents and caregivers to engage with us in their child(ren)'s learning through parent evenings, learning stories, portfolios, and various projects. Relationships are at the heart of all that we do.

 Drop In Gym

Get ready to work up a sweat (or at least have a lot of fun) being active and busy at the Family Centre's free drop-in gym program.  This runs the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month from 9:30 til' 11:30 and takes place upstairs at the Old School, in the Dorothy Stevens Room on the 3rd Floor.

Lots of fun gym equipment is put out, including balls, balance boards, tunnels, plasma cars and more.  Physical activity is so important for growing little bodies and most children in Canada do not get enough exercise each day. Please stay for snack after, downstairs in the Family Centre.
