Message from the Executive Director:


Welcome to the Early Beginnings family! I use the word “family” because that’s what Early Beginnings is to me; a big family. I am proud to say that since we first opened our doors in 1989 we have provided a positive first learning experience to several hundred children in Ottawa’s Jewish and greater community. Our primary goal is to provide a caring, fun, stimulating, and educational environment. The qualified and enthusiastic staff create a setting where children will form their first friendships and learn things that they will carry with them throughout their lifetime; such as respect for others, acceptance, and inclusion.

Your child will be welcomed into our Early Beginnings family and start onto his/her path of fun and learning.

Sandy Deyo, RECE
