The Chestnut Tree Preschool was founded by Eileen Hunter-Cook & Cindy Lebel

We are a licensed non-profit, charitable organization, celebrating more than 25 years of quality childcare services to the community. Our mission is to provide a positive learning environment for your child that enhances his or her level of development through play. Our programs are designed to give children a stronger start in school and in life by helping them develop valuable skills that give them every opportunity to succeed.

The Chestnut Tree Pre-school Inc., which was established in April 1994 in Stoney Creek, Ontario and has grown to three (3) licensed child care centres in Ontario. We opened as a preschool offering a part-time, half-day nursery school programs with 24 children ages 2 1/2 – 5 years and 3 staff.

In 2014 & 2019 we added a second and third centre in Beamsville and Lincoln Manor, offering a full Infant, toddler and preschool programs with a combined licensed capacity of 64 children. Today, the Chestnut Tree Preschool provides a broad range of childcare services for Infants, toddlers and preschool children ages 3 months to 6 years, including part-time and full-time daycare as well as before and after school care. The Chestnut Tree Pre-school and Childcare centres operate as a charitable organization licensed by the Ministry Education and in partnership with the Niagara Children Services, incorporated with the Consumer and Corporate Relations under the Corporations Act of Ontario to engage in the services of daycare for children.
