Blackburn Hamlet Preschool

Blackburn Hamlet Preschool has been a beloved part of east-end Ottawa since 1971 and is dedicated to providing a warm and stimulating environment and exceptional early-learning programs for young children. Our co-operative preschool is run by an elected parent Board of Directors, the support of numerous volunteers, a program supervisor, and a staff of dedicated teachers. Our programs allow toddlers and preschoolers to explore and experiment while developing independence and a positive attitude toward school and learning.

  • Update on BHPS

    As we’ve communicated in the past, the lease for the Blackburn Hamlet Preschool ends on June 30, 2017. The city has issued its third and final notice, and there will be no additional extensions. While BHPS’s board and the members of its location committee have worked extremely hard over the past eighteen months to secure a future for the school, we regret to inform our members and our supporters that after the end of this school year, Blackburn Hamlet Preschool will cease operations. Please note that programming for the remainder of our current school year will not be impacted.
