Allen-Detweiler Nursery School (ADNS) is a non-profit, play-based co-operative that has been in operation in Kingston for over 50 years. The school offers both Toddler and Preschool programs and is located in Rideaucrest Home at 175 Rideau Street. The school’s programs emphasize the learning of social skills (including assertiveness and respect for others), building a child’s self concept, and active learning through play and organized child-centred activities. Children also participate in intergenerational programming with the residents of Rideaucrest Home.
ADNS currently has an opening for a part-time Preschool Assistant beginning September 2018. Although advantageous, an ECE diploma is NOT required for this position.
