Covid-19 News: All of our educators and student assistants are fully immunized against Covid-19; eligible adults have received 3rd dose. We have a HEPA filter air cleaner running continuously, and have windows open for ventilation year-round.
Well-loved by Ottawa families since 1981, Good Morning Creative Arts and Preschool is a cooperative, parent-run, licensed child care program, offering creative and educational programs for children ranging from ages 18 months to Grade 6.
In our happy environment we encourage children to explore, interact and discover. We begin each class the same way – with a genuinely warm welcome for each child who walks through our door!

We are Looking for a Forever Home...
Go Fund Me: https://gofund.me/5c1c9a7e
In the 41 years since it was founded, Good Morning Creative Arts and Preschool (GMCAPS) has been so fortunate to have been part of your lives, whether as parents, students, or both! We are reaching out to you, our community, because we need your help.
This will be our last year at the location where many of you experienced your first exciting days of school or your first tearful drop-offs as new parents. The building at 174 First Avenue has been sold and we are moving in the summer of 2023.
We have a dedicated team of current and alumni parents working to secure a new location, but have so far not found a new home for our programming. Unfortunately, after months of discussion with a local organization, we recently learned that they have determined they are not able to support a long-term tenancy.
If you have a space to rent or know of a local organization who might be a good fit, please let us know and spread the word that we are looking for a new location. Please contact our Director, Karen Cameron, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We anticipate numerous costs associated with this move, which will be difficult for our non-profit cooperative to manage, particularly if our programming is suspended during the move. Financial donations can be made online on our Go Fund Me page at https://gofund.me/5c1c9a7e or by reaching out to Karen directly at the email address above.
We truly feel our program is special and we hope you feel the same. Our preschool was founded by a group of parents who came together to create something amazing, and we believe our community can come together again to ensure that Good Morning Preschool continues to serve Ottawa families for generations to come.
