Shirley Street School is located near the southwest corner of Dundas Street and Brock Avenue. Our school is a warm, welcoming school with a small population of students and dedicated staff.
The school is also home to:
-City View Alternative Senior School
-YMCA Child Care Centre that offers separate care for toddlers, pre-schoolers as well as kindergarten-aged children
In 2016, EcoKids piloted Outdoor Play and Learning (OPAL) in six schools in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). First established in the United Kingdom, OPAL is recognized as a best practice for supporting school improvement through play – as cited in UK Government reports. OPAL was also winner of the Best European Active Schools programme in 2017. The program has grown to over 40 schools in three school boards in the GTA.
We currently support OPAL in K-8 schools in the Toronto District School Board and Shirley Street Public school is one of the OPAL schools.
