About Us:


Royal City Cooperative Preschool is Guelph’s first established cooperative preschool.  Originally opened in 1969 under the name “Winnie the Pooh”,  Royal City Preschool has a long history of providing a play-based learning environment for preschoolers.

Royal City Cooperative Preschool is dedicated to the individual needs of each child. There are a variety of programs to choose from, each including age specific activities incorporating intellectual, emotional, developmental and sensory learning.

Being a co-operative preschool, families are involved in the operation of the school and daily activities, with considerable flexibility to accommodate a variety of needs and schedules. Contact us to learn more!


We enrolled both of our kids at Royal City Preschool this year because it came recommended by friends – the best decision we could have made! The teachers are incredibly organized, cheerful, positive and somehow manage to engage each child in the class with personal attention. Best of all, our kids LOVE going there and are always so proud to show us their work at the end of a fun-filled morning. We look forward to attending again next year!
