BVO Preschool in Thornbury is a non-profit Daycare run under the umbrella of Beaver Valley Outreach. We offer licensed childcare spaces for children 18 months – 5 years old. Our program is facilitated by Registered Early Childhood Educators and governed by Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014. We offer a play-based learning which complements Ontario’s Full Day Every Day Learning. At BVO Preschool, your child’s needs are met in a safe, nurturing, environment with lots of age appropriate activities. A morning Nursery School experience is offered, however currently there is no space available.

You Can Help!

Donate funds, donate food, organize a food drive, or drop off needed items to support our Emergency Services.

Why Donate

Local families are able to access our emergency food cubby, clothing & household items, and fresh fruit and vegetables throughout the year. A parent receives recreational funding to help enroll their child in organized hockey/dance or other activities of their choice. Children of local families receive quality childcare right in their own community. Seniors and caregivers benefit from important information and resources available to maximize their quality of life.

For over 35 years, BVO and its many volunteers have been working hard to enhance the lives of people in The Blue Mountains, from infants to seniors, with quality programs and services. While proceeds from our Treasure Shop sales and government funding go a long way to fund BVO’s good work, financial support from the community is always needed. People give for different reasons and in different ways: to support a cause that is important to them and make an impact in their community; to ensure that their memory lives on in a meaningful way; to help reduce taxes while supporting charitable causes that align with their values. Some hold 3rd party fundraisers, where they participate in an engaging event while having fun and raising money that will help locals in our community when times are tough. 

There are many ways in which you can support BVO, both now and in the future. Please consider giving to BVO to help us continue “making good things happen in our community”.
