The Westboro Children's Centre is located in a bright and beautiful facility, which was reconstructed in 1998 on property leased on a long-term basis from the Ottawa- Carleton District School Board; the Westboro Children's Centre is physically linked to Hilson Avenue Public School located in Westboro. As separate institutions with complimentary mandates, the Westboro Children's Centre and Hilson Avenue Public School have a long history of partnership and cooperation for the benefit of area children and their parents that began in 1979. The two buildings are connected by a permanent link. This link allows for easy flow and access from the Westboro Children's Centre to Hilson Avenue Public School.

Our natural playground encourages the children to discover and enjoy the greenery of the outdoors and the opportunity to explore nature.

The Westboro Children's Centre has a fully equipped industrial kitchen enabling the chef to create nutritious snacks and hot meals right on the premises. The centre is fully air-conditioned and meets accessiblity guidelines and standards.
