  • NEW FOR 2017-2018!

    We are excited to offer two new programs for 2017: an after-school program and Sunday afternoon respite camps! We have created these programs to meet the need we see in the community as expressed to us by so many of our Lotus Centre families. Our first round of offerings for respite camp filled in only two hours!!! We have opened up more availability but will limit registration to one Sunday per month. Our after-school program will feature daily outdoor play, snacks, music circle, and time for homework help or musical instrument practice as needed. All spaces in both programs will fill quickly, book yours before they're gone!

  • We're Moving!


    We're excited to annouce that we will be moving to the Beaverbrook Centre at 2 Beaverbrook Rd. in Kanata! Our newly renovated space brings with it two more music classrooms so that we can serve more students in the community, a large outdoor play yard and walking trails for our camps, and still only minutes from highway 417! This allows us to more than DOUBLE our capacity for all our camps (PD day, March Break and summer) and add exciting new programs that will be rolled out soon! Please come and experience this new space with us at our Grand Opening on Sunday, June 25th from 1-5pm. Coinciding with this exciting new development will be our 5th anniversary and 5th annual student recital, so we're anxious to celebrate with the community! Check out the plans for the new Lotus Centre!17051 BEAVERBROOK CENTRE 2 BEAVERBROOK ROAD 02 SP REV 01 page 001
