Our school is located within the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre (MNjcc) at the corner of Bloor and Spadina and is easy to get to by walking, biking, public transportation, and driving.

For families coming to school by public transit, the Spadina TTC subway stop is across the street.

During dropoff and pickup times, we have an arrangement with the nearby Metro to use their parking lot at designated hours of the day.

During school hours, the MNjcc is filled with children attending the Libbie Cowan Childcare Centre, the Thomas & Marjorie Schwartz Preschool Centre and Paul Penna DJDS.

The MNjcc offers an excellent After Care program if your child requires care from 3:45pm-5:30pm, as well as a School’s Out program for PD days and during the Winter Break and other holidays. Swimming lessons, pottery classes, floor hockey, basketball, martial arts classes, the Suzuki Music School, Groove Dance lessons, and much more are offered at the MNjcc.  One of the many benefits of being housed in the MNjcc is that each student receives an annual membership to this fantastic facility.

Our location in the MNjcc gives students access to the pool and the newly-renovated gymnasium. Twice a day, students have recess on the rooftop playground. As well, Paul Penna DJDS has a longstanding relationship with the University of Toronto to use their field behind the school for lunch recess.

Our students are both members of the Paul Penna DJDS community as well as integral members of the wider MNjcc community. There are many programs and services through which families can find enrichment, wellness, and social connection through access to this broader community.
