Ms. J. Ayoung: "It’s a blessing to be working here at PCA! Being able to incorporate God in my daily lessons and sing His praises is amazing. The world we live in today seems to be turning away from God, the Bible and the Truth. It is comforting knowing that I am planting the seeds of God’s love and the Gospel in the lives of the next generation! It is also a blessing to watch these seeds grow in their lives. PCA give this world hope and I’m grateful to be a part of that."

Ms. S. Hau: "I am so grateful that I am given the opportunity to team up with God and other staff here at PCA to make a difference to the next generation.
I truly believe that it is important for us to tell them about Jesus' love and start equipping them while they are young.
Being able to contribute in God's work and witnessing how He works in the hearts of the little ones & families every day is such an amazing yet humbling experience!"

Mrs. J. Kim : "I believe that educators are the first stepping stone in helping children become successful individuals in their life journey.  I am truly blessed to be able to work here at PCA to be a stepping stone in God's special purpose. His provision and amazing love drives each day to be as successful as possible in a safe and fun place here at the ELC. I am very happy to have the priviledge to witness our preschoolers grow and most importantly, to be able to teach a Christian based education to our wonderful children."

Early Learning Centre staff, RECE

Miss D. Lau: "I am truly thankful that God has given me the opportunity to serve Him here at PCA. By His grace I have been saved through faith and by His grace I am able to partake in His mighty deeds! I believe that through the sharing of God’s Word and the Holy Spirit working amongst us, children’s lives are continually transformed as they learn and experience the gracious love of God. In partnership with families, we can work together to provide a safe environment in which children can explore and create meaning from the world God has created for us to enjoy. “Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”” (Matthew 19:14, ESV). To God be all glory, honour, and praise!

Miss P. Leung: "It's such a privilege to walk with the little ones in the ELC and teach them about what it means to be His image bearer. Being able to share about the transformative love of Jesus that I've experienced to the little children is so meaningful to me. The children and staff of the ELC are a bundle of joy to journey with and I'm blessed to call them my family in Christ."

Mr. R. Leung: "It is a blessing to be working at PCA. I really enjoy working with the young learners and share God's words with them. It is important to teach them what is right and wrong through God's words and support their academic growth and spiritual development. It is also an amazing journey for me to be able to grow with the children in God's love and His blessing."

Mrs. G. Ng: "After teaching in many different venues and interacting with so many children it is a privilege to come to a place where we are free to share the love of Jesus on a daily basis with everyone we encounter. To know that we are planting seeds that will be sown in God’s time is a blessing that humbles me. PCA has seen so many alumni pass through that have dedicated their lives to serving Christ and to somehow be a small part of that is an honour that cannot be compared!"

P. Webber

Early Learning Centre staff

Mrs. P. Webber: "I am truly blessed with the opportunity that God has provided me to work here at PCA being able to share my beliefs of God alongside others who feel the same.  I feel that children who walk through these ELC doors are given the opportunity to strengthen their faith so that they may grow and be able to share the love of God within themselves with everyone they encounter.  Providing a safe and loving environment for them to explore and grow each day is such a blessing. I hope they learn as much from me as I learn from them."

Miss. A. Yan: "It is such an honour to be able to work here at PCA and to serve the children and families that come through the doors. Working here is such a blessing and I am so glad I get to play a small part in their lives. I am so excited to share the love of Jesus Christ and incorporate His teachings into the teachings here. I look forward to seeing the seeds grow and to see Jesus work in their lives."
  • I certainly did benefit from my years at PCA. The opportunity to be involved with student council, sports teams, musicals, and a singing ensemble that ministered in various Toronto churches combined with weekly chapel services and great courses taught by dedicated teachers all combined for a great high school experience. I serve as the Pastor of Church Networking at Peoples Church where I work with church planters and pastors to support their churches with training and volunteers to advance their outreach in Toronto. I'm also a regional mobilizer with C2C network (www.c2cnetwork.ca) which is a national church planting network. Our family's most recent adventure is that we're starting a new charity called Love a Village to facilitate mission work that God has been opening up for us in northern Malawi over the past few years.

  • We moved schools from Toronto to Markham on the great testimony from good friends who have children in PCA. We are so incredibly thankful that we did. PCA has been a daily blessing to our family. One of our children has graduated from ELC to JK, and we currently have another enrolled in ELC. Not only are the staff kind and caring (which is a hope you have in all daycares), the ELC supersede expectations by also coming alongside parents in the building up of children in the Lord. They do this with a spirit of accountability that you rarely see in any other academic institutions; the staff nurture and love, teach, correct, and encourage - and we are constantly amazed at the level of care they provide. PCA feels like an extension of our church family; we feel like that is the case because the of the culture of "living together as a church family" that comes from the leadership of the school.
    If you are considering PCA, know that your children will grow here: physically (my picky 3 year old eats so well here!), mentally (Montessori-like learning) emotionally and spiritually. Enrolling our children at PCA has been one of the best decisions we have ever made, and we would recommend it to any parent in a heartbeat.

  • My name is Bryan, I am a senior student who will be going to Boston with a team of 15 in April, 2013. This is my testimony of God's goodness in my life and how I became a child of God through Jesus Christ. Like many students at PCA, I grew up in a Christian environment. I was born into a Christian family and attended church and a Christian school my whole life. Growing up was relatively easy and simple for me. I didn't have any big problems with health or family. I grew up as a “good” Christian boy and I strived to maintain that persona by reading my bible and praying every morning/night as a routine. I would even carry around a small memo pad to write down significant verses and famous stories in the bible! Because my family would praise me sometimes for being such a “good Christian”, I continued to do good things, read the Bible and pray every day. When I look back, I can tell that a lot of my early Christian life was driven by fear and a reliance on my own moral effort. In grade nine, I began going to church with some of my classmates and through church and school and my Bible reading, the gospel became more and more real and precious to me. I understood I was a sinner and that the wages of sin is death. I understood that I needed God’ grace and mercy. And I understood that God demonstrated his grace and mercy through his Son, Jesus’ substitutionary and sacrificial death on the cross for me. From then on, I loved the gospel. I loved Christ. I continued to pray, read the bible, and journal. During these early years in high school, my life changed drastically because of this new relationship with Christ. I would pray with people at school and worship in the hallways without the fear of what people's thought of me! I wasn’t perfect, nor will I be anytime soon, but I was alive in Christ. Despite sin in my life, God gave me confidence that in repentance of sin and through faith in Jesus, my sins could be separated from me as far as the east is from the west. What a precious and a glorious truth! Jesus paid it all! All to him I owe. In March, 2012, I went with PCA to India for 2 weeks to serve with and learn from a former PCA student who is working with street children in Kolkata. During this trip, God opened my eyes to see his work and his glory in a different country and in a different culture. God gave me a passion for the homeless on the street as I worked with the street children in Kolkata. This was my first experience with “missions”. I came back from India pumped up to do the will of the Lord in Toronto, but was hindered by exhaustion physically, academically, and even spiritually. I contemplated reading my bible at times and allowed school work to take priority in my life. However, because of my experience in India, I was able to have a change in my lifestyle in the beginning of the summer that year. A lifestyle of evangelism began in me. Upon returning from India I began going with a few friends to malls, streets in downtown, and even bus rides to share the gospel with complete strangers that we met. In grade 11, I had taken a World Religions course here at PCA where I learned how different the message of the gospel is in comparison to the religious systems taught around the world. I was able to use what I learned in World Religions class and apply it as I shared the gospel on the streets of Toronto. I found great contentment and joy in sharing gospel! I was able to share the gospel and pray for random people freely during the summer wherever I went! That summer was a season of major growth and maturity for me as a Christian leader. This school year, God has been bringing me through multiple ups and downs. As a senior student, I am compiled with loads of work! God has been teaching me to surrender to him all of me – including my work, studies, and relationships. And from that, His blessings flow! God is constantly amazing me with the greatness and truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He is constantly refining me and making me more like him. Now some people may say, and I might even think myself, "You know, you're still young and your going to university soon, aren't you wasting your life living for Jesus?" I would tell them, "No, once you live in Christ, you know there's nothing better than to live for Jesus." Now I’m not perfect- not even close. Life is full of ups and downs. Through it all, God is still good and He is faithful. The more I read his word, the more I know the person of Jesus Christ and the more I trust my life in his hands. - Bryon Lok (Gr 12 student, Student Council President)

Many extremely fine individuals came out of Peoples, some of whom continue to give me inspiration and enrichment both personally and professionally.

  • PCA contributed to my life in huge ways, most of all by teaching me the unfiltered truths of God unashamedly, sending me across the world to share the Gospel with those who have never heard it and modeling for me what it means to not waste my life and instead live for the glory of God.
