Piece of Bradford History Finds New Life

Old School Welcoming Children Again

An old Bradford high school will soon welcome a new batch of kids, thanks to a recent sale.

The town of Bradford-West Gwillimbury had sold the old Bradford High School property on Queen St. to Eh to Zed Preschool Canada. The company is expected to revamp the structure as an early learning centre with all-day daycare and educational programming for kids up to preschool age.

“We’re excited to become the new stewards of this historic building and offer our educational programs and services to the growing Bradford community,” said CEO Shadi Almashni, owner of the Bradford “Queen of Queen Street” Campus of Preschool Canada.

This comes as welcome news to Mayor Rob Keffer “As more families choose to make BWG their home, daycare and early childhood education are in tremendous demand, so we are very pleased to welcome Preschool Canada to our community.

The Queen Street high school was originally built in 1923, eventually sold by the Simcoe County District School Board to the Town of Bradford-West Gwillimbury, in order to “ensure the important heritage building would continue to be enjoyed by many more generations” according to a statement from the Town.
