Fundraising & Events

All funds raised throughout the school year go towards supporting programming at our nursery school.

Mabel’s Labels

When your child joins GCNS, we ask that their clothing, shoes and personal items are all clearly labelled. Mabel’s Labels offers a wide range of personalised labels for clothing, shoes, bags, and other items that are guaranteed to stay on and last (they even have instant wash-off labels for potluck/bake sale dishes!).

Just follow the link, make sure you search “Glebe Co-operative Nursery School” and then start shopping. Mabel’s Labels will then donate 20% of your purchase back to us!

Scholastic Book Orders

Looking for some new stories to read at home? Scholastic offers a large range of affordably priced books for all ages!

Just follow the link, select your books and enter our class code: RC900001 at check out. For every order you place that’s over $30 we’ll receive 20% back in rewards (and you’ll get free shipping)!

Purdy’s Chocolate Fundraiser

Twice a year GCNS places orders with Purdy’s Chocolatier for the Christmas and Easter seasons. You can choose from a curated chocolate collection available in their seasonal catalogue. A delicious way to give back to our school. 

Equator Coffee Orders

Every two months we submit a coffee order with Equator Coffee Roasters. This coffee is fair trade and organic and roasted just outside of Ottawa and this fundraiser helps both you and our school. Please email for more information.

GCNS uses the team fundraising app FlipGive. This app allows our school to earn money on the things our members are already buying. You can use this app to make purchases on the things you normally make like groceries, restaurants and online shopping and we earn a percentage. For more information and the school code please email
