Sunny View Junior and Senior Public School's Mission Statement

Sunny View Public School has served the needs of elementary students with physical disabilities for over 60 years. Sunny View is now a dual-track school, supporting students with developmental disabilities as well. Admission to Sunny View is determined through the T.D.S.B. Special Education Department. At Sunny View, we are focused on eliminating barriers to learning for our students by providing a welcoming environment where students with developmental and physical disabilities can participate in programs that have been specifically designed to meet their educational needs.  We provide safe opportunities for students to develop their independence and take risks to the best of their ability.

*   IPRC referrals must be initiated through the student's 'home school'.   To locate your 'home school', consult and follow the links, "Top Ten" and "Find Your School".  Contact the Principal of the home school for further information.

Specialized Programs and Services

Sunny View students benefit from a wide range of specialized programs that afford optimal inclusion including an Accessible Playground, Adapted Aquatics, Snoezelen Room, Expressive Arts and Gross Motor programs.
A team of St. Elizabeth Health Care nurses, contracted through Community Care Access Services (CCAC), are stationed at the school to provide essential nursing services to students identified with specialized health care needs.

Sunny View students benefit from a wide range of  concrete learning experiences and opportunities to develop life skills which maximize individual independence and choice making. 
 Students regularly participate in a wide range of house league sports and activities including wheel chair hockey, adapted games and choir.   Students participate annually in TDSB initiatives such as the "Barrier Free Cross Country Meet" and "Folkfest".
Students enjoy regular outings into the community to expand their knowledge, hobbies and interests, and to  generalize functional daily living skills.  These field excursions are made possible with the support of TDSB Transportation Services and the Toronto Not-for-Profit Bus Organization.


Sunny View is committed to eliminating all barriers to learning for our students. Non-speaking students or those with limited speech benefit from access to alternative and augmentative communication tools.


The school's broad range of programs and activities are made possible through active and ongoing partnerships between parents, staff and community organizations.  In conjunction with the Sunny View Youth Involvement Association, our School Council provides annual funds toward the Sunny View summer camp, aquatic program, field trips, Snoezelen Room, school performances, among other activities.
