The principal of a Montessori child-care facility in Oakville, Ont., is facing child-pornography charges.

Halton regional police say they arrested James (Robert) Thompson, 58, on Wednesday.

Thompson is charged with possessing and accessing child pornography.

They say the charges relate to incidents that did not happen at the privately owned Willowglen Montessori School.

The provincially licensed facility is for children aged 18 months to five years old.

The Ministry of Education and Children's Aid Society are investigating.
