The preschool program consists of children from
approximately 2-1/2 to 5 years of age. The Preschool
program is one which will encourage
all aspects of your child's development.
Our day is full of a variety of activities to keep
the children busy, happy and learning.
our program we work with five
levels. Each level is made available in all
of the learning areas and we plan activities in
each of them. We want children to be able to make
choices, when they decide they are ready for the
next challenge they will move up to the next level.
We also teach children about choices and consequences.
We have special themes that we plan our activities
around e.g. Safety, Nursery Rhymes, Community, and
at times staff may work the WEB or Portfolio planning
style. Our crafts and circle time incorporate these
themes along with providing a socially interactive
time for children during these activities. We also
offer time during the day for group discussion,
stories (quiet time), one/one attention and gross
Our rooms are arranged into various learning centers
such as: art, role-play,
computer, sensory, circle time and table top.
Children are encouraged to move freely from area
to area choosing activities they wish to participate
in. We provide a variety of activities and experiences
that promote: independence,
self-help skills, confidence and individuality.
As with most workplaces our Preschool Program also,
is made up of a variety of different people, with
differing styles of doing things. Their ideas and
personalities make our team successful in providing
an excellent curriculum
for your child. We all have an important thing in
common, that is caring for your children and ensuring
that their needs are
met, to the best of our ability. For more
information on the staff please see the picture
board located outside our room and ask them questions
about their experience, be proactive. A general
log book or display board is kept in an area for
your viewing on the activities and menu changes
your child has enjoyed each day.
This program has been in existence since 1989. It
was originally called our Pre-readiness program.
With the public school system introducing a junior
kindergarten program, we felt it would be in the
best interest of our families to model our program
on the curriculum offered by the Ministry of Education,
and yet still maintain our mandate of easing the
children into a more conforming style of learning.
In this manner, we believe we have designed a program
the gives your child the very best in ratio's, tutoring
and teaching in preparation for Kindergarten within
the Ministry of Education school system, along with
a very strong basic academic start.
