Preschool program

Preschool programs are offered two mornings or two afternoons per week, and on Friday morning as an add-on program. Our days usually look like this:

  • Gross motor activities take place either outside in our fully-fenced playground or in the gym. Children play with a variety of riding toys, balls and sports equipment, and are encouraged to play active games. When playing outdoors, they are encouraged to put their outdoor clothes in their cubbies upon returning inside.

  • During carpet time, we learn about our current theme through discussion, songs and games. We also explore concepts related to numbers, matching and colour recognition.

  • For snack time, children wash their hands, get their cups and sit at a snack table to enjoy a nutritious snack. After snack, the children put away their own snack supplies.

  • During free play, children choose from activities such as play dough, sand box, arts and crafts, puzzles, dramatic play, books, blocks and a rotating variety of other toys.

  • At tidy up time, everyone helps tidy up the classroom.

  • For song and reading time, we do a calendar and weather chart with the children. Starting in late October, we introduce a letter each week from the Jolly Phonics program

  • Life Skills such as dressing and taking care of personal needs help build self confidence and independence.

  • Other activities in the preschool program include science experiments, baking, field trips and an occasional visitor from the community.
