Preschool Program (28 months – 4 years old)
For our Preschool program we have two classrooms, a Junior Preschool Room which can have 16 children and 2 Educators and a Senior Preschool Room which can have 24 children with 3 Educators. Both classrooms can have children 30 months – 4 years of age.
As mentioned we are a Reggio inspired centre and follow the children’s lead in regards to the activities we do and the materials available to the children. We provide activities and add new toys/materials based on the interest of the children.
The educators role is to be a co-learner and provide age appropriate activities for the children based on their conversations and observations of the children.
We have a great playground and spend time outdoors as much as we can. We are a rain or shine school and go out in all types of weather.
We provide a morning and afternoon snack and lunch. The children have a rest time from 12:30 – 2:30. We use an app called Brightwheel which allows staff to send you pictures of your child. At the end of the day you receive a report stating meals and nap time, along with the pictures and what the children are up to. This app also allows parents to connect to the teachers through email.
While we do accept children in a Preschool age grouping on a part time basis, spaces are very limited as priority goes to families needing full time care.
