Who We Are
Our exciting licensed preschool programs offers Kindergarten readiness activities for three and four year olds and an early learning program for two year olds.
123 West 16th Avenue
Children learn by experience. It is our responsibility to provide a stimulating environment where children develop social and emotionally, as well as intellectually, physically and creatively. We treat each child as an individual with his or her unique needs and abilities. Our program provides a comfortable and supportive setting with a focus on the needs and development of children.
Your child is attending a structured but flexible Preschool program. Play is the main tool for learning and expressing feelings. This program follows a daily routine that includes non-teacher directed time and develops in every child a sense of security and well-being. A seasonal theme is also followed and developed in each of our activity centres.
The activity centres include: a creative play area, art, blocks, dramatic play, library, music, sand and water, science, and puzzles corner. Through these areas children receive opportunities to gain new skills, values, and stimulating experiences in a safe healthy environment.
Our daily program consists of both structured and non-structured activities:
Arts and Crafts
