Preschool Program

At preschool, we encourage our children to learn about different cultures, the calendar (months, days of the week, etc.), the seasons, basic math, reading, writing and much more.

We believe by having a preschool program in our centre children learn how to take turns, share ideas, and socialize in groups.

Daycare Program

In our daily program we strive to provide children with an environment which encourages fine motor and gross motor skills development. We focus on enhancing children’s ability to develop emotionally, socially, intellectually while building self- esteem, confidence, and a sense of belonging.

Some of our fine motor activities includes: painting, play dough fun, puzzles, arts, crafts, baking, lego, music instruments, train, cars, trucks and much more.

Some of our gross motor activities includes: dramatic play, parachute play, sports such as soccer, hockey, baseball, yoga, ballet classes, climbing, field trips, outdoor adventures, nature/park walks, and much more.

Discipline and Behaviour

Our Child Care Educators have a positive guidance, incorporating creative teaching and involvement to help children develop self-discipline and inner control over their actions. This is based on mutual respect and an understanding of children's needs and development. Educators provide positive guidance such as redirection, consistency of rules, and acceptance of feelings, firmness, and fairness. Children are encouraged to express their feelings verbally or physically to discuss and resolve conflicts or misunderstanding between each other.
