We have two preschool programs at our 5th Avenue location. These two programs work closely together which allows the children to have access to many extra activities, spaces, equipment, materials and experiences.
Our programs are built on a foundation of warm, affectionate, and understanding relationships between teachers, children and parents. We maintain an open, welcoming, and multicultural approach at all times.
Children experience positive social interactions with teachers and peers. Self-help skills are encouraged throughout the daily routine. Dressing, toileting, eating and tidy up are all learning opportunities. As well, children are encouraged to make choices from available activities and centres. Both self- help and self- selection experiences help to increase your child’s feelings of competence , independence , and self- esteem. Your child will be with a primary educator within a group of 8 children. Learning time and lunch will happen with the primary educator. All educators teach and program for the whole group during the day.
We are implementing the provincial "How does learning happen?" curriculum in our programs. The children’s interests are the basis for our curriculum.
