ABOUT OUR SCHOOL


We are pleased to offer high quality preschool programs for both 3 and 4 year old children at our preschool. In our programs we include circle times, gym time, snacks, as well as a variety of activities such as play, songs, stories, and art. Our programs are created to help your child's early development, speech, social skills, fine motor skills and so much more.

We are very fortunate to have access to multiple spaces within the Community Centre including the Upper Main Hall (indoor gym space) and and the outdoor field to enhance the physical education portion of our programs.

In a typical preschool day, the children can be seen painting, dressing-up, playing with instruments, building with blocks, working with puzzles, playing house, experimenting with play-dough, sand, water, soil, or rice, and exploring possibilities through preschool science concepts.

We promote developmentally appropriate literacy, math concepts and skills. Throughout the year, a variety of dramatic play centers are setup to encourage children to explore and understand their world.

Specifics

· Present in each class is a qualified teacher, a teacher’s assistant, and often a parent volunteers.

· Children are required to bring their own nut-free snack and drink to preschool each day.

Volunteer Parent Run Preschool

We are a non-profit, parent operated preschool. Each family is required to hold a volunteer position at the school. Having a volunteer parent run preschool allows us to offer exceptional education while minimizing the monthly cost associated per child. It allows parents to be a part of the school, running the day to day operations of the preschool. There are a variety of volunteer positions available allowing parents to choose to be involved in the classroom or for the working parent there are take home or evening options.

Please be advised that we require two post dated cheques in the amount of $80 to be cashed mid-year and at the end of the year only in the event a child's parent doesn't complete their volunteer requirements.

Class programs and schedule

Our preschool runs 5 days a week offering 2.5hrs morning or afternoon classes. Our morning classes follow a traditional preschool model. Our 3 year old program runs Tuesday/Thursday and our 4 year old program runs Monday/Wednesday/Friday.

The 2018/2019 school year will be our first year offering afternoon classes and it will be a combined class for both 3 and 4 year olds running Tuesday/Thursday.

Please note that children are not able to attend both the morning and afternoon program on the same day as per our licensing requirements.  

On a case by case basis we may be able to offer program flexibility to better fit your family's needs. Please contact us for more information.
