2.5 - 4 years old

Educators offer a variety of activities, and experiences based on the emerging skills and interests of children. Art, games, loose parts play, sensory play and cooking all foster emerging language, literacy, numeracy and science skills such as observing, inferring and predicting. Dramatic play, music, movement and gross motor experiences also build language and social skills, and physical competency. When placed in a carefully planned environment, children learn to explore, differentiate, make choices, and understand more complex concepts. Viewing children as competent and capable, we encourage the development of independence, resilience and self-help skills. Our Preschoolers are given a morning and afternoon snack as well as a lunch that is prepared at the Centre each day. Our Preschoolers are brought outside twice a day for planned activities as well as independent play. Every day after lunch, our Preschoolers are given an opportunity to rest.
