    Learn More About Preschool

    Learning through Play is at the heart of our teaching philosophy.

    Our focus is on building the often overlooked but essential social and foundation skills required for the academic years.

    Critical thinking, collaboration and creative problem solving are the essential modes of learning in our programme.

    Play is our brain’s favourite way of learning!

    Our Preschool program strengthens early childhood development. Our focus is on building the essential skills for future school success.

    Emotional & Social Skills:

    The curriculum focuses on building 7 key emotional and social skills in a fun and caring environment by:

    • Encouraging curiosity
    • Promoting cooperation
    • Developing communication
    • Learning intentionality
    • Building confidence
    • Creating relatedness
    • Strengthening self-control

    Foundation Skills:
    Children are also introduced to school skills such as letters, letter sounds, numbers and problem-solving through games and art.

    We offer a positive environment combining the STEAM with School Skills approach, enabling children to develop the social and foundation skills for future school success by learning through play.

    STEAM
    The STEAM approach to learning uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics experiments and activities as access points for dialogue and critical thinking. The end results are active toddlers who engage in experimental learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!

    School Skills
    The school skills curriculum help children make that important transition to academic learning. Our programme instils curiosity and a genuine love of  learning. Early literacy and mathematical skills are established through storytelling, experimental and logic games. Activities require cooperation, self-awareness, and encourage communication with peers.

    Classes include both independent and group learning activities combined with Sports and Music.

    Each class includes a wide array of activities that encourage peer interaction, independent learning, and the capacity to communicate.

    These group experiences will help children develop the ability to follow directions, take turns and build confidence to accomplish new skills.

    While a daily routine is important for children, programmes vary daily overarched by weekly themes.

    A strong rapport with parents allows effective communication about the progress children are making in class.

    Our teachers value the parents’ role in their child’s life and take time to share the learning experience.

    We care about the well-being of the preschoolers and ensure a low number of preschoolers per teacher.

    While English is the main program language, the discovery and exploration of French is encouraged through peer communication and group activities.

    Enrolments can vary from 1 to 5 days per week.

    Announced missed classes can be made up by coming to any other Preschool or English Kids Club class, subject to availability.
