Our preschool is based on learning through play, which means that everything we offer to the children is there to teach and reinforce both the social & educational skills the children will need for their school years. We change the areas and toys within each area to offer different and progressive experiences that continue to challenge the children throughout the year.
Each class has 20 children, 3 teachers and 1 parent helper each day. The children are together for calendar time at the beginning of class, snack time & story time at the end of class. During art/classroom time & gym time upstairs, the group is divided into two groups of 10.
We celebrate popular holidays like Easter & Halloween, we have a short concert at Christmas & end of the year, and mark each child's birthday with a special snack the parents bring in to share with the class. We have silly days like hat day or pj day and give the children a taste of different cultures by celebrating Cinco de Mayo, Chinese New Year and Marde Gras.
Once a month we have a popcorn and cartoon day for 20 min at the end of class. Weather depending we will take the children outside to the school play structures or our front grass. We plan for 1 field trip per year, such as the science centre, gymnastics adventure or Royal Sask Museum, gymnastics adventure, YMCA, or floral conservatory
