Our Primary Focus  

Our program is built on the four foundations of learning; Expression, Belonging, Well-Being, and Engagement.
Through a focus on these foundations we are able to construct an educationally-rich and holistic learning environment in which young children can develop a variety of skills.

Expression

Children are encouraged to find their voice and communicate in a variety of different ways. To find their voice, they are supported in describing their experiences, interests, and environment in a variety of different ways. They are offered opportunities to test different means of communicating with both peers and adults.   

Belonging

Children are encouraged to find their place in the classroom community as a bridge to finding their place in the wider world. Our school environment allows children to form positive, responsive, and nurturing relationships with both peers and educators. These strong relationships help them establish a sense of belonging in the wider world.  

Well-Being

Children are encouraged to feel confident and secure in themselves. The school environment should support not only physical health and security but also emotional comfort. Educators support children in taking care of themselves and each other and foster their sense of self-confidence.  

Engagement

Children are encouraged to interact with and learn from their environment. Educators observe the childrens ideas, interests, perspectives, and experiences and reflect them in the planned curriculum and environment. This creates a space that is both safe for and supportive of meaningful exploration, play, and inquiry.  

 

Our Pre-School. Our Family. Our Community

The co-operative approach encourages parents and teachers to share ideas, socialize, make connections, build community and cohesively create meaningful learning experiences for every child in the program. 

We strive to balance the consistency that your children’s education requirements with the flexibility needed by the modern parent.

Our preschool offers age-specific programs for children 18 months old to 6 years old.
