The preschool program (toilet trained to 4 or 5 years old attending daycare in morning and no school or school in afternoon):
my preschool program apart from all the rest? It’s more than a program that has
been carefully researched and thoughtfully taught, it’s the fact that I
approach everyday with imagination, innovation and, most of all, fun! Studies
have found that learning improves when children are engaged in an enjoyable and
meaningful activity. That’s why the curriculum includes a variety of intriguing
activities that stimulate early brain development with a focus on creative
play. And although it may all look like kids having fun, it’s also learning in
action. It’s just another way that I make sure your child gets the most out of
his or her preschool experience.
Additionally, I spend a lot of time just listening to and talking with preschoolers. This type of positive interaction encourages the development of emotional, language, and social skills and enhances the development of a positive self-esteem. I also provide lots of opportunities for each child to develop personal interests at his or her own pace.
To ensure that children are kept interested, excited, and engaged in learning, I incorporate preschool curriculums that are just the right fit for your preschool child.
Language— We often have both English and French children attending the daycare… play may progress in either language, but the learning activities and caregiver guided activities are always in French. I make a point of identifying core words during play and meal times to enhance your child’s ability to recognize and speak in French.
Low ratio— There is never more than 5 children in the infant/toddler and preschool programs (inclusive).Which allows for more individualized attention, flexibility and less sick days!
Outdoor Play— There is a fenced outside area designed to provide a safe and interesting place to play and explore when weather conditions are appropriate.
Snacks and lunch— The children eat 2 snacks and 1 lunch. They learn to make choices, select their own prepared snack, and enjoy the company of others in the daycare as they eat. If your child attends school , you are responsible for school foods needed.
All food is provided and follows the Canadian food guide.
Dental Hygeine— The children will brush their teeth after lunch every day to promote good dental hygiene.
