You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.

This classroom was specially designed for our Tots who miss the Kindergarten cut off but have mastered all of the Preschool Enrichment skills. Typically our Pre-Kindergarten children have completed a full year in the Preschool Enrichment Program and are ready for new challenges and opportunities.

Age: 5 – 6 years
  1. Kindergarten skills – A majority of the Pre-Kindergarten Programming is based on the Kindergarten and Grade one curriculum.
  2. Focus on Independence – Children are active participants in their environment. They take part in maintaining, preparing and organizing their learning environment.
  3. Scaffolding learning – Typically the children in the Pre-Kindergarten program are working on literacy skills such as beginning reading and writing.
  4. Access to materials – The Pre-Kindergarten classroom has open access to art materials including scissors, paint and markers. An emphasis on being a respectful artist and taking care of their learning environment helps to promote good choices with open ended materials.
