PHILOSOPHY & STAFF
Our Preschool philosophy is learning through play. Play provides children with opportunities to investigate, develop and practice skills. We encourage the preschoolers to explore, discover, create, socialize and have fun. We support this by offering choices within a framework, facilitating problem solving and encouraging curiosity.
The emphasis in our program is on process learning. We believe it is important to promote process learning as children are still trying things out. As well, young children are interested in ‘doing’ rather than producing a product. However, we do introduce some more ongoing projects, particularly creating memento items for special occasions.
Socialization is a huge part of our preschool. Learning to get along with others, cooperation and sharing, and managing in a group setting are all skills that will play a major role when your child goes to Kindergarten and will prepare your child for the school years to follow. We methodically introduce and reinforce these fundamental interpersonal skills that will assist children as they embark on their school experience.
“It takes a whole village to raise a child.” We actively promote community engagement in our classroom by including guest visitors, field trips and many program family parties to enhance the program and expand the village for our students.
Our preschool manager is Cathy Roberts, an Early Childhood Educator (Licensed ECE). Cathy works in our program as the lead teacher and program coordinator with the support of an assistant.
