NEW DROP IN CLASSES 

Brooks Preschool is a not-for-profit organization which provides an early childhood learning resource to the community of Brooks and County of Newell.  We have classes available for 3, 4 and 5 year old children. Each class is two or three hours in duration and is offered one, two or three days per week. Operated under the guidance and direction of a volunteer Board of Directors, we currently have three staff members comprised of two teachers and one classroom assistant. 


The Brooks Preschool is licensed through the Southeastern Alberta Child and Family Services. 

 

Mission Statement

The Brooks Preschool provides a quality play-based educational experience for early childhood learners in our community.

 

Philosophy

We believe children learn best through meaningful play. Play is the medium of basic learning in the early years and is the foundation for continued learning. Our play-based child centered program reflects the integration of age appropriate literacy and language development, numeracy, discovery, social and emotional relationships; music, drama, art and physical fitness areas for the total development of the child.


An essential part of the preschool is that all families become actively involved in the operation and evaluation of the preschool through their participation. This includes assisting the qualified teacher in the class on a regular basis, or serving on the Board of Directors.


We believe the primary function of a good preschool is to help each child achieve and enjoy the fullest development possible for them. An experience in preschool will serve as a readiness bridge to school.
