We believe that through meaningful play children build a solid foundation for later learning. Our play-based child centered program reflects the integration of early literacy and language development, numeracy, discovery, social and emotional relationships, music, drama, art, and physical fitness areas for the total development of the child.
We make every effort to provide an environment that reflects the lives and cultural heritages of our children and educators. We celebrate seasonal and cultural festivals; we include natural and loose parts in play and encourage the children to use their imaginations.
An essential part of the preschool is that families become actively involved in the operation and evaluation of the preschool through their participation. This includes assisting the teachers in the class or by serving on the Board of Directors.
It is the responsibility as Early Childhood Educators to provide each child with a positive, nurturing, safe and secure environment. Of the utmost importance to us is the safety and wellbeing of the children. We support this through ensuring staff provide a Criminal Record Check, Child Social Services Check and are trained in First Aid/CPR and the carrying out of fire and lockdown drills.
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 goes a long way towards serving as a readiness bridge to school.
