We currently have three different half day programs that are offered either 2, 3 or 5 days a week. If you have any questions about the programs listed below, please feel free to reach out!
All programs feature an emergent curriculum that is student led through play and project based learning. We encourage children to explore their interests as we teach alongside them. Learn more about our curriculum
3 Year Old Program
9:00AM - 11:30AM
The 3 year old program is structured as an opportunity to slowly introduce younger students into a school setting, encouraging them to explore everything the classroom has to offer.
From routines, to relationships, the teachers help support the children every step of the way, building confidence and independence.
Once the children are comfortable, and the teachers are confident in
the students abilities, the class will
start to venture to the outdoor classroom, where students can connect their learning to the natural outdoor environment around them,
as well as take excursions to explore one of the children's favourite destinations, the park and open
green space across the street.
4 Year Old Program
9:00AM - 11:30AM
Building up from the 3 year old program, the 4 year old program attends school three mornings a week, preparing students for a smooth transition to kindergarten.
The school year starts with children finding their way back into the school routine, but this time with more independence and confidence. The class explores the outdoor classroom right away, harvesting in the garden, and starting to learn letters and sounds.
In the new year, the teachers start to implement their kindergarten readiness program, which encourages the development of skills that the children will take with them to be capable and confident as they start kindergarten.
Learners and Leaders
3 and 4 Year Old Program
Monday - Friday
1:00PM - 3:30PM
An opportunity to learn from a diverse group of educators, the Learners and Leaders program combines both 3 and 4 year old students for an opportunity to develop a robust collection of relationships with their peers.
Older students are provided an opportunity to become leaders, developing a strong sense of empathy and learning the importance of team work, while the younger students are motivated and encouraged to engage in activities by watching and interacting with the older students.
Highlights from both the 3 and 4 year old programs are brought into the classroom, with lots of opportunities for the teachers to break into groups to accommodate different academic development.
