September 2017 - Gradual Entry Schedule
As we recognize how important it is for young children to feel comfortable and safe while at the Preschool, we provide a Gradual Entry during the first month.
This Gradual Entry helps the children familiarize themselves with the play centres, routines of the day, their play mates and the teachers. We welcome parents or caregivers to stay with their children to help them settle in and feel comfortable with the transition. The teachers recognize how difficult it can be for some children to separate from the parents or caregivers and vice versa. Returning children are able to re-settle into their new classes and meet new friends.
Gradual Entry Hours
Pre-School classes will begin Tuesday, September 5, 2017.

Know You Can! The Little Preschool That Could
Highly experienced, qualified and Licensed Early Childhood Educators will develop a rich and meaningful child-centered
environment in which children can learn and grow in all areas of development. Our program will include the exploration of Art
Throughout History, from which children will gain an understanding of art and the importance of creativity. Through hands on experimentation and exploration of a variety of materials, techniques, ideas and information, we will experience the journey of art through the ages. We will also highlight multiculturalism and diversity, celebrations, dance and languages from around the world. We offer a part time, or full time program from September to June.
Our Centre welcomes students from several post-secondary schools to do their practicum learning and training within the Preschool program. It is out ongoing mission to actively participate in the development of high quality Early Childhood Educators. All students and volunteers undergo a thorough criminal record and health check prior to acceptance into our facility. Their bio's are posted at the preschool entrance, where you can learn about their individual backgrounds and interests.
Registration will take place in the Spring (for external families). If the formal registration is missed, please call 604.718.5843 for more information. Registration is on-going throughout the school year dependent on availability of spaces.

Preschool is a place for children to grow and flourish intellectually, artistically, physically, socially and emotionally. During this process children develop language skills, test their abilities, acquire new skills, understand concepts and develop an awareness of themselves and others.
