Ages 2.5 – 4  |  Ratio 1:8

Program offered at: St. Gabriel Child Care Centre

Once children enter our preschool program they are ready for any challenge that comes their way.  Children of this age are true inquirers. It’s the stage where you will hear the question why? They are ready to start finding the answers on their own, in fact they delight in taking ownership over the learning process. Through games, songs, stories and physical and play based experiences children will develop socially emotionally, cognitively and physically. Literacy and numeracy are also explored. Our approach is to integrate these skills into all that we do, while taking the lead from the child in regards to their interests and inquiry. Our educators will move in and out of play to support exploration and discovery. We encourage children to express their feelings, expand learning by asking open ended questions and support their problem solving skills and self regulation development with guidance and modeling.  We view the child as competent and capable and base our programming on their interests and what they say and do.  Observations are then documented and used to provide provocations for further learning opportunities. The educators see themselves collaborators in learning and play. We incorporate “Handwriting without Tears” program in our activities. We encourage belonging, connections and engagement as we celebrate the child.

Children are eligible for our preschool program at approximately 24 months of age. Children must be toilet trained.
