In Richmond Hill, preschool programs are generally for children between 2 ½ and 4 years old. It provides more independence than our toddler program and we encourage your child to be curious, competent and capable. The ratio for preschool is 8 children to 1 teacher but we often have extra staff available to assist in the rooms and outdoor play.
We have three big bright preschool rooms that are stocked with all the necessary tools for children to learn through play, exploration, creative art, music and science. In addition to the classrooms, we have amazing park-like outdoor playgrounds, an in-ground pool open during July and August as well as a big indoor gym for days that the weather doesn't allow us to go outside.
Our teachers all have been trained on the “How Does Learning Happen” approach to teaching; this means our teachers know how to create interesting learning experiences based on your child’s interests. The teachers first get to know each child, through engaging and exploring with them. Those experiences are then brought into the classroom to make learning fun and enjoyable.
If you have more questions, we invite you to call us or come in for a tour .
