A child's success in life begins with a good self image. For the child, self-esteem is nurtured through positive interactions with peers, adults and the environment in which they are a part of. We believe that learning begins at birth and continues with everything a child does.
Our mission is to offer a preschool program which builds self-confidence, self respect and independence within an environment that stimulates fun and discovery through learning.
We use Montessori materials to refine the 5 senses and teach Language, Mathematics, Science, Geography, and improve fine motor skills.
Practice life exercises are also incorporated into daily activities (cleaning up after activities, cooking, pouring, gardening, sweeping and beading etc).
We have highly qualified staff trained in the careful observation of children. Through observation, the staff is able to create an environment that best suits the needs and interests of the child.
We believe all children should have the opportunity to grow and develop in their own unique way.
Our curriculum consists of various activities that enhance different developmental areas for the child. These activities are always available for the child to choose from at our preschool. Through direct interaction with the environment the child grows emotionally, socially, physically, creatively, and intellectually.
Other areas of our curriculum include Manipulative Play and Dramatic Play.
We believe in giving children freedom within a structure, with the following goals:
- The development of problem-solving skills
- Exposure to concepts in Math, Language, Arts, Practical living skills, Science, Sensory, Nature, Art, Self Expression, Books and Writing.
- Promote one's individual strengths and talents.
- To develop self-confidence, independence, autonomy and competency.
- To develop skills for positive social interaction with peers and adults.
- To develop awareness and appreciation of cultural diversity.
