Preschoolers- 2.5 to 4 years

Welcome to the preschooler group. This program is for children aged 2.5 to 4 years.

Preschooler classes have a capacity of between 16 and 24 children. Most children will stay in our classes for two years before leaving for school when they turn 4. Our activity programs are based on the principles established by the Ministry of Education on learning through play. The latest findings in neuroscience research are clear: learning through play develops math, language, social and emotional, and motor skills while instilling a love of learning. Our education teams work alongside your children by organizing varied, thought-out activities for them based on play and exploration.

Curriculums created each week are based on the educator team’s (educator and assistant) observations of your children. Our curriculums propose activities appropriate to the developmental capabilities of the children and their individual needs. In the context of daily life, our pedagogy is based on positive and caring education.(Example of weekly programming)
