Nurturing children in the joy of learning through play.
Our play-based approach allows for individual differences while stimulating curiosity, creativity and cognitive development.
With more than 40 years of experience, we deliver an exceptional program that is designed to enhance your children's well-being, nurture positive relationships, and support movement, curiosity and play. We explore different themes with the children, which guides our curriculum planning. We encourage them to engage with a sense of wonder and independence.
We are proud to offer small class sizes, with a child/teacher ratio of 1:8, facilitating strong relationships and attention to every child's unique needs. We have two classrooms side by side, children 3 & 4 years old, 4 & 5 years old. We have also added long days, with a 9:00am to 2:40 pm full preschool day! Call us for more information.
If you want to know more about our philosophy feel free to schedule a tour to meet us. We are proud to follow the BC Early Learning Frame work, as the principles of our curriculum planning. Our center is open Monday to Friday, from 9:00 am to 2:40 pm. These are our flexibles times:
1. Morning session is from 9:00 /12:30.
2. Afternoon session starts at 11:00/2:40.
3. Full-day is from 9:00 to 2:40.
We offer a French enriched program thanks to our fantastic Teacher Madame Natalie Platel, a North Shore resident, with over 30 years of experience. With her AIM approach, she fills the rooms with lovely French tunes, and the children learn many basic vocabulary words, greetings, shapes, numbers, and much more! She is currently teaching Monday and Thursday mornings. Our Music Teacher Katie Brook comes every Wednesday and delights the children with her songs and instruments.
We are also proud to partner with the Ministry of Children and Family development to offer you the Parent Fee Reduction Fee Initiative if you attend the full day program, and we are registered to claim for Affordable Childs Care Benefit Payments if you have qualified.
We'd love to show you around! Please note that at this time visits are only by appointment only. No visitors are allowed inside the building unless authorized and arranged by our Staff. Feel free to call us or email us for more information!
