We Want To Get To Know Your Child

All children must be toilet trained before they can attend our program.
Children will not be allowed to attend preschool or daycare classes if they are not, and their spot may be given to another family. We do not have the facilities for diapers and, although we understand accidents happen, we do not have the staff to consistently deal with the sanitary and time requirements if a child is not toilet trained.
Thank you for your understanding.
Our preschool classes at our centre, in Victoria BC, follow a structured program with flexibility depending of the needs of the children. A typical preschool class child will have the opportunity to learn through play.
Children will have “free play” where the children can choose from a number of toys and activities. Children will participate in “circle time” with story telling, calendar, songs and discussions. The children will also be provided with outside experiences in the form of playing with toys and equipment as well as structured games and walks. As well, the children will have use of the school gym during poorer weather.
We also have snack time (provided by the family). Children do get the opportunity to participate in some of the school assemblies.
The preschool is designed to focus on the needs of the children while still creating a fun, positive experience to learn and grow.
Early Learning Daycare Program
A typical Daycare day will be similar to Preschool in regards to following a structured program with flexibility according to the needs of the children.
Children will have “free play” with time to choose from a number of toys and activities. There will be snack times and a lunch time in the middle of the day. (Food provided by the families.)
The children will also be provided with outside experiences in the form of playing with toys and equipment as well as structured games and walks. The children will have use of the gym during poorer weather.
Depending on the needs of the children there will be a quiet / nap time in the afternoon where the children can rest and relax.
As well, we have a “circle time” with stories, songs and discussions for the children to enjoy.
The Day Care is designed to focus on the needs of the children while still creating a fun, positive environment to play and grow.
