We are excited to offer a full day program for our pre-primary age children. In this room, children benefit from a curriculum guided by “Capable, Confident and Curious: Nova Scotia’s Early Learning Framework” all while being provided full day care, maintaining child care regulated ratios 1:8, snacks/lunches, programs and community outings.
The Educators in this room are Ali Sweet and Kellie Sheals.
We promote school-readiness by:
*Social and emotional development using “Handle with Care”, “Circle of Security” and “Incredible Flexible You” : confidence, problem solving, empathy, resiliency etc.
* Encouraging independent skills: toilet training, zipping, buttoning, dressing, feeding etc.
* Pre-literacy skills: intro to letter recognition, phonics, sequencing, rhyming, repeating etc.
* Pre-writing: drawing shapes, drawing with purpose, intro to letter formation, strengthen pincer grip, etc.
* Basic math: number recognition, counting, predicting, hypothisizing, puzzles
