  • water table play
  • dressing up and pretend play in the two storey play house
  • playdough
  • science discoveries
  • working with manipulatives such as blocks, cars, puzzles and trains


Circle Time:
 
Teachers lead a group time (with lots of child participation) and share music and songs, stories, group games and have discussions on a variety of topics.

Snack Time
: At snack time we sit together and share a healthy snack (Each family takes turns providing the snack).

Outdoor Play: 
We try to go outside each day. Attached to the preschool is a fenced playground, with lots of space to run, play, climb the playground, and use various types of outdoor play equipment. We also may go for a walk up to the Queen’s Park playground or just for a stroll through the park to explore and enjoy the nature around us.
