Preschool - 2.5 to 4 years
Sample of Daily Activities
A variety of toys fall into manipulatives like objects for sorting, puzzles, Lego, gears, etc. These toys allow the children to develop such skills as fine motor, problem solving, eye-hand coordination, shape and colour recognition and classification.
The children work together using a variety of materials while developing language, social skills, problem solving, and self-regulation.
While exploring sand, water and other sensory materials, the children are practicing scientific and math concepts; dry to wet, sink & float, measurement, etc.
At group or circle time, our preschoolers greet each other and learn awareness of other children. They learn that each child is valued as a member of the group. During group time, educators read stories, sing songs, play games, and explore music and movement.
Twice a day, the preschoolers go to the playground or for a neighbourhood walk. Playing in sandboxes, collecting leaves, and outdoor art activities teach children practical life skills while offering a tremendous amount of fun. Playing outside reduces stress levels, promote social skills, and allows for exploring and discovery.
