Early learning experiences are fundamental to the development of the child. Quality preschool programs help to build a strong foundation for the child's physical, mental, emotional, and social development that prepare them for success later on in life.
Tykes and Tots is pleased to offer preschool programming for children ages 3 and 4 at Pope John Paul II School and St. George School. Our preschool programs follow the Ministry of Education's Early Learning Program Guide which is a play and exploration based curriculum. This emergent curriculum philosophy focuses on the holistic development of the child, including the social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional aspects. Activities are focused around the children's interests and include art activities, music, literacy, math concepts and play invitations. Project work follows the children's interests and can lead to development of many different interest areas.
In addition to daily structured activities, the children will be able to engage in free play in various interest centres to increase social and emotional skill development, self-regulation skills and communication skills.
