Early Years Program

The Wonder Of Early Years

Our youngest learners experience the wonder of learning through a play-based program filled with learning engagements in all areas. Their social and emotional well-being and development are at the forefront of what we do as the children learn and play together.

Led By Experts

Our teachers are creative, energetic, organized and love learning. We employ teaching strategies that facilitate a high level of skill acquisition from the early years, ensuring that your child has the best start to their educational journey.

We Play, We Learn

Our young learners are given the freedom to explore and play within structured lessons, gently supported by our specialist educators, creating the optimal environment for authentic, powerful learning. Our curriculum offers imaginative play and inquiry-based learning, individualized for every child, promoting language and literacy skills as well as social-emotional learning.

We Are Happy

Centered around building respectful relationships, and teaching important social and life skills, we employ Positive Discipline™, a research-based program that aims to develop our learners’ social and emotional needs in order to build a solid foundation for lifelong learning and wellbeing. This is combined with the Zones of Regulation framework, which helps children identify and manage their emotions. Both programs are embedded into the everyday life of a child while at school.

We Are Loved

We are passionate about teaching with kindness, compassion and patience, creating a respectful and empathetic classroom atmosphere, where every student is valued and cared for. Our educators are genuinely motivated by inspiring the joy of learning in our littlest learners. An experienced counselor with background in play and art works with our students to help them express themselves creatively and develop emotionally and socially. Routines help children easily transition from home to school and back again; as well as throughout the day

We Are Family

We get to know every child and their family, creating a home-away-from-home with a caring, family-focused environment, where students look forward to coming to school every day. We encourage family involvement as a key to ensuring your child’s success at school. From daily informal touch points to community events and parent conferences, our high-contact approach ensures parents are involved and informed at every step of their child’s learning
