237 days ago Awesome place for children. My kids went there and now my grandson goes there. Safe and fun.
241 days ago This incredible preschool has the most loving and dedicated staff working with our children. I will try to capture just some of what they do that makes them so incredible and so deserving: - love our children and provide them with a safe, clean and kind place to grow and learn. - lead by an example of patience and gentleness - apply for grants on behalf of their students to meet their needs. - Liaise with early development workers and schools. - implement all parts of Canadian and world culture - celebrate our city and teach our children about community. - constantly working on their own program development. - teach inclusivity (this years Christmas pageant the children performed a couple of songs in ASL). I could go on and on but instead will leave it at this- my family will forever hold a special place in our hearts for the teachers who have made such an impression on our children.
