Walk into the Preschool and you immediately sense joy, love and learning. It’s a happy place: teachers and students respect one another and are genuinely curious about the world around them.

The school day is based on a unique blend of fun and learning in a supportive and nurturing environment. Teachers encourage emerging independence and present opportunities for children to develop as individuals and as part of a group. The twos, threes and fours classes incorporate the IB Primary Years Programme and focus on language, social and physical development, growing life skills. Each day is focused on fostering a love for learning through play, inquiry and a literacy-rich environment. 
Students participate in enrichment programs during the school day including art, music, immersion Spanish and physical education.

I believe that every child deserves a place to go to learn and grow while laughing, smiling, exploring, and feeling supported and successful. Everyday, these children bring joy to my life and I hope I give them the excitement to continue to learn and challenge themselves.
