Pre-Kindergarten Program

Program Description

In our Pre-Kindergarten Program, we provide meaningful opportunities for children to connect with the natural world. Learning happens indoors and outdoors; in whole groups, small groups and individually; through play, teacher directed lessons and child initiated activities that build literacy, numeracy, science and social studies skills.

For those who have experienced our Nursery Program, this is a continuation of their connection to nature and learning. For those who are new to the program, this is the beginning of a journey into establishing a connection between themselves, nature, and their learning.
