Extended Hours Preschool Program
(Monday through Friday, 8:50am to 2:50pm, includes lunch)
4 year olds have fantastic imaginations and a huge need for an understanding as to how the world works. Using their passion, we develop curriculums that will expand and challenge their abilities by offering them an array of subjects and experiences. Encouraging their need to be part of the world, we make use of all our resources so they can test what they know. Bringing in other experienced teachers, weekly visits by Kerry The Music Guy, Spanish language instructors and environmental educators will add to the rich skills and experiences your child will enjoy. By the end of the year it is our goal that each child is able to ask for what they want, participate in problem solving, share their ideas and have had an opportunity to lead. This program also includes two healthy snacks and an option for a nap, if necessary.

-Preschool children are learning to make decisions and beggining to make choices on their own. They are developing eating habits and attitudes they may carry with them for the rest of their lives. (*Health Canada. Canada's Food Guide to Healthy Eating)
-Schools are an ideal setting to establish and promote healthy eating amongst children and youth. (*Institute of Medecine of the National Academies)
-Schools have an important influence on what children and youth eat. The school environment influences healthy eating in children and youth through the foods that are available, nutrition policies, school nutrition and health curricula, and teacher and peers-modeling.
