Curriculum

Our philosophy on childhood education

It’s how we teach that changes everything!

Movement, art, and music are integrated into all the academic subjects – allowing students to learn the best way they know how, by doing. Our programs are enriched with experiences in nature and the celebration of different world festivals. Outdoor education starts early and includes class trips that support the curriculum.

Our teachers all hold a BC Teacher’s Certificate, and our program meets the learning outcomes set out by the BC Ministry of Education.

Parent & Child

Our Parent and Child program provides a warm and alive environment for young children and their parent or caregiver. We play, partake in natural crafts, songs and share a warm snack together.

Preschool

The Preschool program for children aged 3 to 5 is a warm and supportive environment, where young children can feel “at home.” Much care and preparation are poured into building a healthy, family-like atmosphere where each child can safely explore his/her growing skills and interests, experience others and the beautiful, unfolding world around them.
