Preschool is a time of rapid growth and development for children. It is an opportunity to impact their holistic development. At Aberdeen Hall we are focused on setting a foundation for their social, emotional and intellectual success for both school and life. Our enhanced, modern Montessori based, instructional program is taught by certified Early Childhood Educators and dedicated Montessori trained teachers. Our enthusiastic teachers work diligently with our students to establish the groundwork of strong primary literacy and numeracy skills, develop self-esteem and foster a life-long love of learning.
Our Preschool Program accepts students that are both 3 and 4 years old. Children applying to Preschool must be at least 3 years old, by December 31 of the year they intend to commence. During the admissions process, we assess the social and emotional readiness of the child to begin preschool. For example a willingness to be independent from parents/guardians and being fully potty-trained are requirements. A visit day in Preschool is scheduled in order to determine readiness.
As of September 2020, our program will run as a full-day Early Years Preschool & Daycare program. The program runs Monday-Friday from 8:45am-3:45pm. We operate from the beginning of September to the third week in June. Please note we do not offer drop-in options for Preschool or Daycare.
The classroom set-up and Montessori material are designed to allow each child to progress at his/her own rate and for unlimited growth and development specific to each individual’s interests.
Favourite things to do:
Daycare (11:45am-3:45pm daily)
Our daycare exercises the Learning Through Play philosophy. We facilitate various experiences to promote their social, emotional and cognitive development. During this time the children will engage in imaginative play, nature exploration and find new ways to create and build. Each day the children are provided time to recharge their batteries with independent, quiet activities or a rest break. During the warmer months we spend plenty of time outdoors enjoying fresh air.
