Our preschool program offers 4-hour morning and afternoon classes for children between 2.5 and 5 years of age.
The children are involved in a full Montessori curriculum that supports and focuses on the child's developmental aspect in this age group, as he/she experiences a significant growth in independence, self-esteem and self-discipline through introduction to the basics of academics.
Besides the Montessori curriculum, the children are engaging in a full range of extracurricular activities which vary daily such as Music, French, Science, Art. Geography, Circle Time and outdoor activities.
Our kindergarten program offers full- or part-time classes for children between 4-6 years of age.
This is our most enriched and advanced program which prepares children for academic success in elementary school. This program is intended for parents who want their children to excel in all areas.
After this program, our children are accepted to prestigious Montessori, French Immersion and private schools. In this program, English, Math and French are taught individually and in small groups every day which gives the children a chance to advance and further develop their skills in each area.
Our before- and after-school care program offers classes to support learning and achieve better grades for children between 5 and 12 years of age.
In this program, we provide individual or small group lessons and tutorial services. Each teacher specializes in his or her particular subject which allows the children the opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills and advance in their elementary school classes.
From time-to-time and on Professional Development days, we provide field trips for the Out-of-school care children to various locations such as Science World, Burnaby Village Museum, Funky Monkey Fun Park, etc.
