PRE – KINDERGARTEN
Ms. Jennifer, Ms. Marcela and Ms. Meredith offer a Pre-K Program which nicely leads into the Ontario School Curriculum. Children are well prepared for entry to the Kindergarten classroom. Our reduced teacher-child ratios allow us to meet the many needs of the young child, beyond simply academic needs.
We are fortunate to have a fabulous team of supply staff who cover when our regular staff members are off. Many of our Supply staff join our team after doing their college placements here. Our friendly supply staff quickly get to know each child and family at the Centre, as well as any of our regular staff, so are more like a welcome extension to our full-timers.
