Learning through play…

Learning centres and play expe-riences emphasize inquiry learning through freedom of choice with loose parts play and open-ended out-comes. Educators support the children’s inquiry by helping them ask questions, test out ideas, and de-scribe their experiences.

How Your Child Will Build Towards Their Developmental Milestones At WVCP:

Language and Literacy Development

We support language and literacy learning through a daily circle time that include songs, stories, and interactive games. These activities encourage children’s expression and introduce them to the different uses of language.

Cognitive Development

We support cognitive development by preparing a learning environment that will stimulate and engage each child’s natural curiosity. We offer a variety of structured learning centres that will stimulate problem-solving skills.

Physical Development

Educators support development in both gross and fine motor skills by planning activities that stretch the children’s capabilities and allow them to safely test new skills. Educators scaffold developing skills to help children build confidence and to support their well being.

Social and Emotional Development

Perhaps most importantly in the preschool environment, educators support children’s social and emotional learning. Educators model pro-social interactions and help children navigate social conflict.

PreSchool Program

Our preschool program is designed to develop kindergarten readiness. Our stepping stone program prepares children for school by experiencing aspects of the kindergarten curriculum with the flexibility and ease of preschool. The program offers a play-based learning approach built on the children’s inquiries and interests, similar to the structure of Ontario’s Full Day Kindergarten program. Our preschoolers are the leaders of their own learning. Our educators support both the leadership and the learning.
