News & Events at Wesbrook Preschool

Parent Education Night Jan 2021

Wesbrook Preschool welcomed back Christopher Burt in January to speak to our parents.  The topic of Chris’ presentation was Promoting Peer Social Competence: A seminar specific to parents with preschoolers. Learn the importance of this key developmental skill, how its connected to emotional self-regulation and school readiness, and how you can support your preschooler to initiate and maintain friendships.

Christopher gave a wonderful presentation, full of hilarious and relatable examples of parent and child behaviour, and realistic tips for dealing with our small humans.  Playing with peers is different from play with siblings.  The presentation explored the importance of peer play and how much is learned through children’s social interactions.  We can support our children by helping them name and accurately express their feelings.  During play, parents can help build wanted social behaviours by providing descriptive commentary.

Christopher proved to be an engaging and informative professional resource.  It was a pleasure having him speak to our Wesbrook community.

Two Days of Biking and Fun

Our Bike-a-thon took place on Thursday and Friday, October 15th and 16th. The contest was a fundraising event sponsored by Little Kitchen Academy. This was an event for all the little ones to bring their bikes, trikes, wagons and scooters to Wesbrook to ride along a marked path with their friends.

The basketball courts at Trimble Park, near Wesbrook, were chosen as the venue, and the 3’s and 4’s had their ride there on 15th. The 2’s, whose contest was planned for 16th, pedalled indoor at the preschool due to the rain.

Everyone enjoyed the event to the fullest. All the little athletes were very happy with their gold medal and little trophy. They were cheered on by their families, grandparents, and friends, who had fun just as much as the kids, and made generous donations to support our kids, as they always do.
