The morning program offers many opportunities for creating, exploring, experimenting and social experiences. We also have plenty of indoor large muscle equipment such as climbing frames and jumping tubes which are used frequently, especially on rainy days. Children are encouraged to explore all of the centers in the classroom, including an “Open Art Area,” at any time during the class.

Our teachers plan activities for the children as well as facilitate spontaneous learning through play so that the children may validate new ideas, expand their knowledge, and encourage problem solving. An idea or theme can capture their curiosity for a few days or sometimes extend over the course of a month. Our curriculum is constantly evolving and builds on children’s interests, strengths and needs, helping them become more effective learners.

Starting in October after children are familiar with the teachers and the environment, we go on regular field trips. These include a visit to a local fire station, the library, the pumpkin patch or the Children’s Festival at Granville Island. In May and June, we spend Tuesdays at Locarno beach.

At Wesbrook Preschool, we prioritize community engagement and whole family involvement. We regularly invite families to join us for classroom celebrations and organize evening events to foster a strong sense of community. We also try to incorporate seasonal and cultural topics where we encourage whole family involvement. At Wesbrook Preschool, we have an expectation of family participation because we recognize the valuable impact it has on a child’s holistic development. Join us as we create a collaborative and supportive community for your child and your family.
