Our  Preschool 1 room focuses on promoting and developing  confidence, independence, individuality and self sufficiency. These are taught through music, fine motor, gross motor, cognition, self-serving meals, sensory, social skills and co-operative play. We do assist with toilet training in order to help prepare for school. The Preschool 1 room slowly works on school-readiness throughout the year, then closer to the new school year, usually around April-May, they begin getting the children ready for the upcoming transition from preschool to kindergarten through various activities and routines used in the room that reflect some of the school settings. The focus is then on promoting behaviours and resilience that will help them transition more smoothly into the school setting.
