Time for 2s
Get your toddlers ahead of the curve — engaging their creative minds, making new friends, and learning to socialize in this program for two year olds! Your children will sing songs, dance, do arts and crafts — all while developing friendship bonds with other children their age. Our trained staff provide them with a level of care that makes it feel like a home away from home. 

KidStart Literacy 

The goal of the program is to provide a quality early learning program that inspires children to create, discover, and achieve. Best practise does more than teach children to count and say the alphabet. Your children will have the opportunity to learn and develop through play and exploration to gain the necessary skills for kindergarten readiness. This will be obtained using the Handwriting with Out Tears, Firm Foundations Early Literacy Teaching and Learning, Safe Spaces, as well as Peaceful Classroom curriculums. Your child will learn how to self regulate basic emotions and how to deal with them appropriately. To learn to treat other with respect and gentleness, to be generous and to help when possible. The daily schedule will provide a balance of structured and unstructured times. The program runs full year from September 2019 to June 2020 and follows the CBE calendar.

Kids "R" Us 
Half day programs for kindergarten children. Children can take part in a different activity each day of the week including skating, yoga, science, swimming and martial arts. You can sign up for as many days as you want from one to five days a week. Transportation to or from school will be available at select schools. This may include Chinook Park, Louis Riel, Nellie McClung, and The Calgary Jewish Academy. Please inquire for details. For more information contact Ryan Pratt by email or 403-537-8598.
