We offer a fully licensed play-based Preschool Program for kids 2 to 5 years of age.
At Kidz Korner, our main objective is to provide a safe and stimulating environment for your child, customized to their unique learning style. Facilitated by our specially trained staff *, our academic enrichment program helps children learn their ABC's and 123's through carefully planned activities that will allow him/her to develop socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually. We will make your child's first school experience a positive one.
We offer flexible scheduling options! Children can participate in morning, afternoon or full day classes with 2, 3, 4 or 5 sessions per week - extended hours available (maximum 6 hours)
- Our 2 1/2 hour classes will include: circle time, creative crafts, music, dramatic play, science, sensory and nature activities, introduction to technology and field trips
- Children staying during lunch hour (11:30-12:30) will be provided with a lunch prepared at Kidz Korner. Our goal is to provide whole foods, unprocessed, unrefined, free of additives with only natural sweeteners. Our menus also follow the Canada Food Guide. We do provide morning and afternoon snacks as well (seasonal fruits and veggies with milk or water). Dietary restrictions and allergies can be accommodated.
Our Preschool Program runs September through August - registration is accepted anytime (subject to availability).
* All staff are trained in Standard First Aid and CPR-C (infant/child/adult).
