In our Preschool and Pre-Kinder Program, we foster the development of our children through a Montessori Inspired Math and Literacy curriculum, coupled with Reggio Inspired Art, Music and Creativity. Each morning of the week, Circle and Learning Time is scheduled in the classroom. As a group, children explore monthly themes and later build on theme knowledge as well as academic and artistic skills during Centre Learning Time. Week by week, children explore different topics that fuel learning through cooperation, hands-on and interactive activities. Children explore concepts such as:

  • Literacy and Language – Phonological awareness, phonics, and vocabulary;

  • Mathematics – Foundational math skills and reasoning skills;

  • Practical Life Skills- developing practical skills used daily;

  • Science – Exploring the natural world;

  • Social and Emotional Development – Cooperative learning and communication.

 

Our learning in this program is tailored to the individual child, to ensure that with encouragement and guidance, each child can progress at their own pace. In the afternoon, children have a scheduled music time during which they learn a variety of songs, finger plays and other Musical skills such as Rhythm, Tempo, Dynamics and Pitch.

My Daughter loves this Daycare. She has tried different ones but this one is her favourite. The staff are always welcoming to kids and I have personally seen a huge development in my child. She learns something new every day and she shares with us as well.

I’m absolutely impressed with Active Start. The front desk staff are very friendly when we check-in and the teachers always have a positive attitude and genuinely care about each kid in the room. The facility is new and very clean, with lots of space in the rooms for kids to play.  The daycare has been very transparent and always keeps parents informed. The daily updates on the app are very useful. It’s nice to see a daily description and photos of what the kids are learning and what types of activities they're participating in.

Melissa Watamanuk

My son simply loves going to Active Start. He is clearly active throughout the day and his development has skyrocketed since we began. I can tell by our conversations in the car on the way home what he has learned about and how excited he is. We had been through two terrible experiences prior to starting with Active Start so, we were very nervous going in. Our son has some health issues so communication is HUGE to us.The staff keep us informed of everything and we trust them completely. I would highly recommend Active Start to others.
